According to AS via Sport Witness, Everton could miss out on Djibril Sidibe this summer with Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain showing interest in the 27-year-old. Sidibe has spent the season on loan at Goodison Park, but his form in 2020 has Carlo Ancelotti and Marcel Brands unsure whether to turn his move permanent.

Everton's Cenk Tosun reacts to a missed chance v Southampton

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

Sidibe joined Everton from AS Monaco last summer and has gone on to make 25 appearances in all competitions, adding five assists. As per WhoScored, the French international has averaged 3.5 tackles per game in the Premier League – more than Serge Aurier (2.8) for Tottenham Hotspur and Cesar Azpilicueta (2.4) for Chelsea – but Everton may not match his €15m asking price.

The Blues have been linked with Emerson, Jesus Corona, Santiago Arias, Ola Aina and Bouna Sarr, so they have alternatives to signing Sidibe. Ancelotti could also recall Jonjoe Kenny and keep him in the first-team next season to compete with Seamus Coleman, but time will tell what he decides to do.

Sidibe signed a contract extension at Everton until the end of the season and may have to impress in their remaining games to warrant a permanent stay on Merseyside.
