Footballers and celebrities are often spotted at the popular Mayfair eatery with the likes of Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Rio Ferdinand and Niall Horan all dining there previously.

And it is thought after his meal last night Rodriguez headed straight up to Merseyside ahead of his medical today.

The Colombian, 29, is expected to pen a three-year contract worth £4million per year at Goodison Park as he is signed by Carlo Ancelotti for a third time.

It is believed Real Madrid have accepted an offer thought to be around £22million.

Boss Zinedine Zidane was open to cashing in as Rodriguez entered the final year of his contract.

Ancelotti brought James to Real Madrid from Monaco in 2014 following his stellar World Cup campaign in Brazil.

But things did not quite work out for the playmaker as planned, despite featuring 125 times for Los Blancos.

In 2017, he joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan, reuniting with the Italian boss who was sacked just two months later.

James did return to Real Madrid last season but featured just 14 times, scoring once - his worst return since 2008/09 when he was playing for Banfield in Argentina.

Everton are also closing in on the signing of Napoli's Allan with the midfielder costing £25m.

And the Toffees look set to make it a triple header of signings with Abdoulaye Doucoure nearing a move as well.

The Watford man will travel to Liverpool today to complete a medical ahead of his £22m switch.
