Silva delighted to complete striker deal

The 19-year-old Italy forward has signed a five-year deal with the Toffees, to become the club's fifth summer signing. The highly-rated hitman scored six goals in 13 appearances in helping Juventus claim last term's Serie A title, having made his club debut as a 16-year-old. The Italian club said the fee was an initial 27.5million euros. Everton have already recruited Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Jonas Lossl this summer. Now the Toffees hope the livewire frontman will add a significant boost to their squad ahead of the new Premier League campaign. 'A striker was one of our priority signings this summer,' said Silva. 'Moise is strong, fast, with many good qualities as a striker and he is just 19 years old. He has talent and he is ready to work, ready to improve our squad and gives us different solutions. 'Of course he was at a big club, now he's come to another big club and is ready to fight for this challenge and to give everything to Everton Football Club.'
