Earlier today we covered claims from Germany that Jean-Philippe Gbamin has ‘almost reached an agreement’ to sign for Everton this summer.
The Mainz player is seen as a replacement for Idrissa Gana Gueye, and it’s not the first time the Merseyside club have been linked.
Mainz are said to be looking for €35m for Gbamin but Everton are looking to push that price down, although it’s a fee they’ll be able to cover given the €30m they’ll be getting for Gueye when that move goes through.
A transfer looked very possible, and now it does even more so.
Le Parisien estimate a fee at €25-30m, and given they’ve been speaking to the agent there’s a reasonable chance that’s where their figure has come from.
Their interest is due to Gueye, and it’s stated that a financial agreement with Everton isn’t in doubt and the figure is put at €32.5m. A source close to the transfer has told Le Parisien that a salary agreement has been reached, but no medical has yet been scheduled for the Everton player.
