Toffees eyeing £21 million deal for Barca ace Yerry Mina

Gonzalo Higuain

Everton are eyeing up a £21 million deal for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina before the transfer window closes next month, according to The Mirror.

Colombia centre back Yerry Mina made a name for himself in this year's World Cup, scoring in three consecutive games as his team made it to the quarter finals, only to be sent home by England, of all countries, on penalties, of all things.

"His priority is to play, so if he can not do that at Barca, he will do it for another team".

The 23-year-old Colombia worldwide made just five LaLiga appearances for the Blaugrana following his €11.8 million move, with Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde leaving him behind the likes of Thomas Vermaelen, Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti in the pecking order.

"I think Yerry has to have a conversation with the coach", Abidal said to reporters.

"There were very hard moments that were very sad for me because I was really not doing well".

Meanwhile Abidal also praised Mina's performances in Russian Federation. I had no minutes, ' said Mina. But God gave me the opportunity to move forward and show what I am made of'. The left-back was left out of France's World Cup squad, but is seen as a long-term replacement for 33-year-old Leighton Baines.

Digne has asked to leave this summer, a request he looks likely to be granted, although Juventus have also been linked with the player.
