Everton round-up: Mina report denied, Bolasie’s bad news and Lookman stays

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Mina pursuit

Everton have not agreed a fee with Barcelona for Colombian defender Yerry Mina. Despite recent reports to the contrary, Everton have not come to any agreement with the Catalan side over the centre-back just yet.

Barcelona are said to want in excess of £30 million for a deal to go through. But despite reports Everton had made a successful bid the Daily Post have confirmed today that Everton refute such claims.

They are, however, still keen on the World Cup star.

Bolasie bye-bye

The report from teamTALK suggests that Bolasie has been told he has no future at Everton under Marco Silva.

 

The DR Congo winger is wanted by former club Crystal Palace whilst some EFL clubs are keeping track of a potential loan deal.

Bolasie cost Everton a fee in the region of £25 million in August 2016 but a knee injury hampered his progress on Merseyside.

Lookman stays

Marco Silva has made it abundantly clear that Ademola Lookman is not leaving this summer.

The 20-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at RB Leipzig and the German side are said to be keen on a permanent deal for the player.

However, speaking to the Guardian, the Portuguese confirmed that Lookman will be staying.
