Everton keen on signing Barcelona duo

Everton have reportedly stepped up their interest in signing Barcelona defensive duo Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina.

The Toffees have been relatively quiet during the ongoing transfer window but new boss Marco Silva is expected to speed up the club's business in the coming weeks.

According to Marca, both Digne and Mina are in the club's wishlist for the summer with Silva keen on bolstering the backline ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Mina, who had a strong World Cup performance with Colombia, has been linked with a temporary move to Goodison Park with the future of Ashley Williams under question.

On the other hand, Digne has been identified as a replacement for Leighton Baines with the Frenchman eager to secure a permanent exit from the Spanish champions.

Earlier last month, Everton had been linked with a move for Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson but their interest has somewhat diminished after witnessing Mina's strong showing at the World Cup.
