Speaking during his pre-match press conference ahead of Everton’s trip to Millwall on Saturday in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, manager Marco Silva shed some more light on the developing situation with Paris St. Germain’s interest in Idrissa Gueye.
There’s been a lot said in the last couple of weeks about PSG and Everton, with the French media insisting that offers have been tabled, the player already has an agreement with PSG and has been in touch with players across the channel about the conditions around the club.
On the other hand, the English media have been reporting that no offer has been made, and that Everton do not want to let the Senegalese midfielder leave. Today Silva clarified what’s been happening.
“For us it’s new, for me also that’s new. We don’t have an offer. Not one club has made an official offer to Gana or to our club.
“Of course I am speaking with him like I do with all the others in a normal situation. His focus is on our club. He is working to give his best in our club. Nothing more to say about that.”
There was word yesterday that Everton could seek disciplinary action against PSG for ‘illegal approaches’ but Silva moved to defuse that talk.
“Until now what I can tell you now is that there are no offers going to Gana. If there is something illegal or not then I don’t know.”
Between yesterday and today there have been two other midfielders whose moves to PSG have been all but confirmed, with Leandro Paredes from Zenit St Petersburg and Allan from Napoli looking like they will move to Paris which could finally put to bed this Gana transfer talk.
