Neal Maupay has completed a move to Everton from Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee.
The 26-year-old forward joins the Toffees on a three-year contract until the end of June 2025 with an option of a further year.
He becomes the club’s sixth summer addition, following the arrivals of James Tarkowski, Rúben Vinagre, Dwight McNeil, Conor Coady and Amadou Onana.
“Everton is a great club with unbelievable fans and I am so, so happy to be here,” Maupay told evertontv.
“It feels amazing. It was an easy choice for me when I started to talk with the Club. I knew straight away I wanted to play for Everton and help the Club to succeed.
“I’m excited and it’s a new challenge for me.
“I will do everything I can for Everton. That’s what the fans want – they want players that are ready to give their best, and ready to fight.
“When I step on the pitch, I will run, I will tackle, I will try to make assists and score goals. Whatever the team needs, I will do it, because I want to be successful and I want my team to win.”
Maupay began his career at Nice in his homeland and made his professional debut aged just 16 years and 32 days, making him the third-youngest player in French top-flight history.
