have agreed an £8million fee with Manchester City
for England international midfielder Fabian Delph.
The 29-year-old is expected to have a medical on Saturday ahead of finalising terms on a three-year contract.
Marco Silva wants Delph to add experience and leadership to his side as he looks to push on from last season's promising finish.
He also wants to add a centre back and two forwards.
Delph has been used as a squad player in Pep Guardiola's first two seasons in charge of City.
He has often been deployed as a left back in the absence of Benjamin Mendy.
Pep Guardiola's side are jetting off to China on Saturday before then travelling to Hong Kong and Japan next week.
The Premier League champions are now expected to leave the England international behind as it looks like a switch to Everton can be completed in the coming days.
Delph, out of contract next summer, is free to leave the Etihad Stadium in search of regular first-team football and City were originally looking to recoup in the region of £15m but the deal will go no higher than £10m.
He was reduced to just five further appearances for Guardiola in the second half of last season after a sending off during defeat at Leicester City in December.
City moved to land midfielder Rodri from Atletico Madrid and re-signed Angelino at left back, pushing Delph down the pecking order in both positions.
