Ajax captain Davy Klaassen agrees personal terms with Everton

Everton are understood to have made the Dutch international one of their key summer transfer targets and have been in negotiations with Ajax over a possible £26m deal for Klaassen

The Liverpool Echo now reports that the 24-year-old has agreed a long-term deal on Merseyside, with the switch expected to be completed in the coming days.

Klaassen scored 16 goals for Ajax last season, helping the Amsterdam outfit to the Europa League final and a runners-up place in the Eredivisie.

Everton have also agreed a fee for Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford this week, while talks are understood to be ongoing over a possible move for Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez.
