The Blues have reportedly bid £27m for Mina but the player has been holding out for offers from teams playing European football.
Lyon and Manchester United are said to be seriously interested, although there has been a suspicion of flame-stoking by his agent so it's hard to know just how serious those two clubs are.
Some outlets have claimed that Barcelona have come to an agreement with all three clubs while others say the Spanish club are now demanding as much as €40m.
The Liverpool Echo report that Marco Silva and Marcel Brands could end their interest in Mina rather than let a protracted battle for his signature leave no room to draft in alternatives before the transfer deadline in six days' time.

I dont want to hear ‘well he doesnt love us ‘hes not a proper Blue
Its nonsense and there can be no room for sentiment in Football.
Kanchelsksis came for the money. He was world class and we loved him.
Lukaku came for the money and the stepping stone move. He was world class and we loved him.
Bottom line is, forget if the player truly has his heart on being an Evertonian. Lets get him in and enjoy his best years.
You never know, the failing with the other 2 players is that we never created a team good enough to keep them.
Do this with Mina and he stays with us for ten years
4 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:06:50
Surprised the sale of Funes Mori has been ignored, once fit that guy was a decent option already on the books to be the steel to Holgates silk.
Keane and Jagielka are putrid, lets be frank.
5 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:10:33
Lukaku: is world class and ‘we shouldve loved him. I did.
In modern terms he is world class. Hes got
40 international goals at the age of 25.
He gurantees goals.
Blues derided him for his apparent lack of effort and chasing lost causes. Not for me, Jeff. Give me one Lukaku over 20 Denis Stracquilursis or Andy Johnsons any day of the week.
Put him one on one against a defender and he is simply devastating and one of the best Ive ever seen. Hes like Jona Lomu with football boots on and a superb finisher

We should have learnt lessons from last year that we can't hold off for our number 1 target Giroud/ Mina and risk getting no-one. Our centre backs are that bad that nearly any of the centre backs being banded about would improve us so we should sign one/ two even to do a job for a couple of years to improve us until we can find a top replacement in one of the next windows. Jonny Evans for 3 mill or Mawson or Gibson for 15 mill would have been a cheapish good solid option in my opinion. Instead we are possibly holding out to pay 30+ on a South American like Mina or Rojo who will cost a fortune on wages and don't sound like they want to come with other teams interested..
8 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:13:47
We would effectively be creating a slot at Manure for him, and paying them to get him for nothing.
9 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:17:04
Meanwhile Fulham have done a 2 year deal for Schurrle for sweet FA and Max Meyer has gone to Palace for the same amount
10 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:20:04
Signing rejects from the top 6 is not going to take this club forward.
11 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:24:32
We should have a shortlist including Mina, Lascelles, Zouma and Rojo and Gibson, ones we could get and are realistic.
12 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:28:43
Reads to me like negotiations are moving right along and we're getting close.
Especially considering a simple given; ManU haven't moved out anyone important plays the same position. They don't need him.
Mina, his agent, and Everton all are looking for the right deal.
13 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:29:33
14 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:37:30
As for Mina. We need a good signing. I can wait 12 months for a great signing. We just need to fill some gaps now and reclaim 7th. Next season we can make a serious attempt to get to 6th.
15 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:52:31
I don't really blame him for holding out for the best offer... but maybe he should take some inspiration from his old teammate Digne, who seems to have embraced the idea that sometimes it's better to be an integral part of a club that's trying to build something, as opposed to toiling away on the bench for a Champion's League side b/c it stokes your ego.
16 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:58:57
17 Posted 03/08/2018 at 22:59:06
It would be foolish in the extreme if we didnt shift our focus and get the best achievable centre back in now, time is running out and this is the most important signing this window. Jags is 37? Williams and Funes have departed.
We need a top class CB in and it cannot be left to chance.
No more deadline day gambling on critical signings.
Forget about Mina, if he still available at 9pm on Thursday take him on loan.

Lets not be waiting at the last minute for someone to make a decision, they either want to come or they don't. We have a long rebuilding process that may take a couple more transfer windows, so lets go for players who want to come to Everton.
21 Posted 03/08/2018 at 23:15:02
Agree, Gibson is not good enough for us and is not the player we need. We can and must do better.
22 Posted 03/08/2018 at 23:34:04
There seems to be interest in Pickford, who I am not sure about, so should we work the market and sell Jordan, to Chelsea who look like losing Cortouis and pick one of the displaced Burnley keepers, raising a few quid on the way??
23 Posted 03/08/2018 at 23:51:20
There was a quote from his Uncle/agent today stating that they want Barcelona to enter into discussions with us.
This one may go to the wire. No way will Mourinho be seriously interested. It's all a bluff to get Levy to lower his value of Alderweireld.
I still think we should be seriously looking elsewhere as Barcelona are taking the piss with their valuation. One good World Cup does not turn an £11 million misfit in January into a £35 million player in August.
24 Posted 03/08/2018 at 23:58:35
25 Posted 03/08/2018 at 00:01:42
Burnley are looking to buy Hart due to the fact that they have lost their top 2 keepers to injury and were about to start the season with only their 3rd choice available.
They even asked for special dispensation to loan a keeper the other week due to only having an inexperienced keeper left.
26 Posted 03/08/2018 at 00:11:47
We've got 4 central defenders. Holgate, Jags, Keane and Digne.
"Digne is a fullback"
So too were Holgate and Stones.
27 Posted 04/08/2018 at 00:36:37
I've always been against signing a player because they had a good World Cup or Euro; move along nothing to see here.
28 Posted 04/08/2018 at 00:58:37
Perhaps if the Mina deal does fall through we should be looking in Germany - they grow them big and tough there.

Mina flatters to deceive. He's very good going forward and scores goals but is this all we want from a central defender?
He defends like a baby giraffe, going in for dangerous tackles and for a big man, falls to the floor way to easily. The sheer speed of the Premiership will expose him.
We need to stabilize our defence. A Jaap Stam or Nemanja Vidic type defender may not get you many goals but he will give Pickford an easier shift.
If a goalscoring defender who takes unnecessary risks and loses the ball is what we are after, why let Funes Mori go?
8 days left. I hope we sign a solid bastard!
36 Posted 04/08/2018 at 06:30:11
37 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:32:53
We did this last year, hanging on for weeks to see if Giroud's Mrs could be persuaded to move to the area; we ended up with nobody.
Alfie Mawson and Johnny Evans are both better than this guy and would have been a massive improvement on Jagielka and Williams. You could have picked both of them up for little over £20M.
38 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:35:29
I didnt know that. Lascelles is a good defender who can chip in with a few goals from set pieces and sounds like a natural leader. Something we are desperate for. I think he would be a great addition to the team and possibly achievable.
The sticking point will be the fee, he will be ridiculously overpriced. Newcastle wont want to be left high and dry on the deadline day so it will have to happen soon.
39 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:42:38
In truth, he has gone largely under my radar (except for a few highlights) but this is the sort of character we are screaming out for.
40 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:48:49
Not convinced on Mina, not at all. We can get better, I hope.
41 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:51:20
Lascelles looks the best of the options to me. Christopher Jullien from Toulouse is an interesting pick too, very strong in air and no slouch. Id have a good crack at Lindelof too. Upemecano at Leipzig looks a cracking young defender. Wallace at Lazio is quick and strong. Jack OConnell was one of the best CB in the Championship last season and would be a cheaper option.
There are a few decent CBs out there we could go for but will be tricky at this junction.
Having said that I think well get Mina. Alderweireld is Uniteds top target and likely theyll get him in the end which means Mina will come to us as we are best remaining offer in PL. Not sure if thats a good thing.
42 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:51:45
That may be the case, that you don't get bought by Barcelona by accident.
Does that extend as far as Mina playing 6 games for them (4 starts) after they signed him this January, and his price tripling?
Seriously, 10M in January, 6 appearances, and now it's 30M?
43 Posted 04/08/2018 at 07:53:03
44 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:03:11
Lescott, came from the Championship, as did the fella Burnley bought to replace Keane. Same with most peoples first choice Lascelles, and if its true that Brands, has got extensive knowledge of South Americans, I also hope hes got somebody who is good at his job, looking at Englands second tier?
45 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:09:13
It is starting to look like we are waiting for Man Utd to act, if they sign Alderweireld, we may get Mina thats if he doesnt then choose Lyonnaise . Alternatively,one of Man Utds (overpaid deadwood, unwanted, quality backup players) you choose the adjectives. Can you believe we are doing that again !
Its a dangerous game we are playing with 5 days left, I just hope all our eggs are not in the one basket. Remember, teams will not want to sell their important defenders without having time to replace them.
Time is of the essence.
46 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:10:07
With less than a week to go of the transfer window does anyone really think Newcastle are going to sell us Lascelles?
Does anyone think that clubs (unless they receive an astronomical offer) are going to sell their defender this late in the window?
Thats why the likes of Mina is being pursued, because hes not a Barcelona first choice.
Zouma on loan might be a realistic option but again why are we waiting so long?
47 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:14:24
Man Utd are on the same rocky road, helped by Jose the obnoxious. The main component of this is the defence, which under Moyes was given an importance that was stifling on any ultimate achievement. It still dominates today, though it is two yards shorter in pace.
There are a few honest players at Everton who try their best, but every time they walk into the dressing room, they are able to look round knowingly at the cheats on good contracts who are just seeing them out. It is written that there is no chance of Everton being a top 4 side. Eaman Dunphy at the end of his career played for a Fourth Division Club and described such a dressing room. Hopfully Brands and Silva can sort the dressing room out. Mina would not be a good addition to the dressing room.
For many ToffeeWeb contributors this is hard to believe, but in reality Football Clubs also conform to the norms of life,
48 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:18:51
They paid a small fee, took a gamble and well, now theyll reap the rewards.
Leave him there and get the barcode fella.
Plus Sam Hoare said so, and if its good enough for Sam, its good enough for me!
Ps, Sam, just how much togger do you watch lad???????
Onto the Grassy knoll for me!
49 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:23:07
Always risky bringing a player at centre back who is new to the prem as there is no hiding place, and they will be in for a shock.
I still think that Gibson is worth a punt having played in the prem.
Boro's defence was mean but they could not score enough to survive. So his experience should not be under estimated
Of course Lascelles is quality but it could come at an alarming transfer fee.
50 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:36:07
This is what has been wrong with Everton for years, remember Jagielka, telling everyone what Twatkinson said to him after we had just conceded because of really poor officiating, in the semi-final at the ethiad?
Just a really poor acceptance, because Im sure someone like Andy Grey, or Peter Reid, would have strangled the ref, and then kicked down Martinez office door the next morning to ask why he had just made such a ridiculous substitution, which probably cost us a trip to Wembley?
51 Posted 04/08/2018 at 08:39:21
52 Posted 04/08/2018 at 09:00:51
53 Posted 04/08/2018 at 09:29:25
In the short time Brands and Silva have been with us it appears that they know what they're doing so this is one of those situations where we're going to give them a chance and hold off on the histrionics just for now.
No matter how good M&M are though they can only buy players who clubs are willing to sell!

56 Posted 04/08/2018 at 09:42:54
Then again, I'm half-Swedish so have some national bias. But Everton and Swedish players have done OK (Limpar springs to mind immediately, Linderoth was also badly underrated while he was here)
57 Posted 04/08/2018 at 09:56:30
Like everyone else on here, I have no idea what the situation is with Mina but if it is as it seems, I personally would move on and urgently test Brian's point in relation to Zouma and Lascelles.
58 Posted 04/08/2018 at 09:58:53
Oh for a Peter Reid or an Andy Gray type in the Everton Squad, but they would have had difficulty in this Everton Squad such is the depth of apathy amongst certain players and their backroom chums. Mr Bill doesn't help either.
The closest we got to the attitude of Reid and a Gray was Lennon and Niasse. Moyes's 11-year reign should have ended after three years at most. They all have been on a nice little earner for years and are still in the Premier League and are over this past 3 years had their ranks bolstered by the worse transfer policy in the Premier League. Anyone good we got was by luck.
The sickening thing is that we are 6 days before the end of the transfer window with a hole in the centre of the defence that has been as wide as the Mersey for this past five years and was inconsistent before that. The problem must be deeply ingrained to have such a negative influence on such a glaringly obvious need for change over so many seasons.
You would think that players transferred in, are done so on the bases of not competing with those already in place. Mina and Rojo are similar non-competitive additions, with suspect attitudes.
59 Posted 04/08/2018 at 10:10:18
Lucas Digne made the point about Everton being interested in him for 2 months before it happened and the likelihood of us only looking at Mina are very slim in my view.
Yes Brands went over there which shows we were interested, but remember he also went to sign Digne and that happened - they know they need a centre half as much as we do, and the fact that Williams has been allowed to leave further fuels the belief that we will sign a central defender.
Clearly we made a bid for Mina but you can't force any move even if the clubs agree a fee, it's still up to the player to make his choice of club and Mina is doing what anyone would do in holding out to see if Utd et al make actual bids for his services.
We'll sign someone, even if it takes until deadline day and again that isn't Everton's fault, it's just the way the market works.

I do actually have an appointment to have my haircut then but I suppose I could rearrange it if I'm in Marco's plans.
It's not the same hairdresser as young Tom uses as there's a waiting list of four months to get in there btw.
Martin (#57). I'd test my point too with Lascelles.
62 Posted 04/08/2018 at 10:57:19
63 Posted 04/08/2018 at 11:13:53
64 Posted 04/08/2018 at 11:19:07
My sentiments too, he is 24, 6ft3, experience in the Premier League. He could actually be a better bet than Mina. He is the type of player who could improve with us and he needs stability for his talent to flourish.
He could be a very decent alternative to Mina or Lascelles. Along with, he may actually want to come and not carry a too prohibitive fee.
65 Posted 04/08/2018 at 11:44:22
Love to see a world class striker aswell.. we still havent replaced lukaku
66 Posted 04/08/2018 at 12:01:53
67 Posted 04/08/2018 at 12:24:05
Some mention of Zouma. A much better bet. Wants first team football and doesn't have pretentions. A solid defender. A decent bid would test Chelsea resolve.
68 Posted 04/08/2018 at 12:32:23
In Minas case, however, weve had an offer on the table for a number of weeks and its clear hes holding out for a better offer so screw him. Weve been burned before by players that didnt really fancy playing for us. Its a buyers market and there are other options out there so lets go and secure one of them instead.
69 Posted 04/08/2018 at 12:49:34
One of our many problems is that the midfield don't protect the defence enough.
I would prioritise an up and down midfielder like a Drinkwater and another hardworking wide player.
I certainly wouldn't be panicked into buying a CB who is unproven in the prem.
70 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:08:35
71 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:08:56
72 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:11:47
There's a story going round about some player being "denied" his number when in actual fact the player requested the change to commemorate the birth of his twin children.
I think it's Zouma? I'd not get my hopes up to sign him. We'll either sign Mina - and we should cut the cord - or this kid from Newcastle.
Or some third CB none of us thought of who'd been talked to behind the scenes.
Either way, as James "Deputy" Marshall points out, M&M know we need a CB.
73 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:13:11
Fuck off is Mina worth this hassle, hurry up and buy someone, I remember when Kalidou Koulibaly was linked, that's the sort of CB we need.
74 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:14:49
I thought we all agreed during the World Cup, Lukaku is the best striker in the world, no?
75 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:20:37
I'd take Zouma over Keane, but we still need a left sided centre half. I guess it's Gibson or Rojo - and I ain't keen on either.
76 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:22:19
77 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:25:30
Brian he's a fucking beast but yeah the dollars have gone up since we and the chavs first inquired. Great player man.

79 Posted 04/08/2018 at 13:30:03

What to say?
83 Posted 04/08/2018 at 14:11:29
Maybe a 5 year lay away plan, haha.
Seriously though, Darren is right. We need to be looking for this type of defender. There's got to be another beast out there somewhere. Mina for me is over-priced, over-hyped and over-rated.
Barcelona are just waiting for a mug of a club to pay for a player they deem surplus to requirements.
84 Posted 04/08/2018 at 14:16:44
Everyone has their own favourites Jamie, but I thought Uruguay lost their chance when Carvarni got injured, and always wonder how good Lukaku could become if he had a quarter of Edsons Desire?
85 Posted 04/08/2018 at 14:24:00
86 Posted 04/08/2018 at 15:35:38
Make no mistakes were currently up the creek when it comes to CBS. Jags, Keane and Holgate! The smallest CB line up in the league, one 36, one too inexperienced and one whos confidence is shot and has the turning circle of a tanker.
Getting concerned to say the least.
87 Posted 04/08/2018 at 15:39:33
88 Posted 04/08/2018 at 17:43:16
Youre an idiot. And exactly the kind of supporter that settles for the constant mediocrity our board dishes up.
I sat amongst blue who booed Lukaku and Barkley.
If you want to judge whether Lukaku is a world class striker. Think of this. Lukaku plays for 1 of the top 5 clubs that arguably, have ever existed in association football. He is their starting striker. He has scored 25 or more goals for each of his last 3 seasons.
He has scored 40 the international yoals at the age of 25. For one of the top 5 nations in the world.
He didnt run his guts out for the shirt. He didnt sweat blood. He didnt put everything into a performance. But he was a world class striker for us and continues to be. But youre a ‘proper blue and you only like players who just love playing for da bluez. Just a top scouser. Well youre living in the past mate.
Graeme Sharp was a bog standard 15 goals a season kind of striker. Scotland wouldnt even give him a game. And hes a hero to us. Yes hes our post war all time top goal scorer but he wasnt even that good. But he threw his guts into every performance.
Im sick of it. The RS were equal to us in about 2010. They really where. And now theyre light years away from us because they had a big club mentality but you get Darren and the likes bringing us down constantly. Lukaku is the best striker weve had since Lineker. Fact. Prior to that it was Latchford. Proper to that it was Dean. Its simple. Remove sentiment you idiot
Everton have only had Lukaku, Yakubu, Beardsley and Lineker get 20+ goals in the last 32 years.
89 Posted 04/08/2018 at 19:14:08
90 Posted 04/08/2018 at 19:40:18
As has been mentioned, unless possible target negotiations are at an advanced stage, there is very little time left, to get any over the line.
91 Posted 04/08/2018 at 20:14:25
If Kurt Zouma is available at 13 million then we should snatch their hands off. Chelsea don't want Zouma & at 23 years old & 6 foot 3 is worth a punt.
92 Posted 04/08/2018 at 20:58:25
"Chelsea don't want Zouma"
Before loaning out to Stoke last season, they signed him on a new long term 6 year contract. They have senior players ahead of him in the squad at the moment, but he's highly regarded by both their fans and club. In fact alot of their fans want him in now as they think he's better than who's been playing for them recently.
I definitely rate him though and think he'd be a great signing for us, he's got some great attributes:
He's at an age were he can still improve and at 6ft 2, would improve our defending of corners and crosses.
He's already premier league ready, and his current valuation is about £15 million. I don't think Chelsea would let him go for that, but if we are willing to pay up to £25-30 million for Mina, then we have some wiggle room to test their resolve.
Either that or if they definitely don't want to sell but don't think he's ready for them yet, see if we can get him on loan for a season and try and get someone else in on a permanent:
- Matthias Ginter, 24 yo, 6ft 2, valued at £25 million
- Wesley Hoedt, 24 yo, 6ft 3, valued at £15 million
- Ramy Bensebaini, 23 yo, 6ft 1, valued at £7.2 million
- Samir Caetano, 23 yo, 6ft 2, valued at £5.5 million

95 Posted 05/08/2018 at 01:53:20
Sharp scored over 20 goals in 1986 and was a very good player for us. He helped the club win 2 league titles, 1 FA Cup, 1 European Cup Winners Cup and played in 3 other FA Cup Finals.
World class players like Southall, Rush, Robson and Lineker all rated him highly.
96 Posted 05/08/2018 at 03:49:06
That ones up with the best of them.
He scored goals on a consistent basis for years. His contribution to Everton and his team mates year after year cant just be measure by his goals (but it could be). He brought out the best of all around him. He struggles with the word ‘definitely in commentary but apart from that... he wasnt that good. Tears form in my eyes thinking about that mid 80s team; were any of them that good. Or is that we are that bad now that they seem that good...
Maybe angel delight isnt that good either.
Polish girls arent that good.
Guineas isnt that good.
My Gibson hummingbird isnt that good.
Maybe the Beatles arent that good.
Pet Sounds wasnt that good.
But Graeme Sharp WAS that good. (Ffs)
97 Posted 05/08/2018 at 04:08:12
Comparing a Gibson Hummingbird to Sharpy!!!!!!!!
Tell you what though, i'd never swap all the Hummingbirds, Les Paul's and Stratocasters in the world for that derby goal at Anfield.

I'd take rumours with a pinch of salt buddy, until you see a breaking news, CLUB NAME has agreed to sign PLAYER NAME for PRICE from CLUB NAME, player is on his way for medical.
Here's just an example you mentioned that one paper source has quoted that a deal is almost done.
Here's another quote from another newspaper today:
"Jose Mourinho is in panic mode five days before the transfer window closes after Manchester United's £35m deal for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina collapsed."

Can you forward that list to M&M, they're all good shouts. More the type of signing I was hoping for when Brands came on board.

Seriously though I just done a simple search on Google for the top 10 over 6ft 1 centre backs under 25, and found this link below:
I then looked at videos of the players, and found another useful site which showed player attributes, and whittled it down to availability and price.
It took me about 45 minutes, I was really bored at the time lol.

Whoever comes in needs to be left sided,we are so unbalanced in the centre of defence, with a constant stream of right-footed partnerships; Williams, Jagielka, Holgate, and Keane all right-footed.
We have sold Funes Mori who is left-footed so that ship has sailed. I was no fan of his though and feel Rojo is of the same ilk. We need a decent left-sided centre-back, a new version of Joleon Lescott.

Whether the signing he makes over the next few days is right for the job of saving our season (even before it's opened!) is a different matter as some of the names being mentioned here would hardly be an improvement. But that signing must be made!
So busy has Brands been in finding openings for those of our players deemed surplus to requirements that I don't think we have seen too much of his powers as a recruiter. We may have to make that allowance if what he comes up with in this window is decidedly underwhelming!

Sam @ #41' should send his list to Brands as well.

Just a guess. Although Mina-Sanchez have a good understanding, Spurs under Poch, as far as I can see, do not buy bench warmers from other clubs.

Also PSG are now in for Rojo.
It's going to be an interesting week.

Pallister and Bruce
Henry and Berg / May
Adams and Bould / Keown
Terry and Cahill
All of them right footed.
I could go on with the list but the point is clear. Whilst it's a nice luxury to have the right foot left foot combination it is not as important as some people on here seem to think
114 Posted 05/08/2018 at 18:14:47
Let's put it this way, if we don't get at least a capable CB, if that was all we were to get, I envisage a struggle for most of the season.
