Everton must replace Gueye with Barrios and Doucoure if he leaves

Everton managed to return to winning ways in the Premier League last time out as they got the better of Bournemouth at Goodison Park. 

The Toffees will be desperate to carry their momentum with them into their next game in order to ensure consistency, as this has been a real issue for them in recent times.

Interestingly, one of the Merseyside club’s star players is currently attracting interest, as according to the Daily Mail, Idrissa Gueye is attracting strong interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

Indeed, the Senegalese international has been rather impressive under the guidance of Marco Silva in the current campaign, so replacing him will be crucial if he ends up leaving this month.

With that in mind, If PSG get their man, Everton must replace Gueye with 1 of these 2 …

WILMAR BARRIOS

Wilmar Barrios was one of the stars of the Colombian national team that reached the World Cup’s last-16. It was his work-rate, tackling and intercepting ability that caught the eye, both in defensive and central areas.

The Toffees look to commit men forward and have been caught out in recent times because of it, so bringing the South American to the club would help Silva’s style of play as he can sit in front of the defence and snuff out attacks.

ABDOULAYE DOUCOURE

Abdoulaye Doucoure has made a name for himself in the Premier League at current club Watford, constantly grinding out quality performances in the middle of the park.

The Frenchman has produced three goals and five assists in the current campaign.

Indeed, the central midfielder would be an upgrade on Gueye as he has already shown that he can contribute in the final third, along with offering a great passing ability, power and more height and physicality.
