Everton are in advanced talks to re-sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
Fabian Delph, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Donny van de Beek were among the players to leave Everton this summer.
Gueye played 108 times after joining Everton from Aston Villa for around £7m, winning the player of the season award in his final year.
It is understood, however, that there is no interest from Everton in re-signing former midfielder Ross Barkley, who is currently at Chelsea.
Two-time French champions Gueye scored four times in 33 appearances for French champions Paris Saint-Germain last season, as well as helping Senegal win the Africa Cup of Nations.
While Gueye would bring experience to Everton’s midfield, he caused controversy recently when refused to play in a match in which PSG wore jerseys with a rainbow symbol supporting LGBT rights.
Everton manager Frank Lampard also wants a striker after the Brazil international Richarlison moved to Tottenham and Dominic Calvert-Lewin was injured in training this week.
England striker Calvert-Lewin, who scored the winning goal in the 85th minute against Crystal Palace last season to secure Everton’s Premier League safety, is currently being assessed.
Everton have already shown interest in Chelsea striker Armando Brocha and Burnley striker Maxwell Cornet.
