Yerry Mina will be joined by another Barcelona player in the Premier LeagueWhat's the rumour?

According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Everton have sent a loan offer to Chelsea for Zouma.

The Toffees were thought to have turned their attentions to other targets such as Chelsea's Kurt Zouma and Manchester United's Marcos Rojo as a result.

Yerry Mina is having his Everton medical in Barcelona as the club attempt to finalise a deal for the Colombia global defender. However, the Red Devils seem to have cooled their interest, preferring to focus more on the likes of Leicester City's Harry Maguire and Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld.

This dual operation increases the good relation between Barcelona and Everton, which already saw Lucas Digne move to Goodison this season.

Marcos Silva has been desperate to land a new centre-half all summer after he allowed Ramiro Funes Mori and Ashley Williams to leave permanently and on loan respectively.

He added: "Yerry Mina's a great guy".

The Brazilian was pictured at the Pall Mall Medical Centre in Liverpool and was met by an Everton representative for what is expected to be a routine examination.

The 25-year-old began his career at Benfica, with his career highlight being a European Championship win with Portugal in 2016.

They are also set to make a late move to sign Barcelona's outcast midfielder Andre Gomes.
