Richarlison talks up Everton targets Bernard, Yerry Mina

Everton have signed three players from Barcelona and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Everton have agreed a deal to sign Yerry Mina, the defender leaving Barcelona after an unhappy six-month spell in La Liga.

"I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me", Bernard told the club's wbesite.

The free signing of Brazilian midfielder Bernard was confirmed after a work permit was granted.

The Colombian worldwide completed a £28.5million switch from Barcelona on Thursday, having been the subject of heavy interest from Manchester United and Lyon. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

Everton's season-long loan deal for Portugal's Gomes will see them pay 2.25 million euros (RM10.6 million) and the player's wages.

The fee represents a healthy profit for the Spanish champions, who signed Mina from Palmeiras for €11.8m (£10.6m) only in January and obtained a buy-back option in the deal.

"Every discussion we've had was very important in making me feel his confidence about my game". I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team.

The Everton deals come as a frantic end to what has been a superb transfer window for the Toffees, with the club also bringing in Lucas Digne and Richarlison.

Everton coach Marco Silva finally convinced Gomes to join and he has had his medical for the Premier League side in Barcelona.
