The chairmen of the two clubs Simon Jordan and Bill Kenwright have finally agreed on a fee for the 25-year-old.
Johnson is currently on stand-by for England's World Cup squad and is training with Sven-Goran Eriksson's men ahead of the departure for Germany on June 5th.
Goodison Park is his preferred destination and maybe he is relieved that David Moyes has been given the green light to match the bids of North-West Premiership rivals Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers.
The forward, who has scored 70 goals in his last three season - including 21 in his only season in the Premiership - has already met Wigan boss Paul Jewell on Friday morning with Bolton manager Sam Allardyce waiting for talks themselves.
His potential strike partner James Beattie is a close friend - he was at Beattie's wedding last week - and that would be a dream partnership for Blues fans.
