This week is shaping up to be a definitive one for Everton, and most of the activity is centred around the future of Idrissa Gana Gueye.

The Senegal midfielder has been a with a target for PSG all summer, with Thomas Tuchel insisting the club revive their interest from the January transfer window.

He’s seemingly convinced new Sporting Director Leonardo to sign Gueye and talks have been underway for the past few weeks. They’ve progressed significantly in the past week, and a deal now appears to be on the way.

RMC journalist Saber Desfarges reports that the two clubs reached an agreement for Gueye last night, which backs up claims from today’s L’Eqiupe.

It’s added Everton have now turned their attention to replacements and have four players on a shortlist. They are Lucas Tousart, Adrien Tamèze, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Tiemoue Bakayoko.


Gbamin has already been linked with the Blues this summer, in fact, talks were seemingly already underway, as have Tousart and Tameze, but the link to Bayakoko is a new and interesting one.

Indeed, Desfarges claims PSG were keen on him, but Tuchel insisted on Gueye and Leonardo ‘respected’ his choice on the matter.

Either way, Gueye to PSG seems to be nearing a conclusion and, despite the arrival of Fabian Delph, it seems Everton will be signing a replacement immediately.
