The Liverpool Echo has reported that Everton have a concrete interest in Barcelona outcast Yerry Mina in a deal that would most probably form a season-long loan.
Mina has failed to hit the ground running at Barcelona since the Colombian moved to the Spanish giants in January and due to registration restrictions, Barcelona are looking to offload the centre-half in order to register Arthur Melo for the season. Due to Barcelona reaching their limit for non-EU registered players, they would need to free up a spot for the Gremio man and Mina has been highlighted as the man to be sacrificed.
Yerry Mina signed for the Catalonians in the January of 2017/18 for a fee of around £10 million on a 5-year contract, with an £88 million release clause. Despite an excellent tournament for Colombia, (leading the South Americans to a 4th game knockout to England on penalties, scoring 3 goals in the process), Mina failed to make an impact in Barcelona, limited to 4 starts.
The Colombian should be an excellent acquisition for the Blues whether it be on a season-long loan or a permanent deal as his strength and height would consolidate the Everton defence and although Mina has not had the greatest of starts to his European career, his talents were on fine display to the world and his potential is undoubtable.
