Big-spending Everton snap up Barcelona duo

  • Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes join Everton

At worldwide 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.

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.

New Everton defender Yerry Mina says that he wants to win things with the Blues.

The Brazilian signed from Watford in a mega deal earlier this summer.

And Mina was followed to Everton by Barcelona teammate Andre Gomes, with the Catalan club confirming his move on an initial season-long loan with a fee of £2m.

Speaking on Bernard's acquisition, Silva added: "Bernard is a quick player, very good technically and he can play on the left or right wings and as an offensive midfield player behind the striker".

FC Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes have joined Everton
The English club will pay Barcelona 30.25 million euros plus 1.5 million euros in variables. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

Mina only joined Barca in January from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

Mina had always been linked with a move away from Barcelona this summer with the club's purchases of non-EU players in Malcom, Arthur and Arturo Vidal filling their quote per La Liga's rules. The 25-year-old has played 29 times for his country.

Likewise, Portuguese global Gomes has failed to establish himself as a first team regular since joining from Valencia for an initial 35 million euro fee in 2016.

Bernard, a 25-year-old capped 14 times by Brazil, was a free agent after his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk expired and said Portuguese manager Marco Silva played a big role in attracting him to the club.

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.
