  • Idrissa Gueye refuses to speak on the PSG speculation

    Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye has resisted the temptation to speak on the Paris Saint-Germain transfer link as he is currently with Senegal at the African Cup of Nations. The west African nation have progressed to the semi-final stage of the competition and they are now scheduled to face Tunisia, who are regarded as the underdogs for the encounter.

    In a press conference, Gueye was asked about the recent speculation linking him with Les Parisiens and his response was neutral with the focus on winning the African Cup of Nations with Senegal, he said:“I am focused on my competition. I did not read L’Equipe but they told me about it. I am fully focused on my competition. We’ll have time to talk about it again if it’s still there. I cannot talk about it here. Once again, I am focused on my competition.”

  • Everton on the verge of landing Andre Gomes from Barcelona

    Everton are reportedly close to wrapping up the signature of midfielder Andre Gomes from Barcelona. The Portugal international was impressive during his season-long loan with the Toffees during the previous campaign and that has enticed the Merseyside outfit to negotiate a permanent move for his signature this summer.

    According to AS, the Toffees are currently under advanced negotiations with the Blaugrana for the services of the former Valencia man and they are confident of agreeing a fee of around £22m for the permanent transfer of the midfielder. It had previously been claimed that Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan could offer strong competition in the pursuit of the Portuguese, but it appears that the Toffees have received a clear route with the player preferring a return to familiar surroundings next term.

  • Everton manager emphasises the need to sign Andre Gomes this summer

    Everton boss Marco Silva has said that the Toffees must seek to re-sign Andre Gomes this summer, although the eventual decision is dependent on parent side Barcelona. The Portugal international spent the recent Premier League season on loan with the Toffees and he made a valuable impact in the 27 games where he featured.

    As such, the Merseyside outfit appear keen on landing a permanent move for his services but that is dependent on the Blaugrana, who are also evaluating interest from elsewhere for the midfielders. Speaking to O Jogo, the Toffees head coach said: “There is a Portuguese player in the squad that we want, which is Andre Gomes.

  • Marco Silva speaks on transfer situation of Andre Gomes

    Everton manager Marco Silva has acknowledged that the club are yet to make a decision over the future of Andre Gomes. The Portuguese midfielder has been impressive since making the season-long loan from Barcelona last summer but the Toffees have yet to finalise a permanent move for his services.

    Speaking to reporters, Silva said that the club are working closely to cement a permanent deal for the Portugal international, although the final outcome could wait until the end of the campaign, he said: “We already have (an idea). Of course, when I am speaking to him, we have to say what we can say in this moment. To be 100% honest with you, we did nothing yet about the situation because all of our focus is on the season. But I am working with Marcel, we are planning everything, and with time – which is different to last season. We maybe know more than you about the Andre position and all these things, but all we can say to you, is what he said.”
