The Everton midfielder could be heading for the exit door this summer.

According to a report from L'Equipe, Paris Saint Germain have made their move as they look to sign Everton ace Idrissa Gueye, making a €30 million (£27 million) bid for the Senegalese ace.

The 29-year-old joined the Toffees from Aston Villa in the summer of 2016 for a fee believed to be worth £7.1 million, according to Sky Sports, and he has gone on to rack up 108 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.

 

The 63-capped Senegal international still has three years remaining on his current deal with Everton, so they are under no pressure to sell the midfielder, although if the price is right, they might just decide that now is the right time to move him on.

Gueye, who earns £70,000 per week according to Spotrac, is an important player for Everton, and if they are to sell him, they won't let him go on the cheap.

Paris United claimed earlier this week that the Blues will not sell him for less that £45 million.

L'Equipe claims that PSG have started the bidding at £27 million, however.

So something clearly has to give. Either PSG need to up their offer or Everton lower their demands.

If Gueye's head has been turned, however, it will be incredibly hard for the Toffees to keep hold of the tough-tackling midfielder.
