The 24-year-old Swiss international joined the Gunners in December 2002, but has found himself surplus to requirements and spent last season on loan at AC Milan.
A statement on Everton's website, www.evertonfc.com, confirmed the deal is expected to be concluded in the coming days.

"The formalities of the transfer will be finalised in the next 48 hours and Senderos will be on Merseyside on Saturday afternoon to watch his new team in action against Birmingham in the FA Cup fourth round."
Senderos was a part of the Arsenal side which won the 2005 FA Cup at the expense of Manchester United, and has 33 caps for Switzerland.
