The 20-year-old central midfielder has agreed a five-year contract until the end of June 2027.

He becomes Everton's fifth signing of the summer after James Tarkowski, Ruben Vinagre, Dwight McNeil and Conor Coady, who joined on loan on Monday. Onana says that Blue is his favourite colour, which is a few steps above the old chesnut of admitting that you supported the club as a boy. "It feels great to join Everton. I know it's a big, big club, one of the biggest in England," Onana told evertontv. "It's something I want to be part of for many years. "Everyone here showed they really wanted me and they have a plan for me, so I really appreciated the talks I had with the manager and Director of Football [Kevin Thelwell]. They told me how they wanted me to play and I enjoyed it. "They both have a lot of ambition and that's the type of guy I am so it matches. "The manager was one of the big reasons. He played at the highest level, won many things and was a midfielder, too. It means a lot to have interest from him and I think he can teach me many things. "The Everton fans are amazing. I saw their support last season and it's also one of the reasons why I chose Everton. I am looking forward to meeting them at Goodison and, just hearing about the atmosphere, I get goosebumps. "Blue is my favourite colour, too! I am going to give everything for the Club and our supporters."
