Serie A side, Fiorentina, is actively pursuing the signing of defender Yerry Mina, as earlier reported exclusively by Alfredo Pedulla.
The club aims to bolster their defense, and Mina had been identified as a serious target for them.
Earlier this week, negotiations were underway between Mina’s representatives and Fiorentina as they looked to reach a definitive agreement on salary and bonuses for the player.
Having become a free agent after his contract with Everton expired in July, the 28-year-old Colombian is open to joining a new club.
Apart from his time with The Toffees, Mina previously had a stint at Barcelona during the 2017-2018 season, although he only managed six appearances.
Fiorentina sees Mina’s profile as a perfect fit for their requirements, and the player had also shown interest in the club’s pursuit of him.
The deal between the former Everton center back and Fiorentina is expected to be finalized before the end of the week, particularly as the Florence-based team prepares to compete in the Conference League this season.

Yerry Mina’s availability as a free agent has attracted the attention of Fiorentina.
The Colombian international has agreed to personal terms, including a one-year contract with a 12-month option contingent on his appearances for the club.
The final steps of the deal are being arranged, with Mina scheduled to undergo a medical examination in Rome today.
According to a recent report by popular football journalist Fabrizio Romano, he will sign the contract with Fiorentina on Friday.
With Igor’s departure to Brighton, Fiorentina is keen to swiftly secure the services of a new central defender, and Yerry Mina’s addition to the team promises a worthwhile choice and will help strengthen their backline.
