Lyon are confident of signing Everton target and Barcelona centre-half Yerry Mina.

Mina has been regularly linked with a move from the Nou Camp this summer, having struggled to establish himself in Spain since joining in January.

An impressive summer with Colombia at the World Cup has boosted his value, and Manchester United have even been linked with an interest.

But Everton seem a more likely destination, with Spanish media reporting the Toffees had agreed a €32m fee with Barcelona.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has thrown a typical spanner in the works however, claiming the 23-year-old wants to play Champions League football.

“Mina goes to Everton for 32 million euros … I do not think that information is correct,” Aulas posted on Twitter.

“Yeri [sic] is still very interested in OL. We also all hope he will be a Lyon player to play the Champions League in the Groupama Stadium.”
