Report: Everton are in real danger of missing out on signing 22-year-old now
However, Camara was seen as an alternative to the Senegalese international if a deal couldn’t be done.
L’Equipe’s report suggests that Everton back-up option is now off the table, putting even more pressure on Frank Lampard’s side to get a deal done for Gueye.
Everton in danger of missing out on Camara
The Toffees pursuit of another new midfielder could end in disaster, with earlier reports suggesting there were complications in the deal to sign Gueye.
The 32-year-old is ready to take a pay-cut to return to Merseyside, but the two clubs can’t agree on who should pay a portion of the compensation that Gueye is owed.
It now appears as though Everton won’t be able to turn to their alternative solution either, with Monaco keen to bring in Camara to replace Aurelian Tchouameni, who signed for Real Madrid last month.
Frank Lampard is clearly not convinced by his current midfield options, having already spent more than £30m to secure the signing of Amadou Onana.
It’s never easy trying to balance multiple transfer targets, but Monaco nearing an agreement for Camara might force Everton’s hand.
PSG will see this as an opportunity to get their desired deal for Gueye knowing Everton have no alternative, or the Toffees will have to try and trump Monaco’s offer for the Salzburg player.
Whatever happens, Everton will want the situation resolved quickly, to avoid any new signing missing too many matches at the start of the season.
