Everton’s defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye has reportedly emerged as a shock transfer target for Man United ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old Everton star who was the subject of interest from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain during the January transfer, he has made over 100 appearances for the Merseyside Blues since a 2016 move from championship club Aston Villa.

African midfielder has been in impressive form for the Merseyside Blues in recent weeks, meanwhile, and according to the reports from Britain, Everton are planning a summer approach.

The report has suggested that Man Utd have identified Gueye as an ideal replacement for Ander Herrera, who will see his current deal set to expire in the summer.

The Spaniard is widely expected to leave 20-times English champions and sign for PSG at the end of the current campaign, while Juan Mata will also see his contract expire in two months.

The Red Devils have also been heavily linked with a switch for Sporting Lisbon’s midfielder Bruno Fernandes as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side prepare for a busy transfer window.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have reportedly decided to activate the release clause of Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld.

The Red Devils have been rumoured with a number of world-class defenders ahead of the summer transfer window, and the North-West giants have a strong interest in signing the Belgian defender, Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgium international has 15 months left on his current deal. However, the 30-year-old centre-back can be signed for £25m ahead of the next campaign.
