New boss Marco Silva wants to reinforce his backline with a move for two Barca players
Everton want to sign Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne from Barcelona this summer, according to reports.
The Toffees are looking to invest in their defence with Ashley Williams, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka all approaching their mid-thirties.
New boss Marco Silva has identified Barca duo Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne as his primary targets.
According to the Daily Mirror, getting Wayne Rooney off the transfer bill has freed up significant funds for investment.
Digne, a France international left-back, started just eight games in LaLiga last season – finishing only half of them.
At 24, he will be hoping he still has time to force his way back into Didier Deschamps’ thinking after missing the World Cup squad in Russia this summer.

England fans will be all too aware of centre back Mina, after the giant Colombia defender scored the header which sent their last-16 clash into extra time.
He only moved to Spain last summer for £10 million, so could prove to be a shrewd piece of business by the Goodison Park outfit.
