Report: 'Quality' player is now ready to take pay-cut to join Everton this summer, but there's a problem

Everton target Idrissa Gueye would be ready to take a pay-cut to join Frank Lampard’s side and leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

However, according to 90min, Everton and PSG have failed to agree a fee for Gueye.

Gueye is looking for compensation from PSG in order to make the move, but the French club have asked Everton to contribute to this, which is causing a delay.

The Senegalese international has already been frozen out by new PSG manager Christophe Galtier, alongside Leandro Paredes and West Ham target Thilo Kehrer.

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.

The report suggests Everton are still keen to bring in Gueye despite this latest hold-up, as there’s belief within the club that he will be the perfect partner for new signing Amadou Onana.

However, alternatives are already being considered if a deal for Gueye can’t be done.

Everton are still keen to strengthen in other areas.

After an injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, bringing in another forward is also on the agenda, with Southampton’s Che Adams a player they’ve reportedly made an approach for.

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.
