But Blues boss Marco Silva says the club still have work to do in order to convince the on-loan midfielder to stay at Goodison Park.

Idrissa Gueye is set to play his final game for Everton on Sunday with both PSG and Manchester United circling the Senegal international midfielder this summer. Everton are understood to accept that 29-year-old Gueye wants to leave the club though the Merseysiders will look to collect around £40million with the player having three years left on his contract. As a French speaker, a move to Paris is attractive to Gueye but United have also made their intentions clear and have the financial resources to offer a larger transfer fee.

They have put a price on the left-back too, as AS reported previously, they will accept an offer of €30 million. One of the teams showing the most interest is Napoli under Carlo Ancelotti.
