The French striker will be a welcome replacement after Richarlison left Everton for Tottenham Hotspur during this transfer window.

Everton on Friday signed striker Neal Maupay from Premier League rival Brighton for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old, who scored 27 times in 110 appearances over three years at Brighton, penned a three-year contract with The Toffees.

“Everton is a great club with unbelievable fans and I am so, so happy to be here,” Maupay told evertontv.

“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.”

Maupay was not signed in time to face his former club Brentford on Saturday.

Everton has lost two of its three opening games this season, has only one point and scored just two goals. It sits fourth from bottom of the table while Brighton is in fifth place with seven points from three matches.
