Premier League club Everton have announced the signing of 23-year-old midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin from Mainz 05 on a five-year contract.
The Ivorian arrived for an undisclosed fee believed to be €30m, replacing the outgoing Idrissa Gueye who joined Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the week.
Gbamin joined Mainz from RC Lens for €5m in 2016.
“I’m excited because Everton is a great club here in England with a big history and ambition so I didn’t think for more than a moment – I wanted to come here. I like to go in the duels. I like to run a lot and tackle. I also pass good and have a good transition. All the rest, the fans will see. I will give everything on the pitch,” said Gbamin.
