Everton are close to completing a deal for Samuel Eto'o, according to Sky sources.
The 33-year-old Cameroon international has been linked with a number of Premier League sides this summer, but Everton are expected to secure the striker on a two-year contract after he undergoes a medical today.
He scored 12 goals in 35 games for the Blues last season, but the four-time African Footballer of the Year fell out with manager Jose Mourinho and was released in July.
The introduction of Eto'o will give Roberto Martinez a much-needed attacking option as he is still waiting for Arouna Kone to recover from a knee injury.
He joins Romelu Lukaku, another former Chelsea man who completed a Â£28m move from Stamford Bridge last month, while the west London side have also loaned Christian Atsu to Everton.
