Everton boss Maco Silva has allowed Kieran Dowell to join Sheffield United on loan for the rest of the season but said the club would fight to keep hold of Idrissa Gana Gueye even as Paris Saint-Germain targets him.

When asked about the PSG interest on the defender, Silva said as was quoted in the Guardian.

“I have heard nothing about that but Gana is an important player for our squad,” Silva said.

Calvert-Lewin relishes Everton challenge

The 22-year-old has been manager Marco Silva's first choice ahead of Turkey international Cenk Tosun in the English Premier League team.

“We don’t want to lose him.”

Silva doesn’t plan for a busy transfer window but prefers to conduct business in summer.

“January is always a difficult market; sometimes you only need it if you have a bad injury or something special happens. The perfect decision would be one player to come and improve our squad but we have to be 100%, or at least 95%, sure that the signing would make an improvement,” Silva added.
