Report: FC Barcelona Closing In On First January Signing
La Liga giants FC Barcelona are reportedly close to securing the services of a long-term target who is expected to join the club in the January transfer window.
According to Spanish publication Sport, the Catalan giants are finally set to land the services of defender Yerry Mina.
Mina, who is a Colombia international, plies his trade with Palmeiras in Brazil's Serie A.
It has been claimed that Barca are hoping to finalise a deal as soon as Javier Mascherano's transfer to Hebei China Fortune is complete.
Mina made 22 appearances and scored five goals across all competitions as Palmeiras went on to win the league title last season.
The 23-year-old is now regular for the Colombia national team, and has made nine appearances since making his debut for the side last year.
