Everton: Yerry Mina eyed by Napoli -Everton Transfer Rumours

Napoli could move for Everton centre-back Yerry Mina in January, according to Il Mattino (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown

It was confirmed last week that centre-back Kostas Manolas was leaving the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona to return to Olympiacos. That leaves Napoli, who are four points off the top of Serie A, with only Kalidou Koulibaly, Amir Rrahmani and Juan Jesus available at centre-back.

Everton could already be set to lose one defensive mainstay in January in the form of Lucas Digne. According to a report from The Sunday People (via Metro), three Premier League clubs are interested in the left-back after his falling out with Rafael Benitez.

The latest

As per Il Mattino (via Sport Witness), Napoli have drawn up a list of potential replacements for Manolas, and Mina’s name is included.

Luciano Spaletti’s side are in a position to do a loan deal, having cleared the Greek defender’s €100,000-per-week salary off the books.

The verdict

Losing Mina would be a big blow to Everton. The Athletic’s Patrick Boyland has said that the Colombian has become ‘increasingly important to the side’s hopes’ of success, while ex-Toffees player Michael Ball dubbed him ‘fantastic’.

Indeed, the 27-year-old is arguably the best centre-back at the club, boasting an overall duel success of 79% this season compared to 67% for Michael Keane and 56% for Ben Godfrey and Mason Holgate.

However, even if they can ward off Napoli’s interest in January, the defender’s future at Goodison Park remains uncertain, with the end of his contract in June 2023 ticking nearer.
