Josh Bowler 42

QPR midfielder Josh Bowler was confirmed as another addition to Everton's Under-23s squad after undergoing a medical.

He is a highly-rated young midfielder and Everton have been pursuing a philosophy of building a squad of the best young talent they can acquire. Bowler rejected a new contract offer from Rangers in June 2017 and Everton were encouraged to continue their pursuit.

He only signed his first professional contract in February this year and made his debut for Rangers in the 4-0 defeat at Norwich City on the final day of the Sky Bet Championship season.
He joined the west London club in 2013 after being released by Fulham.

The Blues had been tracking the 18-year-old as a prime target for David Unsworth's Under-23s set-up but were rebuffed in their attempts to sign him in a £3m deal around the end of the 2016-17 season. But The two clubs finally agreed on a package for the 18-year-old who could end up costing the Blues £4m if appearance-related clauses are triggered.

Bowler only signed his first professional contract earlier in 2017 and has made one senior appearance for QPR having made his debut as a sub on the final day of the 2016-17 season but Everton believe he has a big future ahead of him, with the initial £1.5M transfer fee postentially rising to £4.25M.
