Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is supposedly a transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain.
According to a report from The Sun, the Senegalese enforcer is ‘under consideration’ from the French champions, with Frenkie de Jong, Mario Lemina and Abdoulaye Doucoure some other alternatives.
Gueye has been with Everton since 2016 following a move from relegated Aston Villa.
He has been a very successful signing for the Toffees having brought steel and energy to the midfield.
Gueye has caught the eye with his fine defensive contributions – he’s currently out in front this term for successful tackles according to official Premier League statistics with 66.
Surely Everton would not want to sell such an important player, and there’s an extra incentive for keeping hold of him.
Gueye sale = Rabiot to Liverpool?
Everton won’t want to let Gueye join PSG because he’s a huge player for them, but him leaving for the Parc des Princes could also help bitter rivals Liverpool land a potential world class player in Adrien Rabiot.
Mundo Deportivo reported last month (via The Mirror) that the Reds are keen to snap up the World Cup winner.
Rabiot is set to be sold in January because PSG don’t want to lose him for nothing at the end of the season when his contract expires.
PSG accept that he will leave and know he’ll need replacing.
Gueye would be a fanastic signing for them, but surely Everton don’t want to play a part in Liverpool landing a luxury player such as Rabiot.
The Toffees need to ensure that they aren’t tempted by any January offers. Thankfully for Evertonians, there is currently no indication the club would be open to any sale.
