Everton seal Mina deal

Everton seal Mina deal

Everton have always been linked with a move for defender Mina but only recently have reports emerged of Gomes following the defender to Goodison Park.

The deal for the Colombia worldwide seemed to be dead in the water, but various reports in Thursday's media now claim the move could be back on.

Everton seemingly feel convinced that he is the player for them though, and with Mina undergoing a medical in front of Everton officials, it seems that Everton are finally about to land the defender they wanted all along.

Their negotiations with Barcelona, however, were proving tough and not even an appearance or two from director of football Marcel Brands was helping move the transfer along.

Everton are looking to sign Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on loan, according to the Mirror.

The centre-back remains on a long term contract at Stamford Bridge and his deal with Chelsea is due to run through until the summer of 2023. The French defender played 37 games for the Potters and him returning to the Premier League makes sense for both the club and the player.

Mina's physical presence, pace and comfort on the ball would be welcome additions to a backline that has so far flattered to deceive under Silva in pre-season.

The Toffees have added three new faces this summer as Joao Virginia, Lucas Digne and Richarlison have all arrived at Goodison Park, whilst Brazilian playmaker Bernard is on the verge of completing his move.
