Italy midfielder Bonaventura has spent three campaigns at the San Siro but there is talk of him moving on this summer with Juventus and Roma both reportedly priming offers for his service. Tactically versatile, the 28-year-old could bring a little more work rate to the Toffees midfield and some extra quality too.
Everton are hoping their transfer business goes better than last season, following some flop signings.
In a statement, the Dutchman said: “The fantastic passion of the fans for their club, the magnificent history of the club over the years and the ambition and purpose we have as people tasked with driving the club forward all mean that we need to be competing for honours against the Premier League elite.
“It is no straightforward challenge but this must be our motivation each and every day.
“I am looking forward to working with Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright, whom I thank for entrusting me with this role and responsibility, and I am also looking forward to working with the Board of Directors and with our new CEO, Denise Barrett-Baxendale. I know we have very committed people here who want only the best for Everton.
“It is only a challenge such as this which could have persuaded me to leave PSV where I am indebted to the many people whose collective effort led to some great achievements.
“Now we will look to build something really strong and lasting here at Everton.”
