Everton spent heavily during this summer's transfer window.
During negotiations for Mina, Everton were offered Gomes on a season-long loan, the Portugal midfielder having struggled at Barcelona since his €35m (£31.5m) arrival from Valencia two years ago.
The fee could rise by 1.5 million euros (RM7.1 million), and Barcelona have inserted a buy-back clause in the player's contract.
"The manager made me feel confident about playing here". The France global, who spent last season on loan at Stoke City, had also been linked with Old Trafford but was in line to become Everton's fourth recruit of the day after paperwork was submitted moments before the 5pm deadline. 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.
"It is important that the club want to fight for something", Mina told EvertonTV.
There was a predictably frantic conclusion to the last hours of business, the Premier League waiting to register ten players after the 5pm deadline, deal sheets submitted pending medicals and the agreement of personal terms.
"I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful".
Everton kick off their new Premier League campaign with a trip to Molineux to take on Wolves tomorrow, and Silva's men will have to be at their very best, if they are to return to Merseyside with anything to show for their efforts.
