New recruit Davy Klaassen has been backed to bring some much-needed attacking intent to the Everton midfield after joining the Toffees from Ajax.
The 24-year-old Netherlands international has signed a five-year contract at Goodison Park, becoming the second major arrival within a matter of hours, following the £25million arrival of England Under-21 goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from Sunderland.
And Blues head coach Ronald Koeman is delighted to have landed his compatriot, who he rates highly and who he believes can give his side more of a threat in central areas.
He told the club's official website: "He's a player who is only 24 but has a lot of experience and is a leader on the pitch. He has already captained Ajax for two seasons and that shows you the type of person he is.
"He is hard-working, likes to press and, of course, will give us more creativity and goals.
"It is another major signing and I am really happy we have been able to complete the deal so early in the summer."
Klaassen won three Dutch league titles during his time in Amsterdam, while he made his senior international debut in a friendly against France just before the 2014 World Cup finals.
And Klaassen is keen to make his mark and get amongst the goals, having scored 44 times in 126 league appearances for Ajax.
He added: "I'm an attacking midfielder player who likes to get in the box. I also like to be aggressive on the field and press all the time. I like to score and create goals and I like to win."
Everton can be backed at 10/1 to finish in the top four in the Premier League next season, while they are 11/4 to secure a top-six spot.
