Everton have confirmed the arrival of Bernard on their official Twitter account in what’s proving a very hectic Deadline Day on Merseyside for the Blues.
Many of us were expecting the Blues to be busy today in terms of finishing off long-running rumours and Bernard is the next to be completed with him arriving on a 4-year-deal.
The Brazilian has had a work permit approved and joins from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk in what should prove a very exciting signing.
He’s been flirting with a move to one of Europe’s big leagues for some time and now is his chance to really show what he can do.
Indeed, sometimes players from lesser leagues on the continent can struggle but this guy has proven a consistently top performer and I have no qualms that he’ll fit in.
He’s got plenty of skill and quality on the ball and should gel quickly with the likes of Richarlison and Marco Silva helping him out.
