Everton are being linked with a move for Lille midfielder Thiago Mendes as a possible replacement for Idrissa Gueye, who could possibly depart this summer for Paris Saint-Germain.

According to journalist Duncan Castles, cited by the Daily Star, Everton are exploring the possibility of bringing the Brazilian to Goodison Park in the coming months if Gueye decides to move on this summer.

If Gueye does indeed depart the club, a replacement is desperately needed, and on paper, a move for Mendes looks to be a like-for-like replacement.

Gueye has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, rumoured to be joining Ligue 1 giants Paris “Swansea’s Leroy Fer lined up as a replacement in this transfer chain.” It’s believed Lille want at Duncan Castles suggested Everton could make a move for Thiago Mendes if Idrissa Gueye

The 27-year-old has played a part in Lille’s impressive Ligue 1 campaign this season, standing out in midfield with his energy, along with his passing and tackling capabilities, similar to Gueye’s campaign with Everton.

Mendes, who is two years younger than Gueye, could be available for around €30m, a fee the Toffees may well have to pay for a high-quality replacement for the consistent Gueye.

The defensive-minded midfielder would bring a bundle of energy and discipline to Marco Silva’s midfield, something the team need if Gueye completes a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

If Everton are serious about breaking into Europe once more under Silva, a move for Mendes could prove to be a shrewd piece of business, and Toffees fans may not even miss Gueye in the heart of the midfield if Mendes takes to the Premier League just as he has done in Ligue 1.

Atletico join the hunt for Chelsea target Mendes.
Atletico Madrid are providing Chelsea with fresh competition for the signing of Thiago Mendes, according to Globoesporte. The Blues have been linked with a move for the Lille central midfielder this summer, as Maurizio Sarri looks to boost his options in the middle of the park. Atletico’s interest is believed to be “strong”, however, with the Liga outfit clearly an enticing option for any player. Everton are also reportedly monitoring the 27-year-old, but it is unlikely that they will acquire his signature over the others mentioned.
