Everton reject second PSG bid for Gueye

PSG have seen a second bid worth £26million for midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye rejected by Everton, per Times journalist Paul Joyce.

What’s the word?

Gueye has been linked with the French club throughout the January transfer window but Sky Sports reported on Thursday morning that Everton had resolved to keep the midfielder. An initial £21.5m offer was made earlier this week, per a separate Sky Sports report.

However, a further bid was tabled with the deadline looming according to Joyce, which has again been rebuffed by Marco Silva’s side.

Gueye has made 21 appearances for Everton in all competitions this season, according to Transfermarkt.

No need to sell

Sometimes clubs get to keep their best players.

In previous years, Gueye could well have moved to the French capital, forcing his way out of the door at Goodison Park.

But Everton have resolved to keep the midfielder and have achieved their goal, boosting their own chances of success as a result.

The club are only two points behind seventh-placed Wolves and should still harbour hopes of qualifying for the Europa League.

Gueye may well be disappointed for now but the club’s goals come first, and Everton are far more likely to overhaul Wolves with Gueye on Merseyside.
