Lyon confident to sign Mina despite heavy links with Everton

Yerry Mina

While reports from England claimed Yerry Mina would be completing a move to Everton on Monday, the Colombian centre-back reported back for training at FC Barcelona. It has added to speculation on Mina’s future and Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas still has confidence Mina will be joining Lyon this summer.

“I do not think [this] information is accurate,” he wrote on Twitter, in response to a report claiming the 23-year-old was set for Goodison Park. “Yerry is still very interested in OL. We all wish for him to come to Lyon to play in the Champions League at Groupama Stadium.”

Mina has been one of the hottest names on the summer transfer market after he impressed at the World Cup. It is claimed that his club FC Barcelona wants to sell the defender, eight months after the club signed him in a €16m deal from Palmeiras. Everton, Manchester United and Lyon are the names that are linked with Mina.
