El Bilal Toure on cusp of Everton transfer
Almeria and Mali international forward El Bilal Toure is on the cusp of a move to Everton, as the 21-year-old looks poised to agree terms on a five year contract at Goodison Park. Toure, who recently impressed in Spain, scored 7 goals in 20 games last season and had a three year spell with French club Reims between 2020 and 2022.
The talented striker has caught the eye of numerous top European scouts, and Everton, who are looking for attacking reinforcements before the beginning of the new campaign, are edging ever closer to a deal for a play who is likely to replace the outgoing Neal Maupay.
Manager Sean Dyche has made the addition of new attackers to his squad a top priority, and is confident that the club will beat other rival suitors to agree a deal.
The Ivory Coast-born striker, who can play as a right winger or as a lone forward, is valued at around 13 million euros by his club. However, Almeria are seeking around 17 million euros to guarantee a smooth transfer deal before the end of the window in August.
