Everton have continued to make transfer inroads by snapping up former Metz striker Boris Mathis on a two-year contract.
The 19-year-old, a product of Lyon’s academy who made his Ligue 1 debut in April, was out of contract this summer and will hook up with the Toffees’ under-23 squad initially.
“It is a great club and I have always liked English football and the Premier League.
“I have followed Everton from France.
“The club has some great players and I’m very excited to become part of it.
“My dream is to play for the first team here. I want to play in the Premier League for Everton,” he told evertonfc.com.
“Ronald Koeman is a huge figure, not only as a coach now but his reputation as a player speaks for itself as well.”
Everton have already added Dutch defender Nathangelo Markelo.
