Some Everton fans have shared their excitement on social networking site twitter after learning the Toffees are trying to sign Yerry Mina from Barcelona.
The report claimed that Barcelona could be willing to sell the Colombian international, primarily on loan.
New manager Marco Silva is yet to bring in any player this summer. Central defence is one area where Everton are likely to invest having allowed Ramiro Funes Mori to join Villarreal.
Both Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams are approaching the fag end of their career, and Michael Keane, who joined from Burnley last summer, was hardly convincing.
The report claims that Everton have been impressed with the defender’s performance at the summer World Cup and have made the formal move.
He scored three goals in three games, including the equaliser against England on Tuesday night, and he could be a solid addition to the Everton squad.
Here are some of the best reactions from the Everton fans on Twitter.
When they said last night he has to leave Barca because of something to do wi Barca and south American contracts I wondered how long till we’re linked with him, not even 24 hours. But I’d take him in a heartbeat
