Idrissa Gueye insists he still wants to join Paris Saint Germain in near future.
The midfielder was on the top of PSG’s January shopping list but the French champions had a bid rejected for the midfielder on the deadline day. Gueye has been a pivotal part of the Everton midfield and has emerged as a key figure under Marco Silva.
PSG are expected to raid the Merseysiders in the summer to snatch the 29 year old and it would be tough for the club to resist the attempt. The player himself has insisted to play at the top level and PSG could be the perfect stage for him.
Gueye said, “It is a dream that sadly did not come true. Every player works to join the best teams, to play in matches in the Champions League.
“But I was honoured that PSG were interested in me. Now, I know that I am of interest to these types of clubs, I am ready to go to the final level to join a top European club.
“I am going to work even more so that they come back to me. Maybe it is not finished with PSG. PSG asked my leaders to find out how I could leave. But Everton put the brakes on right away. They did not want to sell me. I pushed.
“I saw the directors to tell them of my desire to go to Paris, it was a golden opportunity, a huge challenge not to miss at 29 years old.”
