Earlier today, we carried a report from L’Equipe, who claimed that Everton are ‘working on several profiles’ in case Idrissa Gueye leaves the Merseyside club in the winter market.

The Senegalese midfielder is a transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain.

Another French outlet Le10 Sport now claims Les Parisiens manager Thomas Tuchel is planning to bring in two new midfielders to Parc des Princes this month.

Gueye is one of the targets and it’s once again mentioned his case is more advanced and the Premier League outfit are already anticipating his departure from Goodison Park.

The report suggests Marco Silva’s side have identified Stanislav Lobotka of Celta Vigo as a possible replacement for the former Aston Villa man and in ‘recent hours’, Everton have ‘made good progress’ in their efforts to sign the 24-year-old Slovakian.

Le10 Sport doesn’t mention if the La Liga outfit or Lobotka are interested in the transfer midway through the season, the progress surely wouldn’t be good if not.

Having signed a five-year deal after joining the Spanish club from Nordsjælland in 2017, Celta offered him a new contract in February 2018 and his current deal runs down in 2023.
