Idrissa Gueye has handed in a transfer request at Everton in a bid to secure a move to Paris Saint-Germain, Sky Sports News understands.

Gueye has written to club officials pleading with them to allow him to join the French champions.

However, Everton have denied they have received an official transfer request from the Senegal international.

Sky Sports News revealed on Sunday that PSG had bid £21.5m for the midfielder. Everton insist Gueye is not for sale and they are expected to reject the offer.

However, with only days remaining in the transfer window, it is understood PSG could come back to test Everton's resolve with an increased offer to try to secure a move.
