Report: There's optimism Idrissa Gueye will join Everton this summer

There is optimism amongst those working on a deal that Idrissa Gueye will indeed join Everton from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to a report from Foot Mercato.

PSG want to sell Gueye as he is no longer part of the plans at Parc des Princes. And it seems that he may return to familiar surroundings in this window.

Reports recently claimed that Everton were in talks to re-sign Gueye. However, Fabrizio Romano noted that PSG want the 32-year-old’s wages paid in full if he is to return to Goodison Park.

But it seems that those hurdles are well on their way to being cleared. According to Foot Mercato, the Ligue 1 champions are optimistic of reaching a deal with Everton for Gueye. The midfielder is likely to join the club permanently. And a move could be agreed this week.

Optimism Idrissa Gueye will join Everton

It definitely has the potential to be a real coup for Everton to bring Gueye back. Obviously, he is no stranger to the Toffees, having made over 100 appearances for the club before his move to France.

His form for Everton prompted PSG to part with £30 million to bring him to the French capital. And Frank Lampard will be hoping that he can rediscover that kind of form upon his return.

He has not had the best time with PSG for various reasons. But he did establish himself as one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League before leaving. Morgan Schneiderlin labelled Gueye ‘amazing‘ during their time together on Merseyside.

Everton certainly need the move to work out – if it does indeed get across the line. Their squad is still looking weak in certain areas.

The good news is that there does appear to be confidence on all sides that Everton will now sign Gueye.
