Everton have made Ajax captain Davy Klaassen their second big-money signing of the day.
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder underwent a medical at Finch Farm on Wednesday and has agreed a five-year contract, having been signed for a fee of £23.6m.
Klaassen is fresh from an outstanding 2016/17 season, having scored 16 times as Ajax reached the Europa League final and finished second in the Eredivisie.
And he has also established himself as a regular member of the Dutch national side – he now has 14 caps to his name and has scored four times.
Everton completed the £30m club record signing of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford earlier on Thursday and the arrival of Klaassen is a further statement of intent from last season’s seventh-place Premier League finishers.
