Paris Saint-Germain in Talks With Everton Over Surprise Move for Idrissa Gueye

​Paris Saint-Germain could make a surprise move for Everton midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye in January, as they seek a central midfielder within the parameters of their Financial Fair Play restrictions. 

With Lassana Diarra's injury and Adrien Rabiot being heavily linked with a January exit as his contract runs down, the French champions have been repeatedly linked with a move for a central midfielder of late.


The 29-year-old has been in impressive form so far this season, but given his age and relative low profile, he comes as something of a left-field transfer target for one of Europe's elite clubs.

French outlet L'Equipe report (via ​GFFN), however, that due to their FFP enforced budget of €20m, Gueye has emerged as a budget target to fill the central midfield gap in Thomas Tuchel's squad.

They are also reported to have enquired about a loan move for ​Liverpool's Fabinho, but given his recent arrival and even more recent emergence as a first choice holding midfielder at Anfield, that one seems unlikely at best. 

Gueye, meanwhile, has been a regular for Marco Silva's ​Everton, and it hasn't been reported what they would be willing to except for the former Lille midfielder, who has made 88 appearances for Everton since joining from ​Aston Villa in 2016. 

The €20m fee in question would more than double what they paid to sign him, but whether they would be keen to let go of a player who has been so important to their impressive season so far remains to be seen. 

He's started 15 of Everton's 17 ​Premier League games so far, as they sit in eighth place in the Premier League table.
