Everton fans have been drooling over the prospect of landing one of their former players this week after fresh reports emerged about his future at his current club.
According to French football journalist @JordanM_Choco, Paris Saint-Germain are willing to sell defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye should a ‘great’ offer come in for him this summer.
Gueye is averaging 3.2 tackles, 1.7 interceptions and one key pass per game across France’s top tier and the Champions League, which only highlights the bite that Carlo Ancelotti has lacked in midfield this campaign.
Morgan Schneiderlin, who many in Merseyside want rid of, ranks best for tackles per match with 2.1 and he’s only started 12 times all season.
It remains to be seen what sort of fee PSG would command for the industrious lynchpin with Transfermarkt currently valuing him at £21.6m. He still has three years to run on his current contract.
Going by the following reaction, you’d struggle to find a member of the Toffees faithful that wouldn’t want Gueye back in the blue colours of Merseyside.
Here’s what has been said…
I’ll walk to Paris to pick the Senegalese prince up and carry him home like a newborn.

People saying no to him cause he’s 30. If your saying you don’t want him cause of that but happy to have Fabian Delph being here then footy isn’t for you. He’s the type of player we need in the middle.
