Everton are hoping to complete the signing of Yerry Mina from Barcelona this summer.
The Colombian defender is not a key part of Valverde’s plans and he needs to leave in order to play regularly.
Mina managed to impress for his country in the World Cup and Marco Silva has identified him as a target. The 23-year-old scored three goals for his country in the World Cup this summer.
According to the Daily Mirror, Everton are looking to seal the transfer for a fee of around £21million.
Everton are in desperate need of a quality centre-back and Mina could prove to be a superb signing. The Colombian is a prodigious young talent and if he manages to adapt to English football, £21million will be a bargain.
The Barcelona player is expected to partner Keane at the heart of Everton’s defence next season.
The Merseyside outfit are looking to bring in a left back this summer as well. The likes of Danny Rose and Kieran Tierney have been linked with moves to Goodison Park.
