Everton star Idrissa Gueye has told L’Equipe that he still wants to move to Paris Saint-Germain after a January transfer ultimately failed to materialise.
The midfielder has revealed he’s hopeful of joining the Ligue 1 giants or another top European club in the near future.
The 29-year-old has made 97 appearances for the Merseysiders and has certainly been a good servant to the club, as their most consistent central midfielder since his move from Aston Villa two-and-a-half years ago.
But the Everton fans have been on social media offering their views on Gueye’s comments and they certainly haven’t gone down well, with many now wanting him to leave.
Indeed, one fan even claimed that the 5ft 9in ace should be put in the reserves – the Under-23s – until the end of the season following his comments to the French media.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from Everton supporters can be seen below:
Throw him in reserves

That’s nice of him. Getting paid £75k a week to do that anyway.

Every club is a stepping stone to a player now. All they see is money

Sell him. Not actually that good if we’re being honest. Villa went down with him, we’ve been terrible since he came to us. Sell him and move on. He’s not irreplaceable.
