REVEALED: Everton trumped Torino to land Josh King

Everton saw off competition from Torino to land Bournemouth striker Josh King last week, it has been revealed.

King's deadline day move to Everton scuppered Serie A side Torino's plans to sign the Norwegian international for free.

That's according to Matteo Pedrosi, the editor of Corriere Granata, who told CalcioStyle: "In the last few days of the transfer market, Toro had resumed contact with Joshua King, a Norwegian striker already followed in the summer.

"By expiring his contract with Bournemouth he could have arrived on a free transfer in July, but in the end Ancelotti's Everton won, who decided to withdraw him immediately in January, also beating the competition of Fulham, another interested club."
