Ian Wright has been impressed by Everton singing Beto in his first couple of outings for his new club.
The 25-year-old joined the Toffees for £25 million from Italian side Udinese towards the end of the window, making an instant impact for Sean Dyche’s side.
He made his first appearance for Everton against Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup last week, changing the game and scoring one of the goals, helping Dyche’s side progress.
Beto made his Premier League debut away at Sheffield United on Saturday, but despite not scoring pundit Ian Wright was full of praise for the Portuguese forward.

Analysing his league debut on Match of the Day, the former Arsenal striker was impressed with the striker’s all-round technical ability.
“He is showing very promising signs. He’s shown aspects of everything but I’d like to see him have more chances in front of goal.

“His link-up play and physical presence give the opposition a real problem to contend with, something which Everton have lacked without [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin.
“They need someone who can hold up the ball like he does, he gets himself in great positions and can pick a pass.
“He could prove to be a very good signing if he can add goals to his all-round performances.”
