Everton have completed the signing of Youssef Chermiti from Sporting Lisbon for a reported fee of £15 million.
Youssef Chermiti has signed a four-year deal with the Toffees, which will see him remain at Goodison Park until June 2027.
He made 22 appearances for Sporting Lisbon last season, scoring 3 goals and providing 2 assists across all competitions.
Confiming his arrival to the Merseyside club, Everton put out a statement on their official website which reads:
“Youssef Chermiti has signed for Everton from Sporting Clube de Portugal for an undisclosed fee, the striker agreeing a four-year contract until the end of June 2027.”
He becomes the 3rd arrival to Sean Dyche’s side this summer, joining Arnaut Danjuma and Ashley Young.
The 19-year-old goal poacher has got immense talents which could see him become one of the best in years to come.
Chermiti is delighted at signing for Everton
Youssef Chermiti also had his thoughts on joining Everton, expressing that it was a move that he “couldn’t turn down”.
In his first interview with the club, Chermiti said: “I couldn’t turn down this opportunity – it’s a big moment and I’m fully focused to get to work.”
Everton finished 17th in the Premier League last season, with their spot in the Premier League being guaranteed on the final day of the season.
Their top-scorer for 2022/23 scored a miniature 7 goals throughout the league season, a poor output for a Premier League club.
However, the responsibility of goals might not be placed on the young attacker’s shoulders but he might come into the Premier League and flourish.
Everton commence the 2023/24 season on Saturday, August 12, 2023 and they will begin by welcoming Fulham to their home turf.
Youssef Chermiti made his professional debut with Sporting in a 2-2 Primeira Liga encounter with Benfica on the 15th of January 2023.
