PSG won the Ligue 1 title by 15 points but yet again failed in their bid to win the Champions League. They were knocked out by eventual champions Real Madrid in the last 16.

Gueye is claimed to be one player who could depart the Parisian club, along with Mauro Icardi, Danilo Pereira, Keylor Navas and Julian Draxler.

The Senegal international enjoyed a fine three-year spell at Everton between 2016-2019.

Signed from Aston Villa for £7.1 million, he made 108 appearances and scored four goals for the Toffees before being sold to PSG for £30 million.

Now after winning two Ligue 1 titles and reaching the 2020 Champions League final, he could depart.

Chelsea pair Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour have been linked with a move to Goodison, along with Tottenham's Harry Winks.
