Everton Close to Signing Brazilian Bernard on a Free

Everton are closing in on the free transfer of Brazil international Bernard, as per reports.

The Blues look to have won the race to sign the former Shakhtar Donetsk man, who is expected on Merseyside to complete a medical and finalise personal terms on Tuesday.

Bernard, 25, rejected Shakhtar’s offer of a lucrative new contract, and had been attracting serlous interest from a number of clubs across Europe, including West Ham and Inter Milan.

Everton, though, are his preferred choice, and he is now set to become the third major signing of the Marco Silva era at Goodison Park.

Silva has been desperate to add to his squad before Thursday’s transfer deadline, with Everton starting their Premier League campaign away to newly-promoted Wolves on Saturday.

He has already brought in another Brazilian, Richarlison, in a £40million ($52m) deal and last week spent around £18m ($23m) to bring Lucas Digne to the club. More are expected to follow this week.
