Almost every team in the Premier League missed a trick by not acquiring this man’s services. Well, that is every team apart from Everton.
Whilst playing for an abysmal Aston Villa side who finished bottom of the table last season, Idrissa Gueye was still able to record the 2nd most tackles (144) and Interceptions (141) in Premier League – 2nd only to Leicester’s N’golo Kante.
Gueye’s ability to breakdown play would make a difference to any team, but for Everton, it’s a God-send! Their current anchor in midfield is seasoned veteran Gareth Barry, and at the age of 35, he’s not getting any younger…
With Gueye in the side, the defensive frailties that plagued Everton throughout all of last season should now be a thing of the past!
Not to mention he only cost the Toffies £7 million, that’s £23 million less than
Chelsea paid for Kante for those of you who were wondering.
The VERDICT…. Absolute Bargain! Everton’s Centre-Backs Will Have A Lot Less To Worry About This Season With Gueye In Front Of Them
