Neal Maupay has been playing second fiddle to Danny Welbeck at Brighton

Everton have completed the signing of striker Neal Maupay from Premier League rivals Brighton for an undisclosed fee.

The French player has joined the Toffees on a three-year deal, keeping him at the club until 2025.

Maupay has scored 26 goals in 102 appearances for Brighton, having signed for the Seagulls for £16m from Brentford in 2019.

“Everton is a great club with unbelievable fans and I am so, so happy to be here,” the 26-year-old said.

“I’m excited and it’s a new challenge for me.”

Neal Maupay becomes Everton’s sixth signing of the summer following the arrivals of James Tarkowski, Ruben Vinagre, Dwight McNeil, Conor Coady and Amadou Onana.

Everton boss Frank Lampard has been keen to strengthen his attacking options after losing Richarlison to Tottenham in the summer and an early-season injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

“We’re delighted to bring Neal to Everton, a player of proven quality in the Premier League,” he said.
