Everton manager Marco Silva has confirmed that the club have rejected PSG’s bid for Idrissa Gana Gueye but has suggested that a deal could still happen.
The Toffees are keen to keep hold of the dynamic defensive midfielder, who is wanted by French champions, PSG.
“We reject the offer,” he told the media ahead of Tuesday’s trip to face Huddersfield.
“He is a really important player for us. It’s normal for us to sign new players, it’s something really difficult and the club has to spend good amounts for us.
“For clubs to come and buy our players they have to meet the value of the player.
“Technical point of view, he is a really important player for us and one player we do not think to lose in this moment.
“It looks really difficult for something to happen in the market now for us.”
However, in an interesting comment, Silva did suggest that the club still could sell the 29-year-old, saying that it could just become ‘a matter of money’.
“My opinion is the same as the club’s, and we rejected the offer,” the Portuguese added.
“He is a really important player for us. He is one player we do not think to lose in this market.
“Of course after some moments it can become a matter of money, but from my point of view he is a really important player for us.”
There are just three days until the transfer window closes.
