Odds slashed from 5/2 to 1/2 on Everton midfielder joining PSG

Everton could be about to lose a regular from their starting line-up.

Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is now heavily odds-on to join Paris Saint-Germain in this window at 1/2, slashed from 5/2 by bookies. That’s an implied probability of 66.7% that the move goes through.

Reports claim Everton have rejected a bid for the 29-year-old, but as deadline day looms the French giants are expected to table another offer before the close of the window.

Accruing 78% of bets on the market in the last 24 hours, punters are confident that the Ligue 1 club will get their man. Alternatively, he is priced at 6/4 to stay at Everton, with that outcome drifting from 2/7.

Gueye joined the Merseyside club back in 2016 after a short spell at Aston Villa. The Senegalese international has since established himself as a regular in the Everton side, racking up 20 Premier League appearances already this season.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel was said to be interested in Dutch wonder-kid Frenkie De Jong, but after he recently completed a move to Barcelona, the German is looking to bolster his midfield elsewhere.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “PSG's midfield has had a rather makeshift look about it this season, with defenders Dani Alves and Marquinhos both filling in of late.

“Idrissa Gueye isn't a midfielder that will go and get you 10 goals and 15 assists but with the attacking talent the French champions already have at their disposal, he might actually be the kind of player that they need in the centre of the park.”
