According to Sky Sports, Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye has asked the Toffees to let him move to Paris Saint-Germain before the end of the month.
The report claims that Gueye has ‘written to club officials pleading with them to allow the move’, but has not officially put in a transfer request.
Sky Sports reported on Sunday that PSG had submitted a £21.5m offer for the 29-year-old and they are ready to come back with an improved offer with Thomas Tuchel’s men, who will soon travel to England to take on Manchester United in the Champions League, currently short of options in the middle of the park.
Gueye is a hugely important player at Everton, who he joined from Aston Villa in 2016, as per the BBC.
The Merseyside outfit are currently struggling for a run of results, however, and it is not a surprise that a move to PSG appeals to the Senegal international.
The Everton fans have been on social media offering their views on the latest developments.

I get why people are encouraging Gueye’s departure, but if he does so with people saying the season is over/wait until summer, what happens if results continue or worsen? Can everyone handle that until summer? I’m not so sure if the past 48 hours are anything to go by. #EFC

Think we have to start running like a proper ruthless club. As soon as gana’s engine goes he offers zero. Give benni/McCarthy/Davies ago until season end

Schneiderlin will do the job. He’s better than we’ve given credit for. Deserves another chance IMO.
