Yerry Mina set for Everton medical on deadline day

Closing in on a deal

Barcelona defender Yerry Mina is reportedly set to have his medical at Everton on transfer deadline day tomorrow as the club look to get a deal done.

The Toffees have been looking to complete a deal for Mina for some time now, with rumours starting back in the middle of July. 

Since then, there has been very little traction on the deal, with reports of back and forth dialogue and several bids but nothing really coming from it.

Now, with the Premier League transfer window set to close at 5pm on Thursday, things are really starting to heat up now.

Despite being linked with Manchester United also, it’s now possible that Mina has chosen to join Everton.

Medical stage

That is because there are suggestions from an Italian journalist who claims a deal is now done and the player will fly in for his medical tomorrow.

That will certainly be cutting it fine but as long as they get a deal over the line, it will not matter too much.

The legitimacy of these claims are still to be debated, however, with an Italian journalist claiming this and not the English press or Catalan press.

If a deal is done, we are likely to hear from more authoritative sources over the coming hours and in the early hours of Thursday.

Andre Gomes could be set for move to Everton before transfer deadline

Yerry Mina might not be the only Barcelona player moving to Everton before tomorrow’s deadline.

That is because the club are also targeting midfielder Andre Gomes.

Should the Toffees sign Gomes as well as Mina and Lucas Digne, they would certainly have a Barcelona core in their side.
