Everton boss Marco Silva confirmed on Monday that his club have rejected an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for midfielder Idrissa Gueye. Ahead of the Premier League game against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday, Silva explained why the club rejected the reported €25m offer from Paris.
He said: “We rejected the offer. He is a really important player for us. We don’t put [players] in the market. For some clubs to come here to buy our players they have to really [meet] the value of the player. For this price I cannot see the value.”
“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.”
“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.” The holding midfielder has played 20 league games for Everton this season and is yet to score a goal in the Premier League this term.
