Idrissa Gueye has revealed to L’Equipe he wants to quit Everton at the end of the season
The Merseysiders blocked the Senegal midfielder from quitting for Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window even though he pushed hard for a move.
Gueye expressed his sadness at being denied a move to the European giants but explained he will redouble his efforts to get a a marquee transfer from Goodison Park in the summer.
“It is a dream that sadly did not come true,” Gueye told French newspaper L’Equipe. “Every player works to join the best teams, to play in such 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, that 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.”
Gueye explained how Everton refused to let him move in January.
“They put the brakes on immediately,” he added to L’Equipe. “I pushed. I told the club I wanted to take this golden opportunity to go to Paris. A huge challenge, especially at the age of 29.”
