Agent convinced Mina will pen new Everton deal

The former agent of Yerry Mina believes he's in line for a new contract at Everton.

Mina is set to enter the final year of his contract with Everton this summer after another injury plagued campaign. The defender made just 14 appearances for the Blues this season.

Questions have been raised in recent weeks about the Colombian's future at the Goodison Park club. And now Mario Mauri has offered his verdict on what his former client may do in the upcoming transfer window.

“I know him very well; we had a relationship with Jair Mina, his uncle who represented him," the agent to L'Interista.

“Since he went to Everton, he is represented by a different agency. He got on very well at the Toffees; English football suits him well.

“At Everton, he grew a lot. I think it is possible for him to be renewed, even though he always wanted to come to Italy, so I think he would evaluate any offers. But that's my opinion.

“Inter have always had an interest in Yerry in the past. I can confirm this because when I represented him, we had contacts with the Nerazzurri sporting director.

“Today, he is for Inter, absolutely. Then we have to see what Marotta thinks about it and maybe Farris, who is in charge of the defensive side and whom I know, being from Viterbo like myself. He had a good opinion of the player.

“I don't know if at this moment he is willing to leave the Premier League, where he is very well known and respected.

“There are preconditions for him to stay, if not at Everton, at any rate in England. Italy, however, has always fascinated him, that's for sure, so I see his arrival in the Belpaese as possible."
