Aston Villa have agreed a fee with Everton for left-back Lucas Digne worth up to £25m.
It follows several days of negotiations, in which Villa have beaten off interest from Chelsea, Newcastle and West Ham.
Digne is due in Birmingham later on Wednesday to undergo a medical.
The 28-year-old, who has three-and-a-half years remaining on his Everton contract, told the club he wants to depart Goodison Park this month.
Steven Gerrard is set to bring in his second signing as manager following the arrival of his former Liverpool team-mate Philippe Coutinho.
