Gueye snubbed a last-ditch hijack bid from Forest to seal Everton return

IDRISSA GUEYE has snubbed Nottingham Forest’s attempt to hijack the Senegalese midfielder’s return to Everton.

Paris Saint-Germain are believed to have given Gueye, 32, the green light for a return to the Premier League.

Forest then pounced but Gueye is believed to have his heart set on a move back to Goodison Park.

The 32-year-old swapped Merseyside for Parc des Princes in 2019 for £30million after four seasons in England.

Gueye became a huge fan favourite during his spell with the Toffees between 2016-2019.

That was after he joined them from Aston Villa.

And he could now be poised for a return after helping Les Parisiens win two Ligue 1 titles, two Coupe de France’s and one Coupe de la Ligue.

Gueye was even left out of Les Parisiens’ pre-season tour of Japan with the club keen for him to find a new team.

PSG are desperate to cash in on the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations winner with the player having just one year left on his contract.

Newly-promoted Forest have splurged £82m on six new signings.


And they are trying to land Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White for around £30m.

Everton could pair Gueye with Lille midfielder Amadou Onana, 20.

The Belgium midfielder, who was born in Senegalese capital Dakar like Gueye, was at the ground to watch the Toffees’ 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.
