Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast Dorsett explained: "This is Yerry Mina. I think he impressed everybody at the World Cup because he signed from Palmeiras for Barcelona in January for just under £10 million and he didn’t play a lot.

"Only four La Liga starts so nobody really knew that much about him."

"Then suddenly at the World Cup, three goals, he looks absolutely fantastic including that equaliser against England in injury time and he’s an absolute mountain isn’t he.

"A real physical unit, a really impressive player and we know that Wolves are into him.

"Wolves have made an enquiry to either take him on loan or a possible permanent transfer as well and we know that Everton are interested as well.

"I think that won’t be the end of it. I think Wolves and Everton might face some competition, maybe from the bigger teams in the Premier League and also in Spain as well."

"Mina himself has suggested that he might want to leave because he just wants to play football, he hasn’t had enough football.

"And he’s had that shop window if you like at the World Cup so he could well leave Barcelona.

"They want to double their money so you’re talking £20m but when you look at £50m for John Stones and Kyle Walker in the past and potentially £65n for Harry Maguire.

"I think £20m or a little bit more for Yerry Mina sounds an absolute snip doesn’t it? earlier reported that Premier League side, Liverpool are plotting a deal for Colombia defender Yerry Mina, reports suggest.

The Anfield outfit are satisfied with Mina's overall performance at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia and are set to struggle it out with Turkish side, Fenerbahce this summer.
