The fee represents a healthy profit for the Spanish champions, who signed Mina from Palmeiras for €11.8m (£10.6m) only in January and obtained a buy-back option in the deal.

Meanwhile, Lucas Digne left Barça to sign for Everton earlier in the summer.

"For me, it was really good to speak to him because I know how good he is and I feel motivated to work with him and to play for Everton, a great club".

Barca can re-sign the defender for a cool €60m.

Barcelona pair Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes were joined by Brazil global Bernard at Goodison Park, before Marco Silva moved to quickly snap up Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan deal.

Hamas fires rockets, Israel bombs Gaza despite talk of truce
Clashes along the Gaza border since the end of March have seen at least 160 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire . It said the Palestinian resistance had fired a large number of rockets at "enemy positions in the Gaza envelope".

Colombia defender Mina, who impressed in the World Cup, could eventually cost €31.75million, while Gomes arrives on a season-long loan.

The 25-year-old had been a free agent since leaving Shakhtar Donestk at the end of last season and was inundated with offers, particularly from the Premier League. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

Several Premier League sides including West Ham and Chelsea had been in the hunt for the Brazilian winger while AC Milan also expressed an interest.

"I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful".

The Merseyside club, who appointed Portuguese manager Marco Silva during the close-season, could add a fourth deadline day signing after the Liverpool Echo reported they had submitted a deal sheet in the hope of completing paperwork for a loan for Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma. Manchester United academy graduate Michael Keane had failed to be a solution for Everton upon joining from Burnley, while Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka were clearly past their best.
