The Spanish coach has just landed in Liverpool and is already planning the first signings. One of the positions in which he has influenced the most is that of central defense. Everton need an experienced player in that position, because although they have a moderate amount of technical quality, experience is not the prevailing virtue among the team’s center-backs.
Within that dispute to win a starting position at Goodison Park, the possible departure of Yerry Mina is becoming more and more echoed. The footballer has not yet completed a great season in the team and Rafa Benítez does not seem to be up to the task of giving continuity, even more so with other more reliable centrals such as Mason Holgate, Ben Godfrey or Michael Keane on the team.
The defender you like the most in the team toffee is Clement Lenglet. The French Barcelona footballer has just completed a very poor season that has allowed his high price to deflate a lot. Next season will have much fewer minutes compared to the current one, as Barça has strengthened in that position. In the event that both club and player reach an agreement, it does not seem that Barcelona is going to ask for an exorbitant amount. It may not even reach 20 million euros.
The footballer should not see the operation wrong as it is a way to reconnect with his football. At Barcelona he is totally denied and it seems very difficult for him to regain the confidence that he had left over from the first year.
