Marco Silva discusses Idrissa Gueye’s potential Everton exit

Could Idrissa Gueye leave Everton this month?

Everton boss Marco Silva has discussed the possibility of Idrissa Gueye leaving this month as Paris Saint-Germain continue to be linked with a move.

Gueye has become a key player for Everton since his move from Aston Villa.

The club signed him for a reported £7.1million after Villa were relegated from the Premier League.

He’s come a long way since then, becoming one of the best tacklers in the English top flight.

Though, he could be set for a move to an elite club soon.

That is because Paris Saint-Germain have been heavily linked with a move for him.

There have been suggestions that the French club already have an agreement with Gueye over a move.

Now, Marco Silva has responded to those suggestions.

“We don’t have an offer”

Silva claimed in his press conference today that Everton have not received any offers for Gueye.

“For us it’s new. We don’t have an offer. Not one club made an offer to Gana,” he explained, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo. 

“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.”

When asked about a complaint over potential illegal approaches to the player, which was suggested by the Mirror, Silva admitted he didn’t know anything.

“What I can tell you now is that there are no offers going to Gana. If there is something illegal then I don’t know.”

Speaking on his own transfer plans, Silva also admitted it would be difficult to bring anyone in this month.

However, that could change if any players left the club.

“It will be difficult. It’s just if something special happens with one of our players.

“If someone leaves the club we would have to have the solutions to find another player.”
