Udinese striker Beto has departed Italy by private jet and is set to complete his move to Premier League club Everton in the coming days. The Brazilian is expected to arrive in England later today ahead of a move to the Toffees, lining up as a replacement for the oft injured Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is spending his latest stint on the sidelines.
Sky Sport Italia report that the final details have been resolved between the two clubs, with medical tests scheduled for tomorrow, followed by the announcement of his signing.
Everton had initially offered €25 million, but the Bianconeri requested an improved offer; The Merseyside club upped their offer to €30 million, plus bonuses, an offer Udinese felt was too good to refuse.
The transfer will be the second most expensive transfer in Udinese’s history, second only to that of Rodrigo De Paul to Atletico Madrid for €35 million.
