Everton fans love double swoop for Barcelona duo

Everton fans have been reacting to a claim that they want to sign both Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina, and they’re absolutely delighted.

According to The Telegraph, Everton now want to sign both Mina and Digne from Barcelona to reinforce their defence.

The Toffees have been eyeing a move for Mina for quite some time, and it seems they have now identified Digne as a possible replacement for Leighton Baines.

Kieran Tierney was linked with a move to become the new left back at Goodison, but Celtic’s asking price was presumably too high.

Digne is now available due to his lack of playing time at the Nou Camp, and could follow Mina to Merseyside.

The 24 year-old is a full French international, and was brought in to compete with Jordi Alba. Having been unable to dislodge the Spaniard though, he could now be on the move for around £10m.

Mina may only be allowed to leave on loan rather than permanently, but the report claims Marco Silva and Marcel Brands are “desperate” to inject some new youth and quality into the squad, and the title-winning pair would be an excellent start.

The report has also been backed up by Paul Joyce, one of the most reliable journalists when it comes to northern football.

Fans are loving the double swoop, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
