Marseilles winger Andre Ayew has agreed a pre-contract agreement to move to Everton FC next summer, according to reports this morning.
The Ghanaian winger’s contract with the French giants expires in June and he is reportedly keen on a move to the Premier League.
Everton are said to have moved quickly to secure his signature and the 25-year-old is said to be set to complete a move to Goodison Park in the summer.
Ayew can play on either wing or up front, he’s scored 52 goals for Marseille in 178 games for the club.
Roberto Martinez is planning an £8m move for former Goodison loanee Gerard Deulofeu, according to the Daily Star.
The Spanish winger spelt the entire 2013/14 campaign on loan at Goodison Park and impressed many Evertonians with a series of impressive displays on the flanks for the Blues.
Deulofeu returned to Barcelona but after being farmed out on loan to Sevilla by new boss Luis Enrique, the 20-year-old is reportedly ready to quit the Camp Nou.
It is reported that Martinez will try to take advantage by tabling an £8m bid in the summer transfer window.
Everton are also said to be in pole position to sign another Barcelona youngster, Adama Traore.
According to reports today, the 18-year-old could move to Goodison Park on loan after Barcelona were impressed with the progress Deulofeu made at Goodison Park.
It is said that Barca believe 18-year-old forward Traore has huge potential but want him to play more regularly at a top club.
Traore has already appeared in La Liga and the Champions League for the Spanish giants, and has scored in his only appearance in the Copa del Rey.
