West Ham Tube Sign

Gueye has been linked with West Ham, Southampton and Crystal Palace.

Speaking to La Voix du Nord, Lille’s 25-year-old midfielder Gueye has commented on his future, and admitted that moving to England is something that would please him.

The Senegalese international said: “I have a contract with Lille until 2018. Admittedly, there are contacts and there will be offers. I will have to look at it all and decide what suits me best. [I will] find the offer that will allow me to grow, to allow me to take new steps to be in line with my ambitions.

“Everyone knows that England has a league that attracts me, even if I am not closing the door on going to other leagues.”

These are certainly words that hint at a potential summer transfer to England, and that should please fans of Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Ham - who have all been linked with Gueye.

France Football linked with the Saints, whilst Palace and the Hammers have reportedly shown an interest, as per the Mail.

He would certainly be a strong signing for any interested club, and the first report claims a fee of €10 million would be enough to sign him.

A highly energetic midfielder, Gueye has developed his game this term from his usual defensive work to include a goal threat, and his box-to-box work rate is something that any top level team desires to possess in the midfield.

Gueye is clearly aware of the interest, and is very keen on a move to England this summer. If any club wants to sign him, it is hard to look past the midfielder rejecting a deal, and for the reported €10 million fee, Gueye will make a great piece of transfer business this summer.
