Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes are available to make their Everton Premier League debuts against Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Deadline Day signings are yet to feature for Marco Silva's side after arriving at Goodison Park from Barcelona with injuries but Sky Sports News understands they could play in the fixture, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
Mina arrived with a foot injury, sustained playing for Colombia at the World Cup, and his recovery was delayed by a knock in training while Gomes picked up a hamstring injury during Barcelona's pre-season tour of the United States.
Silva suggested the pair should be in contention for selection after the latest round of international fixtures, which appears more likely after they played in a behind-closed-doors friendly on October 11.
"Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes are okay," Silva said before their match against Leicester earlier this month.
"Gomes trained this week and is progressing as well as we hoped. They will both be available for the match against Crystal Palace after the next (international) break."
James McCarthy is also nearing a return to first-team football, 10 months after suffering a double leg break against West Brom.
The Republic of Ireland midfielder featured in the same game along with club captain Phil Jagielka, who is also ready to return.
