The 24-year-old centre-back arrives for a fee of
£9.5 million, penning a five-year deal, and
becomes Roberto Martinez's sixth summer
signing and second defensive recruit
Everton have completed the signing of Ramiro
Funes Mori from River Plate for £9.5 million.

A deal for the 24-year-old has been in the offing
for a number of days, with Funes Mori in
attendance for Everton's 2-0 loss to Manchester
City on August 23, and the Argentine has now
penned a five-year deal.

Funes becomes Roberto Martinez's sixth summer
signing after the arrivals of Tom Cleverley, Gerard
Deulofeu, David Henen, Mason Holgate and
Leandro Rodriguez and will wear the No.25 shirt.

"I'm going to give it 100 per cent every time I go
out there to play for Everton," he told the club's
offical website. "When I heard about their interest,
I didn't think twice."

Funes Mori recently won the Copa Libertadores
with River Plate, having made over 100
appearances for the Argentine outfit since arriving
in 2011.

The 24-year-old is not believed to have been
signed as a replacement for John Stones, who is
still the subject of serious interest from Chelsea.
