Introduced as a half-time substitute during Everton's 1-1 pre-season tie with Portuguese powerhouse FC Porto, Muhamed Besic gave Toffees fans hope of an exciting season as he produced a cultured range of passing, intricate work with the ball at his feet and general midfield control.
A £4 million signing from Ferencvaros, Besic is one of four signings manager Roberto Martinez has secured thus far this summer as the Bosnian 21-year-old was the second player to join in the current window, along with Gareth Barry, Romelu Lukaku and Brendan Galloway.
Against Porto, Besic demonstrated that he could be the pick of the bunch, particularly due to his modest transfer fee.
As is evidenced by the above Vine clip, Besic took three opponents out of the game with just five incredible touches of the football as he created space for himself in a congested area of the pitch, prior to completing a long-range, cross-field pass for a team-mate.
His skills even prompted former Evertonian Gary Lineker, who scored 38 goals in a single season for the club in 1985-86, to describe the magic moment as "beautiful".
