Everton edging closer to signing Iliman Ndiaye

Everton are close to securing the signing of Marseille striker Iliman Ndiaye, according to Alan Myers. 

The Sky Sports journalist wrote on X (25 June) that the deal is “moving forward” and the Toffees are edging closer to securing his signing.

Fabrizio Romano reported earlier on 25 June that the 24-year-old forward has signed a five-year contract to join Goodison Park, and Everton have beaten other suitors to win the race for his signature.

It has been reported that the Toffees will pay around £17 million, including add-ons and Marseille are happy to accept those terms.

Myers added on X that there’s still some work to do, but a deal has been agreed upon.

If everything goes well, Ndiaye will become the third signing of the summer for Everton.

The Toffees have already sealed the signing of midfielder Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa. Jack Harrison, who impressed last season on loan, has re-joined the club on loan yet again from Leeds United.

A host of clubs showed interest in signing Ndiaye, but he was very keen to join Goodison Park. Now it appears that Everton will get his signature over the line in the next few days.

Everton already sold Lewis Dobbin this summer to Aston Villa and are looking to stay within the limits of the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Dominic Calvert-Lewin was heavily linked with a move away from Goodison Park, with Newcastle making an attempt to sign him. However, the Magpies have pulled out of the race after Everton refused to lower their asking price.

Ndiaye previously played in England with Sheffield United where he contributed 14 goals and 10 assists in 46 games for the Blades in the Championship.
