Mina has made a real name for himself during the World Cup, scoring three important goals in Colombia's campaign before they crashed out on penalties against Gareth Southgate's England side. The former Palmeiras prodigy will be eager not to be stuck on the bench with Barça next season, and is likely to move to a new side if the Catalan giants can't offer regular football.

Standing at 6ft 5', Mina is a force to be contended with on the field, and could offer the Toffees a real threat in the air at set-pieces. His towering header against England, in the dying seconds of stoppage time, showed his ability to produce a moment of magic under high levels of pressure, and his robust approach to defending could prove effective in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, former Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has claimed that Toffees stopper Jordan Pickford could prove to be England's weak link in their quest to win the World Cup. The veteran manager contended that Pickford's lack of international experience and physical dominance in the goal make it harder for England to be world champions this summer.
