Turkish club Fenerbahce have confirmed that they will be selling Nani to Valencia in Spain. The former Manchester United player had been linked with Everton after decent performances during the ongoing Euro 2016 tournament where Portugal play Poland in the quarterfinals tomorrow. Valencia have not confirmed the deal as yet, but will pay €8.5million to bring Nani to the Mestalla.

Inter Milan and Liverpool were two other clubs linked to the winger along with the Blues and the La Liga club. The 29-year-old featured in a total of 47 games this season in Turkey, scoring 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions.

The winger picture remains unclear at Everton beyond Kevin Mirallas, Aaron Lennon and Gerard Deulofeu. Aiden McGeady is still an Everton player after spending the second half of last season at Sheffield Wednesday where he was eventually dropped from the side after a string of poor performances.

New manager Ronald Koeman is yet to make a senior team signing since his appointment at Finch Farm, and fans are waiting with bated breath to see what his first move will be.
