#5 Everton reject bid for Gueye
Everton manager Marco Silva has admitted that the club have rejected a bid for Idrissa Gueye from PSG. With an injury to Marco Verratti and the contractual stand-off with Adrien Rabiot, PSG are in need of a midfielder.
As a result, they had launched a bid for the Everton star. However, it was rejected instantly as Silva claimed that he is a crucial player for the Toffees and the only way they can sign an Everton is to pay what the player deserves.
"We have rejected the offer," Silva said. "He is a really important player to us, we don't put [players] on the market.
"For clubs to buy our players, they have to look for the value of the player. I cannot see this price as the right value for the player.
Silva further emphasized the importance of Gueye and suggested that Everton would do everything possible to keep him at the club beyond this window.
"You know my opinion since the first day you started speaking about this possible offer.
"From a technical point of view, as a manager, he is a really important player for us, and he is one player we don't think to lose in this market."
Finally, he suggested that the ultimate decision over the player depends on the club but reiterated that Gueye is a very important player in his eyes.
"Of course, after some moments it is a matter of money and it is up to the club to decide, but from my technical point of view he is a player who is really important for us."
