Everton are reportedly standing firm on the future of Idrissa Gueye this summer.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Toffees value their midfielder at E35million and it’s going to take an offer in that region to prize him away from Goodison Park.
It is understood that potential suitors Manchester United have been put off by the price tag for the 29-year-old and are unlikely to step up that interest any further.
The report further details that Everton boss Marco Silva is keen to keep the Senegal international, but the player has not given up hope of a “dream” move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Gueye, who earns £70,000-a-week (Spotrac), is one of the most consistent performers for the Merseyside club and one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League.
Everton are well within their rights to slap a £35million valuation on him, as he’s in the peak of his powers right now and still has three years left on his contract.
Gueye is easily worth £35million in the current transfer market and he’s been a star performer that has been key to Marco Silva’s team in the last year.
He can be an unsung hero at times in the centre of the park, as he goes about his defensive work and covers every blade of grass.
The enforcer would surely get more recognition if he was at a club like Manchester United, but Everton are right to avoid selling him on the cheap.
It looks like it would take a swoop from French giants PSG if anyone is to steal Gueye away from Goodison Park this summer.
