But Barcelona's asking price at €35 million seems to have driven away most of Mina's suitors with even Manchester United and their overflowing cash reserves, chasing after a more Premier League proved player in Toby Alderweireld.
Yerry Mina, alongside the rest of the World Cup stars who were given extended time off due to their involvement at the tournament, returned to the Ciudad Deportiva de Sant Joan Despí this morning.
There has also been speculation that Manchester United are interested, although this hasn't been confirmed by either club.
With the two clubs, having agreed a deal, it remains for Everton and the player to agree on personal terms and a medical to follow.
The Toffees have clinched the signings of Richarlison from Watford and Lucas Digne from Barcelona - while Yerry Mina is expected to become the third new addition.
To sign Mina, they will face competition from Everton, as well as a host of other clubs.
Mina, 23, has been made available for transfer by the Catalans after struggling to carve out a first-team place following a move from Palmeiras in January.
The defender was thought to be hot property after a strong showing at the World Cup that included 3 goals in 4 games. After all, the player is young and still has a lot of potential.
