Everton have bolstered their strike force with the signing of Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o.

The 33-year-old joins the Toffees on a free transfer after being released by Chelsea last season.

The Four-time African Footballer of the Year has signed a two-year-contract to play for Roberto Martinez’s side.

Eto’o scored 12 goals in 35 appearances for Chelsea following his arrival on a one-year deal from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala last August.

He could even make his Everton debut against Chelsea at Goodison Park on Saturday.

His transfer to Everton comes just a few days after it was announced the striker, who led the controversial strike over wages that delayed Cameroon’s trip to Brazil in June, was dropped from the national team.
