Wolves should battle Everton for Mina to play alongside Coady and Boly

Barcelona’s £32m capture of Clement Lenglet has meant that Colombian World Cup star Yerry Mina is surplus to requirements and that has attracted interest from Everton, according to the Daily Mirror.

What’s the story, then?

The Mirror claim that Barcelona have told Mina that he is surplus to requirements despite a hugely successful World Cup this summer and that the Toffees are sniffing around both he and Barcelona team-mate Lucas Digne.

They say that Mina wants to remain at the Nou Camp but is now fifth in the central defensive pecking order so he may be forced to look at offers.

They report that he does want steady gametime and Everton clearly feel that they can offer it to him.

Wolves should steal in

Mina was hugely impressive out in Russia – there weren’t too many central defenders who outperformed him – and showed pace and power that would make him a good fit for the Premier League.

While Everton need strengthening at the back, he would be an ideal fit for the back three at Wolves and alongside Conor Coady and Willy Boly, he would be perfect.

He is available and Wolves have the money to rival Everton in the market, and should jump in to try and bring him to the Midlands in a deal that would be another step in guaranteeing they secure a Top 10 finish this term.
