Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in the signing of current Everton loanee Djibril Sidibe, according to reports.
Foot Mercato is claiming that PSG are on the hunt for a new right-back this summer, after Thomas Meunier left the club on a free transfer to join Borussia Dortmund.
The report claims that Sidibe has been presented to PSG sporting director Leonardo as a potential transfer option this summer. No discussion has yet begun between PSG and Sidibe’s current parent club Monaco with a fee of €15 million (£13.5m) reportedly a likely asking price.
Everton have an option to buy clause in Sidibe’s loan deal, which is reportedly (Liverpool Echo) set at a fee in the region of £12.7 million.
However, a report from L’Equipe is suggesting that Everton are hopeful of agreeing a new 12-month loan spell with the French side, with the player keen on sticking around on Merseyside.
Sidibe told RMC Sport in March that Carlo Ancelotti has ‘faith’ in him and that ‘everything is green lit’ for a permanent Everton switch.
Monaco would undoubtedly want to cash in on Sidibe this summer, considering the current global health crisis and the impact on finances.
Everton, meanwhile, already have Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny as options at right-back so might be willing to let Sidibe move on this summer.
With a potential move to PSG on the cards, Sidibe might be difficult for Everton to keep hold regardless.
