With the winter transfer window set to close at midnight tomorrow, Idrissa Gueye looks set to complete his move from Everton to Paris Saint Germain before deadline day. Just a few details remain to be resolved - the transfer fee being the main obstacle at the moment.

  • Midfielder
  • Senegal

Signing the Senegalese midfielder is high on coach Thomas Tuchel's priorities and PSG are keen to include a player in the operation, although that is unlikely to be Belgian right-back Thomas Meunier who Everton have their eye on.

The French club are prepared to fork out 40 million euros  for Gueye - 10 million more than their previous offer. Everton would be open to selling the 29-year-old but not at any price. PSG Director of Sport Antero Henrique and agent Pini Zahavi hope to close the deal in the next few hours.
