New Blue Tarashaj checks in for a progress report.

SHANI TARASHAJ was at Everton this week to undergo fitness tests ahead of his summer move.

The Blues signed the 21-year-old forward on a four-and-a-half-year deal worth PS3m in January but loaned him straight back to Grasshopper Zurich for the rest of the season.

But Tarashaj was at Finch Farm on Monday and Tuesday for a series of tests and check-ups for Everton to ensure he will be able to hit the ground running in pre-season.

"He came across for the two days review that we have in our relationship with Grasshoppers," boss Roberto Martinez said. "We're changing a few aspects in order to reach the intensity of the league.

"It was great to see him. He's finished the service in the Army so he's got a good opportunity to start working within the parameters that he is going to need.

"The relationship with Grasshoppers is perfect. He was here Monday and Tuesday so he is going to play for Grasshopper at the weekend."

Tarashaj (below) did not train with the rest of the Everton squad.

"It was only a one-to-one, a lot of testing, a lot of looking into the nutrition, looking at the recovery tools and getting to know his body quickly and try different ways of recovering that is going to help him work within the needs of the physical standards of the Premier League," Martinez added.
