Everton have agreed a £28m fee with Paris Saint-Germain for midfielder Idrissa Gueye, Sky Sports News understands.
It is understood that the Senegal international's personal terms are not expected to pose a problem after both clubs settled on the £28m transfer fee.
Sky Sports News reported in January that the Ligue 1 champions were interested in signing the 29-year-old.
Everton rejected Paris Saint-Germain's initial £21.5m bid despite the player handing in a transfer request at Goodison Park.
Sky Sports News understands Everton had been unwilling to sign off on the transfer until they had brought in a suitable replacement.
Toffees manager Marco Silva had insisted the signing of Fabian Delph from Manchester City would not affect the club's stance on Gueye but it appears otherwise.
