Everton Complete Double Swoop for Barcelona’s Mina & Gomes

New Everton defender Yerry Mina has revealed that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing in the Premier League. A loan move for Chelsea's Kurt Zouma was also being worked on after a deal sheet was submitted to the Premier League for the defender.

Mina has signed on a permanent five-year deal worth €30million (approx £27.2million), while Portugal worldwide Gomes has arrived at Goodison on a one-season loan.

Barcelona have been trying to offload the duo all summer and it seems they will be able to succeed by the transfer window slams shut in England at 5pm.

"Everyone I have spoken to about Marco Silva has been full of praise for the new Everton manager and I think the Blues will win the division without the "Big Six" this term".

The La Liga champions confirmed in a statement: "FC Barcelona and Everton FC have reached an agreement over the transfer of the player Yerry Mina".

"The English club will pay FC Barcelona 2.25 million euros for the season-long loan and will also pay the player's wages".

Portugal global Gomes endured even greater struggles at LaLiga's champions and has found an escape route in the shape of a season-long loan at Goodison Park, which will cost the Toffees €2.25million.

Mina only joined Barca in January from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

Gomes has always been a fringe player at Barcelona, despite signing for a fee of £31m plus €20m in add-ons in 2016, with only 46 appearances made in La Liga since joining from Valencia.

Mina and Gomes join former team-mate Lucas Digne at Goodison, following his move £20m move from Barcelona earlier in the window.
