Yerry Mina is set to sign for Everton from Barcelona for £28.5m after the two clubs reached a deal.
The Toffees have swooped in for the defender after his talks with rivals Manchester United were called off.
Mina impressed heads at this summer’s World Cup after a disappointing season in Spain and was considered to be one of Colombia’s best players at the tournament.
The 23-year-old made just six appearances for Barça after joining from Palmeiras in January.
He looks all set to cut his time at the Nou Camp short and join Marco Silva’s Goodison Park revolution as Sport.es reports that he will sign a five-year deal with Everton.
He will be the fourth new face for the Premier League side for the new season and will renew acquaintance with former Barca team-mate Lucas Digne.
Richardson and Joao Virginia are the two other new Everton recruits.
Silva’s side start their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they travel to take on newly-promoted Wolves.
Mina’s advisor Felipe Russo looked elsewhere after asking for more and different payments from United.
United’s Matt Judge met the agent to sort out the player’s side of the deal and agreed to a five-year contract last week.
However, Russo has refused to budge on extras in the fee, including money due to him and the 23-year-old centre-back.
Russo did not meet a deadline to sign off on the deal despite warnings on Friday resulting in the termination of the deal.
