🚨GOOD NEWS : Everton Nearing Completion of Deal for Highly-Rated International Forward


Everton are keen to complete the signing of Iliman Ndiaye. The Olympique Marseille striker is looking for a move after just one year at the club from the south of France.

Everton will sign the Senegalese international

Agreement in the final phase.

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, the deal is entering its final phase. The player has agreed to join Everton, but the final details are still unknown.

The Italian journalist also said that Everton are looking for Newcastle winger Yankub Minteh. However, they face competition to sign the 20-year-old from Olympique Lyonnais.

Who is Iliman Ndiaye?

Ndiaye was a Marseille youth player, but at the age of 14 he was transferred to the Senegalese club AS Dakar Sacré-Cœur. He later bounced around lower league clubs in England before signing for Sheffield United as a 19-year-old.

His breakthrough season was with The Blades in the 2022/23 season. Described as “excellent”, the Senegalese international had 25 assists in the Championship which saw the club promoted. After success in England’s second division, he returned to his boyhood club for £14.5m.

However, the form did not continue for Marseille as he managed just eight assists, with five assists and 3 goals.

What Iliman Ndiaye brings to Everton

Ndiaye was mostly deployed as a lone striker at Marseille but was featured on both wings during the season. However, he is likely to be deployed in an attacking midfielder/forward role at Everton.

The 24-year-old is expected to take over from the aging Abdoulaye Doucoure, who has been key to the Toffees’ survival over the past three seasons. He could also provide cover in a lone striker role with Dominic Calvert-Lewin rumored to be set to leave Everton this transfer window.

Exciting when the ball is at his feet, Ndiaye completes 55% of the tackles he attempts. This puts him in the top 5% of attacking midfielders and wingers in Europe’s top five leagues. This is another relatively young member of the Toffees squad as they look to rejuvenate the squad with imminent new ownership.
