Iliman Ndiaye agrees five year deal to join Everton

Everton are on course to sign Marseille striker Iliman Ndiaye in the summer transfer window.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Toffees have offered around £17 million, including add-ons, and Marseille have accepted those terms. As a result, there is a “deal in place”, and the transfer is all good to go through.

The 24-year-old striker, who was keen to moving to Goodison Park, has agreed a five-year deal with Everton.

Romano, in his trademark style, has confirmed the deal as “here we go”, which means the Toffees fans can expect the transfer to be completed in the next few days.

Writing on X (25 June), the transfer guru adds that other clubs showed interest in signing Ndiaye, but Everton moved quickly to secure the deal.

Everton close to completing third summer signing

Despite their financial woes, the Toffees are very active in the summer market, and it seems they will land their next target shortly.

Everton have already signed Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa, while Jack Harrison has joined on loan yet again from Leeds United. Ndiaye will become the third signing of the summer for the Toffees unless there’s a dramatic U-turn.

Sean Dyche badly needed to bolster the forward department in the summer, and he has now landed a striker. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is staying for now after Newcastle decided to pull out of the deal, but he has only a year left on his current contract.

Beto has failed to make a big impact, and he is being targeted by clubs in Turkey. Ndiaye failed to impress in his first season at the French club, contributing three goals and three assists in 30 league appearances.

However, his performances for Sheffield United during his time in England caught Everton’s attention. He managed 14 goals and 10 assists in 46 games for the Blades in the Championship, and Everton will hope that he can replicate those numbers in the Premier League next season.
