According to L’Equipe, Paris Saint-Germain have rekindled their interest in Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
Well, the French champions have come back in for the Senegal international after seeing a £26.2m bid rejected for his services back in January.
Their interest back then resulted in the former Aston Villa man handing in a transfer request as he attempted to force through a move, but the Toffees held firm and managed to hang on to their midfield workhorse.

Now however, the Parisians have come back in with a €30m (£27m) bid for the 29-year-old, which Everton are yet to respond to.
You could forgive PSG for submitting such a low offer if Gueye were to be in the final year of his contract or something, but he isn’t – there is little you can say to defend the Ligue 1 side for such a low offer.
Perhaps you could say that they are aware of Gueye’s desire to join them having handed in a transfer request, but even then, they have completely disregarded the value of the player to Everton.
In this day and age, a player of Gueye’s importance could easily fetch over £50m, seeing as that is what Newcastle are after for Sean Longstaff – Leicester’s £90m valuation of Harry Maguire only emphasises just how bad PSG’s bid for the 5 foot 9 midfielder really is.
To offer just £0.8m more than they offered in January is especially cheeky – why would the Toffees accept that when it could be argued that Gueye got even better after the winter transfer window whilst showing real commitment to the club?
With three years remaining on his contract, PSG have massively insulted Everton with their low-ball offer.
