English Premier League side Everton have captured the exciting Brazilian forward Bernard, holding off the challenge of a number of clubs at home and abroad. The deal will be announced, subject to a work permit, with Bernard due for a medical on Merseyside on Tuesday.The free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk is considered an excellent coup for Marco Silva whose personal intervention swung the deal Everton’s way.  Bernard, 26, had been considering offers from Chelsea and West Ham as well as AC Milan and Inter Milan. Tottenham were also linked with the player but hadn’t made their intentions clear. Italian media were even heralding his impending arrival in Serie A.Ambitious West Ham, big spenders in this window, were confident at the end of last week but they were unclear on his role in the team amid an abundance of flair attackers. Bernard, who has 14 caps for Brazil and cost Shakhtar Donetsk £40million, can play as an inside forward coming off the left side or as a No 10 behind a striker.  He is understood to be relishing the chance to play with countryman Richarlison and what could prove a formidable partnership with their new signing from Watford. With the window closing on Thursday, Everton are happy to have completed the deal especially with Chelsea’s emergence in the process late on.Photo Credit: Getty
