PSG midfielder Idrissa Gueye is expected to join Everton on Wednesday. The Senegalese international is expected in England for his medical examination.
Idrissa Gueye must fly to England to complete his transfer to Everton from Paris Saint-Germain for a small fee, indicates The Athletic this Wednesday morning. A two-year contract plus an option for an additional year awaits the Senegalese international at Goodison Park.
A return to basics
Initially, Idrissa Gueye had no plans to return to a club he left to join PSG three years ago. But faced with the few opportunities that presented themselves to him, and faced with the fact that Christophe Galtier was not counting on him in Paris, he got used to the idea of his return to the Toffees where he will find a team managed by Frank Lampard now.
Preceded by a mini-scandal
However, the player is preceded in his return by a mini-scandal around the values of the religion he practices and the LGBT + communities. Last season, in Ligue 1, during a day dedicated to the cause, he refused to wear the PSG rainbow colored jersey: « If a football club expects its players to reflect the welcoming and inclusive nature it wishes to promote, then someone’s religious beliefs should not be some kind of excuse to oppose the inclusiveness. No one is asking anyone to change their religious views, but it should have nothing to do with a football club being inclusive and welcoming to the LGBT+ community. » said a local association.
