Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers want Idrissa Gana Gueye as potential Ruben Neves replacement

The Senegal international has been in fine form for the French side this season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly looking into a move for former Everton midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye. 

That is according to a report from Le10 Sport, and a further one from the Daily Express. 

The French report suggests that Wolves are one of two English clubs interested in Gueye, should PSG decide to sell the Senegalese dynamo. 

It is claimed that Wolves fear a potential exit from star midfielder Ruben Neves and that Gueye would be seen as a perfect replacement for his services. 

The Express later picked up on the story and claim Wolves are ‘lining up a move’ for the former Toffees star.

It would certainly come as a surprise to anyone who has followed PSG this season. 

 

Gueye has had a largely impressive debut season in the French capital since joining from Everton in a reported (The Guardian) £29 million move last summer.

A man-of-the-match display against Real Madrid in the Champions League back in September in particular had tongues wagging. 

After that game, PSG captain Thiago Silva described Gueye as ‘amazing’ to RMC Sport, expressing he did ‘not have words’ for his brilliant display. 

Indeed, he has become an integral part of Thomas Tuchel’s midfield force and Wolves would surely have to spend big to bring the 30-year-old back to the Premier League. 

But there is no doubt that Gueye, who also played for Wolves’ rivals Aston Villa in the Premier League, would be an exceptional addition to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
