Everton are continuing talks over a return for their former midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye from Paris St Germain.
The 32-year-old is up for sale and Everton are looking for a short-term deal given the Senegal international’s age.
Manager Frank Lampard wants two midfielders and has a tentative interest in Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour too. However, Lampard is not pursuing a deal for his Chelsea teammate Ross Barkley but remains an admirer of Armando Broja.

Broja saw his move to West Ham collapse after the club opted to move for Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo instead.
Gana Gueye made over 100 appearances for Everton between 2016 and 2019.
The midfielder departed the club in 2019 and has been a regular for PSG since his arrival, making 111 appearances in that time and scoring seven times.
Everton are looking to wrap up some summer business a week out from the start of the new Premier League season. They have already secured the signings of Ruben Vinagre, Dwight McNeil and James Tarkowski.

The Toffees open up their campaign against Lampard’s former team Chelsea on Saturday August 6 before they travel to Aston Villa the following week.
The club will be hoping the departure of Richarlison, who was instrumental in them remaining in the Premier League last season, will not have a significant derailing effect early on this year.
The Brazilian left the club for Spurs earlier this summer in a deal worth a little over £50m.
