Colombia defender Mina, who impressed in the World Cup, could eventually cost €31.75million, while Gomes arrives on a season-long loan.
"I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to the first three matches, because after Spurs there is an global break and I have a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare them better".
Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku made slightly early returns so could be involved on Friday, perhaps helping to boost the mood of a manager who has looked downbeat for much of the summer.
"They returned on Monday", he said.
