European giants AC Milan are reportedly ‘considering’ a move for Everton central defender Yerry Mina.
The 27-year-old ace has been absent for numerous weeks with a thigh injury but had been in exceptional form prior to the setback.
Now the Columbian has been earmarked as a potential replacement in Milan for absent Dane star Simon Kjaer.

The report claims that Stefano Pioli will be in the market for a centre-back in January and the 38-cap Columbia star is among the leading contenders.
So far this season Mina has made six Premier League appearances for the Blues.

Valued at £18million and under contract at Goodison Park until 2023 (Transfermarkt), Everton will need to make a decision on the ace’s long-term future sooner rather than later.
Whilst there is no immediate need to cash in, no new deal beyond next summer will leave the Toffees vulnerable to losing a key asset for nothing.
That said, whilst the likely lofty transfer fee would be welcomed, Rafa Benitez should be in the market for strengthening the squad in the winter market, not losing its most important players.
