Paris Saint-Germain's Idrissa Gueye could be on his way back to Everton

Everton are on the verge of filling the gap left by Idrissa Gueye by resigning...erm Idrissa Gueye.

The 31-year-old PSG midfielder left Everton in 2019 and many Toffees fans believe the club have been struggling in the middle of the park ever since.

Gueye has a year left on his PSG contract and now the French giants, according to the Daily Mail, are said to have offered the Senegal international back to the Merseyside club in a bid to recoup a fee before he leaves on a free next summer.

The midfielder won two league titles and enjoyed two Coupe de France triumphs with PSG. He has also made 111 appearances for the Parc des Princes club.

Gueye courted controversy last season after refusing to wear the rainbow flag and as a result missed PSG's 4-0 away win over Montpellier.

He was "perceived as a hero" back in his home country of Senegal where homosexuality is illegal. 

The player first arrived in the Premier League back in 2015 after signing with Aston Villa from Lille for a reported £9million.

In his sole season at Villa Park, the midfielder made 38 appearances across all competitions and scored one goal.

With Villa facing relegation to the Championship, Gueye moved to Everton for £7.1million, signing a four-year contract.

The player enjoyed three seasons at Goodison Park, where he made 108 appearances and scored four goals.

On July 2019, Gueye moved to Paris Saint-Germain for £30million, but after three seasons in France, it appears the Senegal international may be on his way back to the Premier League.

Everton are also in talks with Burnley to sign Dwight McNeil.
