Everton must do whatever it takes to keep Idrissa Gueye away from PSG

The midfielder was subject of interest from PSG in the January transfer window.

Everton secured a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend in a much-needed win for boss Marco Silva.

It was the performance of Idrissa Gueye that caught the eye as he kept the likes of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho quiet.

In January, Sky Sports reported that Gueye had asked to leave Everton to secure a £21.5 million move to PSG.

Obviously, that never came to fruition and the Senegalese midfielder stayed at Goodison Park.

 

Since the window closed Gueye hasn’t sulked over not being allowed to join PSG. If anything his form has improved and he now looks like Everton’s most crucial player.

The 29-year-old was comfortably the Man of the Match during the win over Chelsea. According to Who Scored, he finished the game with a pass success rate of 84%, working well in tandem with Andre Gomes.

In the summer Silva will likely get to work on reshaping his squad again.

Next season’s plans must be built around the £70k-a-week man (Spotrac) and keeping him from the clutches of PSG would be the most important piece of summer business.

The Toffees need more players like Gueye and on current form, they can ill-afford to lose him.
