Bryan Robson made an unsuccessful bid to sign Kanchelskis for Middlesbrough when it was announced that United would be selling him, and there was also speculation that he would sign for Liverpool. In the end, Kanchelskis was sold to Everton just after the start of the 1995–96 season. The £5 million fee paid by manager Joe Royle made him Everton's biggest signing at the time.
His first season with the club saw him score 16 goals to cap a season of excellent performances which made him arguably the best right-winger in the country. He rapidly gained cult status with Everton fans especially after his two goals against rivals Liverpool at Anfield and his performances helped the club to a sixth-place finish, their best finish since 1990, though it wasn't quite enough to secure a UEFA Cup place. He also scored a hat-trick in a 5–2 win at Sheffield Wednesday in April 1996, the first Everton player to score hat-trick in any competition for over two years.
Before Kanchelskis had been able to reproduce that form in his second season he was sold midway through, joining Fiorentina for £8 million in January 1997 (ca. 15 billion Italian Lira).
