Everton have now received a major boost in the transfer window – after the move gave the Toffees the edge over other clubs trying to sign him.

Sean Dyche’s side could look very different in 2024/25 with Dominic Calvert-Lewin closing in on a move to Newcastle while there are doubts over whether Amadou Onana will stay at Goodison Park.

But Everton fans have now been given a welcome distraction from those two situations, with the player being compared to Sadio Mane telling his club he wants to join the Toffees…

Yankuba Minteh wants to sign for Everton

Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that Yankuba Minteh wants to join Everton – and has already told Newcastle of his decision.

A reliable Italian journalist wrote on X: “Yankuba Minteh who favors Everton as his preferred destination with a desire to play in the Premier League. Newcastle are informed of his priority to join Everton. Olympique Lyon are interested as this weekend contacted Minteh, which was revealed yesterday.”

Newcastle value the Gambian international at £40m following his impressive 2023/24 campaign on loan at Feyenoord, where he scored 11 goals and provided six assists in 37 appearances.

Minteh himself is said to be surprised by Newcastle’s decision to sell him, but he still wants to play in the Premier League and is excited about the prospect of playing for Everton.

Kevin Thelwell, director of football at Goodison Park, was also said to have personally pushed for the signing of the 19-year-old.

Kola can land the new Sadio Mane

Minteh is still something of an unknown in English football, so Everton fans might appreciate a comparison with a more famous player to better understand his style of play.

Interestingly, a scouting site called Serbian Football Scout has told the teenager that he can reach “Sadio Mane levels” and there are certainly similarities between the two.

Firstly, Minteh is a similarly explosive player to the Senegalese international and can beat defenders early on – he is also a prolific dribbler like Mane, averaging 2.2 successful dribbles per game last season in the Eredivisie, while his ability closings are just as important. .

The Liverpool Echo have also compared the Bakoteh-born prodigy to Mane, with Everton’s Merseyside rivals Liverpool also said to be keen on signing him.

Keep an eye on this situation as Everton are in an extremely good position to sign Minteh – as it appears…
