Striker Samuel Eto'o spent six months at Everton during the 2014/15 season.
 
The vastly-experienced Cameroonian joined on a free transfer on the eve of the campaign, having left Chelsea that summer.

In total, he made 20 appearances for the Blues but left in January 2015 to join Italian side Sampdoria for an undisclosed fee.

Joining Real Madrid's youth academy as a 16-year old in 1997, Eto'o would be loaned out to CD Leganes and Espanyol before making a name for himself at Real Mallorca.
 
An initial loan was turned into a club record signing of £4.4million and he struck over 50 goals across four seasons for the Spanish side. A late Eto'o brace secured the Copa del Rey trophy in 2003.
 
Leaving the club as their all-time leading domestic league scorer, the pacey forward signed for Barcelona in the summer of 2004 for a fee of £24million.
 
At the Camp Nou, he would go on to hit over 100 goals across four trophy-laden campaigns. A league title in his debut season was followed by the La Liga top scorer award in 2005/06 and his first Champions League medal.
 
In his last season at Barcelona, Eto'o weighed in with 36 goals, including vital strikes in the Champions League final and title run-in as the Catalans completed a historic treble.
 
He joined Inter Milan that summer and became the first player to win consecutive European continental trebles with Champions League, Serie A and Italian SuperCup successes.
 
Switching to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala in 2011, he later signed for Chelsea to work with former Inter mentor Jose Mourinho in 2013.
 
His one-year deal ran out at the end of the campaign after he netted 12 goals in 34 appearances.

On the international front, Eto'o managed 118 caps and recorded 56 goals before retiring in 2014, shortly after arriving at Goodison Park.
 
He was part of the squad that won the 2000 Olympic tournament and participated in three World Cups. He also featured in six Africa Cup of Nations, helping Cameroon to be crowned champions twice.
 
He is the most decorated African player of all time, having won the African Player of the Year award a joint-record four times, while he came third in the FIFA World Player of the Year vote in 2005.
