The forward is set to be Everton’s fifth signing of the season and could be their most important addition.

Everton have completed the signing of Udinese striker Beto on a permanent deal, according to the latest reports.

Multiple sources are claiming that he has completed his medical tests and he has now been officially announced as an Everton player.

The towering Portuguese forward scored 10 times in the league last season and also provided two assists and, at 25, he arrives ready to make an instant impact after developing across the past few seasons in Italy.

He would be another attacking addition to go alongside Jack Harrison, Arnaut Danjuma and Youssef Chermiti - all four are being tasked with helping Sean Dyche’s side be more potent in front of goal after failing to score so far this season.

It would also help to take the pressure of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who finds himself out of action once again, this time with a freak cheekbone injury.

With players still recovering from injuries, it’s unlikely we’ll see a full strength side including Dyche’s new signings until after the upcoming international break, but here’s how Everton could line-up after signing Beto, with a fully fit squad.
