Mina was one of the stars in Russia but his Barca future is uncertain, despite only joining in January.

Wolves are keen on a season-long loan and could promise him the first-team football he craves.

‘Mr Fixit’ Mendes, who advises Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santos, is trying to strike a deal.

Mina would prefer a bigger club but Wolves have shown they mean business.

Everton and Spurs are also interested in the 23-year-old, whose 15 caps peaked with a spot of World Cup history this summer.

Mina’s stoppage-time equaliser against England in the last 16 made him the first ever defender to net in each of his first three games in football’s greatest tournament.

His climb and scoring header left Gareth Southgate‘s eventual semi-finalists only squeezing through in a shootout.

And it showcased the athleticism Mina showed alongside Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez at the heart of the Colombia defence.

That dramatic moment brought him to the attention of the world.

But Mina still seems to have been frozen out at the Nou Camp.
