The Brazilian was pictured at the Pall Mall Medical Centre in Liverpool and was met by an Everton representative for what is expected to be a routine examination. Barring any unexpected issues, he should complete his free transfer ahead of Thursday's 5pm deadline.

Everton have been chasing the 23-year-old since his impressive World Cup exploits.

However, Chelsea are not interested in selling to a direct rival, as the Blues take a similar stance to how they approached United's interest in Willian.

Everton manager Marco Silva has made no secret of his desire to add a new centre-back to his squad, particularly after the departures of Ramiro Funes Mori and Ashley Williams. "We have to sign new players there". He moved to Shakhtar for around £40million that summer and won three Ukrainian league titles.

Defender Yerry Mina is having a medical to sign for Everton in Barcelona as he closes in on a move to Goodison Park.

CaughtOffside have published a report claiming that Chelsea will look to use Man United's interest in Kurt Zouma to their advantage and attempt to poach Martial.

The Frenchman, who has also been linked with a move to Everton, impressed on loan at Stoke last season but will struggle to force his way through a queue of central defenders now he is back with the Blues. "He's played a lot of games previously and it's a great test for him to come here".
