Boris Mathis 60

Everton have confirmed the acquisition of 19-year-old Boris Mathis who left Metz in France as a free agent in July 2017.

News that the striker was to sign for the Blues was leaked on Twitter with the club later announcing his capture after he put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

He came through Lyon's youth academy before joining Metz two years ago and he made his Ligue 1 debut earlier this year.

"I am very happy and honoured to sign for Everton,” he told evertonfc.com after the formalities of his move were completed. "It is a great club and I have always liked English football and the Premier League."

"I have followed Everton from France. The Club has some great players and I'm very excited to become part of it.

"My dream is to play for the first team here," he added. "Ronald Koeman is a huge figure, not only as a coach now but his reputation as a player speaks for itself as well. I want to play in the Premier League for Everton."

But his progression has been one struggle after another since the bullish attacker arrived at Everton.  Ominously he was not picked for a single Under-23 Premier League 2 game by David Unsworth, with competition in the attacking areas fierce among the Everton youngsters.

After making his debut and scoring a consolation goal in Everton's opening defeat to Wolfsburg in The Premier League International Cup, two more sub appearances in that competition and unused sub opportunities in two EFL Trophy matches represent the only action he saw in his first half-season with Everton.

A loan move to Northampton Town in January 2018 was supposed to help him develop and give him some first-team action. But, after just five appearances and no goals, he has been sent back following upheaval at the Cobblers with the sacking of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and the early termination of a number of other loanees, this represents the latest setback in his debut English season.

Mathis has one more season on his Everton contract. His sophomore year will have to be vastly superior to his freshman one if he is to have any sort of long-term future at Goodison Park.
