French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are closing in on a move for Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye this summer after the two clubs agreed on a deal for the player.
According to Sky Sports, PSG have agreed on a £28m deal for Idrissa Gueye and he’s expected to leave Everton two years after he joined the Toffees from newly promoted Premier League outfit Aston Villa.
Former European champions Aston Villa suffered relegation from the Premier League for the first time two years ago and Idrissa Gueye was a key member of that squad.
The Senegalese international moved from Aston Villa to Everton at the end of that season.
Aston Villa are back in the Premier League after they secured promotion through the playoffs.
The Midlands club got the better of Derby County in their playoff final clash.
Aston Villa beat Derby 2-1 to secure Premier League promotion.
Idrissa Gueye has previously been linked with both Manchester United and PSG especially during the winter transfer window but Everton were reluctant to let him leave in the middle of the season.
PSG have finally gotten their man after months of trying.
Idrissa Gueye was part of the Senegal squad that lost the final of the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.
