Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye remains keen to leave Goodison Park this summer, and hopes that the arrival of Fabian Delph will help make that happen.
According to the Telegraph, Gueye still wants to join French champions Paris Saint-Germain and hopes that the mega-rich club will return with an improved bid after their January attempt to land him failed.
That approach came when the Toffees were struggling slightly under Marco Silva, but they have since improved their form and of course sourced a potential replacement in the form of Delph.
£90,000-a-week (Spotrac) Delph is a similar age and profile to Gueye, even if he is perhaps slightly less disciplined and more versatile.
It made sense for Everton to do everything they could to keep Delph during the middle of the season when finding a replacement would have been tough and rushed.
But if the player still wants to go and they can get decent money for him, now’s the time to sell, because Delph can replace the energy and experience of top flight football that would be going out the door.
Everton already have a host of central midfielders, which is blocking the path somewhat for the likes of Tom Davies, so one in one out with Delph and Gueye would be the smart way to go.
