Wake Forest forward Cody Arnoux is set to join the American revolution at Everton.

The Premier League team was impressed by the American youngster during his trial at Everton in March. Arnoux is set to sign a contract with the Liverpool-based club, making him the second American player to join Everton this summer. Midfielder Anton Peterlin also signed earlier this month.

Regarded as a top college prospect, Arnoux passed up a chance to sign with MLS after his junior season in order to stay in school. He was projected to be a top-3 draft pick in the 2010 MLS Draft but will now join former Wake Forest strike partner Marcus Tracy in Europe. During the past two seasons, Arnoux registered 32 goals and 16 assists for the Demon Deacons.
