Fabrizio Romano says Everton will sign Idrissa Gueye after Amadou Onana

As soon as Everton complete the signing of Amadou Onana, the Toffees will try and finalize a deal to bring Idrissa Gueye back to Goodison Park.

That’s according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who has shared the latest on Everton’s midfield targets.

Romano reveals that Everton are now one step away from signing Onana from Lille.

The two clubs have reached an agreement for the transfer of the 20-year-old midfielder for a fee of £30.4 million plus an addition £3.4 million in potential add-ons.

Lille have also inserted a sell-on clause in the deal, which entitles them to 20 per cent of whatever fee Everton sell Onana for in the future.

Romano also reveals that the Belgian midfielder is in England already to undergo medical tests. He’s set to be tested this morning, and if everything goes to plan, an announcement shouldn’t take too long.

Everton’s plan after Onana, according to Romano, is to re-sign Gueye. The journalist reveals that it’s only a matter of time before that deal will go through as well, with PSG open to letting him go.

It’s clear that Everton have made it a priority to bolster their midfield in this summer’s transfer window.

Frank Lampard, a midfielder himself back in the day, knows how strong the middle of a team’s park needs to be to be successful, and he deserves immense praise if he gets the two deals over the line.

Onana had a fantastic campaign in Ligue 1 last season. He played 40 times in all competitions, mostly as a defensive midfielder, but the youngster is extremely versatile. He can play anywhere in central midfield as well as at centre-half, which will give Lampard a ton of options.

Gueye, on the other hand, is not a new face at all. The Senegal international spent three years as an Everton player, and fans adored him. He’s 32 now, but he could still play a part in helping the Toffees get back to a respectable position this season.
