Report: 'Quality' player is now ready to take pay-cut to join Everton this summer, but there's a problem
However, this latest development will be frustrating for all parties, as Everton wanted to have Gueye available for Saturday’s early kick-off against Aston Villa.
Gueye ready to take pay-cut to join Everton
However, alternatives are already being considered if a deal for Gueye can’t be done.
Red Bull Salzburg’s Mohamed Camara is another midfielder Everton are keen on, and the 22-year-old is keen to move on this summer.
Everton are still keen to strengthen in other areas.
Everton are having to try and balance the books this summer and be more careful with their spending, and this will be one of the key reasons why they’re taking their time over the negotiations with Gueye.
With all parties keen for a deal to be done, it feels like a matter of time until Gueye is an Everton player again, but it may now take longer than first hoped.
