West Ham have ‘expressed an interest’ in a deal for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, according to a report from Goal.

The central defender is a man in demand this summer following his recent exploits in the World Cup. Mina scored three times from set-pieces in Colombia’s campaign and was a standout performer.

Barcelona are believed to be willing to listen to offers for Mina this summer and could look to offload him, with Sevilla centre-back Clement Lenglet apparently closing in on a move to Camp Nou.

The promising defender has been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe in recent times, with Fenerbahce and Liverpool claimed to have been keen.

However, Goal report that Everton are currently at the front of the queue, with it being claimed that they are closing in on a deal worth £21 million for the defender.

West Ham appear to be on the lookout for a new centre-back despite their earlier signing of Issa Diop for a club-record fee. Jamaal Lascelles, Marcelo and now Mina have been linked with moves to the London Stadium this week.
