Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly submitted a new offer in a bid to sign Everton midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye, but should the club accept it?

The French champions pursued the Senegal international midfielder during the January transfer window, and despite the 29-year old wanting out, the Toffees stood firm in their stance that the midfielder was too important to sell.

Now L’Equipe, as reported by GFFN, claim that PSG have returned in another attempt to sign the enforcer, citing an offer of £27million.

Negotiations are expected to continue in the coming days, which could potentially suggest that Everton didn’t reject the offer out of hand. Is this a good thing?

Regarding whether or not Everton should sell Gana this summer all depends on how well the club expect to do in the transfer window. At 29, Marcel Brands will likely be keen to replace Gana with a younger alternative, although his presence is such that it will difficult to replace him.

Gana has been such an important player at Goodison Park over the past few seasons, and it would be tough to find a replacement for a modest fee, although the club could find it difficult to turn down the potential for such a high return on investment.

Bought for just £7.1million, PSG’s offer is almost quadruple that initial investment, which given his age could be too good to turn down. It would be a shame to see him depart though, and it remains to be seen who could be brought in, or whether players like James McCarthy and Muhamed Besic can step up.
