Everton have completed the transfer of Neal Maupay.
Maupay, who turned 26 this month, has been Brighton’s top scorer in each of the last three seasons, scoring 27 goals in 109 Premier League appearances.
With the striker out of contract at the end of the 2022/23 season, Brighton had to cash in on the Frenchman before he left for nothing.
Maupay told evertontv: “Everton is a great club with unbelievable fans and I am so, so happy to be here.
“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.”
Neal Maupay signed a three-year contract until the end of June 2025 with an option of a further year.
