Mina only joined Barca in January from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

Playmaker Bernard is set to be confirmed as an Everton player after undergoing a medical, whilst the Toffees are attempting to push through a double raid on Barcelona for Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

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.

Both clubs are in the market to add another centre-back to their squad before the transfer window for Premier League clubs to make signings slams shut on Thursday at 5pm.

Manchester United will get the new Premier League season under way when they host Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.

"The other big news at Everton is about Yerry Mina".

Yerry Mina is having his Everton medical in Barcelona as the club attempt to finalise a deal for the Colombia worldwide defender.

"It is one position and it is easy to understand how many we need in that position".

The Frenchman, who has also been linked with a move to Everton, impressed on loan at Stoke last season but will struggle to force his way through a queue of central defenders now he is back with the Blues.

Everton have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Kurt Zouma on loan from Chelsea for the 2018-19 season.

United would prefer a permanent deal, which Chelsea are less keen on.
