Everton footballer Idrissa Gana Gueye is currently very happy playing in the midfielder with teammate Andre Gomes.

The Senegalese player is very excited to what he and his midfielder partner can do for the Blues in the future.

“Every midfielder we have is capable of playing in this team but the manager has to make his choice,” Gana told the club’s official website.

“Andre Gomes brings something special, with his technique and the way he keeps the ball.”

“Of course, we knew he was a good player, he came from Barcelona – and you know the types of players who go to Barcelona,” he added.

“We try to work together to help the team defensively and offensively – and it is going well.”

“He is helping us a lot so, hopefully, he will continue his form and carry on helping the team,” Gana continued.

“All our new signings have quality and they are bringing it to the team,” added Gana, who has reunited with [Lucas] Digne five years after the pair played together for Ligue 1 club Lille.”

“That is helping us and we have a good spirit in the squad. Everyone is focused on what we have to do and that is why we are playing well,” he concluded.
