Everton could be set for a battle to keep hold of midfielder Idrissa Gueye, with PSG reportedly lining up a £30m bid.
According to the Express, the Toffees could face a bid from the French giants, who are keen on adding Gueye to their ranks ahead of the new season as they look to shore up the midfield following the departure of Adrien Rabiot.
Everton, of course, recently added another midfielder in Fabian Delph to their squad, but Marco Silva has denied that the Englishman has been brought in as a replacement for Gueye.
“They are two completely different players. Gana [Gueye] plays in one role, Fabian can do the role of Gana but he doesn’t come to our squad to replace Gana,” Silva told the Liverpool Echo.
Gueye has been superb for Everton in the last few seasons, and his combative and effective style of play in the middle of the park is backed up by his impressive 4.3 tackles per game in Premier League action last year, while he also averaged over two key interceptions per 90 minutes too (as per WhoScored).
Ultimately, Gueye has gone from strength to strength since being snapped up from Aston Villa just a few seasons ago. Back in the 2017/18 season, BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks described him as being the nearest thing to Premier League and World Cup-winning midfielder N’Golo Kante — some praise.
The 29-year-old Senegal international could now be keen on making the switch to the French giants, especially after speaking about his desire to join them back in February.
