Everton replaces Idrissa Gueye who joined PSG. Everton has been keen on closing the gap left after they sold Gueye to PSG.


Philippe Gbamin closes the midfield gap before the onset of the EPL 2019/2020 season next week.


Everton has made their fourth summer signing, with defensive midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin joining from Mainz for an undisclosed fee.

The 23 year-old-year-old Ivory Coast international has signed a five-year contract, with the fee reportedly in the region of £22.5m. Gbamin is expected to fill the midfield gap left by Idrissa Gueye, who joined PSG.

“It’s a big moment with a lot of emotion and now it’s on me to prove on the pitch why they bought me,” Gbamin told EvertonTV. “I’m excited because Everton is a great club with a big history and ambition, so I didn’t think for more than a moment – I wanted to come here.”

“Jean-Philippe is a player who has developed really well during the last three seasons, play high-level level competition like the Bundesliga,” said the Everton manager, Marco Silva.
