The Daily Mail had linked the Senegalese international with Arsenal in recent days, but it seems the holding midfield player will sign a £4million a year deal, keeping him at Goodison Park until 2022.
There may still be potential for the 28 year old to make a switch to the Gunners in the future though. Gueye is believed to have a “gentleman’s agreement” with the Toffees that will allow him to move to a Champions League club if such an offer is made.
The Gunners boss is still likely to be keen to strengthen the centre of his midfield. He revealed back in February that he had missed out on N’Golo Kante twice; a player that Gueye has been likened to by pundits.
