Yerry Mina has been heavily linked with Everton but would prefer to stay at Barcelona and fight for his place at the Camp Nou.

Yerry Mina admits he has received offers but would prefer to stay at Barcelona and win over head coach Ernesto Valverde.

"I have offers but I want to succeed at Barcelona"

The Colombia international confirmed this week he had been in touch with Everton about the prospect of a transfer to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old made just five LaLiga appearances last season and only two of those ended in Barça victories, while his performance in the shock 5-4 defeat to Levante drew plenty of criticism.

Mina scored three goals for Colombia at this summer's World Cup.

Mina is determined to prove his doubters wrong but says he will make a decision on his future after his post-World Cup break.

"I have offers but I want to succeed at Barcelona," he told reporters in Colombia. "Right now, I'm enjoying my holidays and, when the time comes, I'll decide with my family what's best for everyone."

Joined Barcelona in 11.8m-euro January switch

Mina joined Barça from Palmeiras for 11.8 million euros in January, signing a five-and-a-half-year contract that includes a 100-million-euro release clause.

He scored three goals in three appearances at the World Cup for Colombia, who were knocked out on penalties by England at the last-16 stage.
