Earlier on Thursday, we covered Le10 Sport’s article regarding Paris Saint-Germain’s continuous interest in Everton’s Idrissa Gueye.
Much like previous claims, the general consensus was that the Toffees were digging their heels regarding the asking price, refusing to lower their demands to try and help the Ligue 1 champions.
Paris Saint-Germain don’t want to pay more than €30m, and that’s been corroborated pretty much everywhere, including Foot Mercato, who also explain the first meeting between Antero Henrique and Marcel Brands didn’t go particularly well.
Furthermore, they add that down the player’s end, Gueye and his entourage are ‘pushing’ for a transfer to the France capital, inciting the Ligue 1 side to prepare another attempt ‘quickly’ in order to try and get a deal over the line.
Desperately needing a defensive midfielder, the French club are also looking at Julian Weigl, who knows Thomas Tuchel well, but Borussia Dortmund are, much like Everton, proving very stubborn.
If Paris Saint-Germain want their number six, they’ll have to pay up, but the problem is, because of FFP restrictions, they can’t, and everyone knows that, making negotiations quite easy/difficult depending on which side you’re on.
