According to a recent report from Sky Sports, Paris Saint Germain are interested in signing Idrissa Gueye in the January transfer window. However, Everton fans on Twitter have been laughing off the rumours.
The 29-year-old has become a key figure at Goodison Park, and his absence through injury in recent weeks has highlighted just how important he is to Marco Silva’s side. With Gueye out of the side, Everton have now lost 3-1 to Manchester City at the Etihad and 6-2 at home to Tottenham.
Gueye provides that protection in front of the back four that every team needs, no matter how good the football they play when in possession.
A Senegalese international, he is one of the best in the business at breaking up play and making crucial tackles, so letting him go would be a serious error if the club have ambitions to break into the top six.
Clearly, Everton fans on Twitter don’t believe the hierarchy will accept an offer though and they have been joking about the rumoured interest from the French champions. Check out the best tweets below.
I truly hope those Gueye to PSG rumors are just rumors because we look absolutely dreadful without him. New striker and right back needed as well. @EvertonNewsFeed

Due to FFP PSG shouldn’t be able to afford Gueye this window, unless we get a player + cash deal. Neymar/Cavagni anyone?
