We are approaching the conclusion of the sixth weekend of the Premier League summer transfer window and all clubs have made at least one signing.

The Brazil international has signed a three-year contract with the Toffees and has been reunited with manager Carlo Ancelotti after their time together in Naples.

Elsewhere, Wolverhampton Wanderers announced their first major signing as well with teenage forward Fabio Silva joining them on a club-record deal from Porto.

Let’s have a look at the top transfer stories at the moment.
