French Under 21 international to make Goodison Park move.
Everton boss David Moyes has won the signing race for French sensation M’Baye Niang – after agreeing a £2million-plus deal with Caen.
Moyes beat Arsenal and AC Milan in the chase – Manchester City and Tottenham were also contenders – and will bring the teenager in this weekend.
Niang spent time at Goodison earlier this month, as revealed by MirrorFootball, and Moyes used his new financial strength following the sale of Jack Rodwell to Manchester City to make the best offer.

If indeed Everton do see off interest from Arsenal, AC Milan, Tottenham and Man City to sign the impressive 17 year old Caen striker then they will have pulled off something of a coup.
Perhaps the teenager felt that he would have a better chance of securing first team football at Goodison Park and the signing of the French Under 21 international would become David Moyes fifth signing of what has been a busy summer of transfer market business.
The Toffees boss has already brought in Steven Naismith, Kevin Mirallas, Steven Pienaar and Ben McLaughlin and covered the cost of doing so from the sale of Jack Rodwell to Everton.
17 year old M’Baye Niang is a quality youngster who last season became a regular for Ligue 1 side Caen, who were relegated to the second tier, perhaps leading to the inevitable departure of the French starlet.
