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.
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.
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’.
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.
