Bernard reveals why he rejected Blues for Everton

Grant SmithAug 10, 2018

Yerry Mina says he is determined "to fight for something" at Everton after completing a £27 million ($35m) move from Barcelona.

The 21-year-old scored five Premier League goals for Watford last term following a move from Fluminense, and Smith has backed the attacker to give Everton "that little spark" during the 2018-19 campaign.

Portugal midfielder Gomes joins on an initial one-year loan deal after the teams agreed a €2.25m fee.

According to the aforementioned report, two more Barcelona stars are set to join Digne at Everton as Mina and Gomes allegedly passed their medicals at a hospital in Barcelona.

The 25-year-old has played 29 times for his country.

Although Barca have included a buy-back option in the agreement, the Colombia defender departs Camp Nou just seven months after arriving from Palmeiras, having failed to dislodge Samuel Umtiti or Gerard Pique in his bid for regular minutes.

The Colombia worldwide completed a £28.5million switch from Barcelona, having been the subject of interest from Manchester United and Lyon.

Mina's stock is high after he caught the eye during the World Cup - he scored a last minute equaliser against England in the last 16 tie, one of three goals he netted in Russian Federation - and he revealed the lure of the Premier League was impossible resist.

Bernard became the Blues' first arrival, joining on a free transfer after his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk expired at the end of the previous season.

At global level, he was also part of the Brazil team who won the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and played for his country at their home World Cup in 2014.
