A high powered Everton delegation arrived in Barcelona earlier today to finalise an agreement to sign Mina and Gomes from the Catalan giants on deadline day.

Brighton and Hove Albion secured defensive reinforcement in the shape of former Barcelona right-back Martin Montoya, who joins from Valencia on a four-year deal. The 2018 FIFA World Cup was a high point, with the player a revelation with his aerial prowess.

Barcelona have found Gomes an escape after a torrid time with them. With Manchester United backing off his chase, Mina looked set to join Everton, who have done exactly that.

He said: "I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me".

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.

Several Premier League sides including West Ham and Chelsea had been in the hunt for the Brazilian winger while AC Milan also expressed an interest.

"It's important the club want to fight for something". This is why I am here.

Barcelona should consider a way of formally honouring Everton this summer as the Premier League side have become a valued customer at the Camp Nou, sending a total of 52.6 million euros to the club in exchange for players that Ernesto Valverde was keen to offload. Six months later and after a good World Cup, they have moved him on for nearly three times what they paid for him, despite him never quite performing during his short stay.
