According to reports, Chelsea are interested in signing Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye. Gueye moved to the Toffees from Aston Villa last summer and was impressive in the Premier League.
The 27-year-old has earned himself comparisons to N’Golo Kante due to his performances. Gueye has attracted the attention of many clubs and Everton manager Ronald Koeman is said to be wanting to tie him down to a new contract soon.
Given that Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley are likely to exit Goodison Park before the start of next season, Koeman will be very reluctant to let go of more of his core squad members.
It is necessary that Everton manage to keep Gueye in their squad next season if they wish to challenge for a place in the top four. The losses of Lukaku and Barkley will be massive blows and the club cannot afford to lose more key players.
