Koeman has only signed the goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg from Fulham for an undisclosed fee since moving from Southampton in June. The former Leicester assistant manager Steve Walsh joined as director of football last week, which is now likely to signal the green light for Everton in the transfer market.

Gueye joined Aston Villa from Lille last summer and made 38 appearances, scoring once, as Villa were relegated from the Premier League, winning just three games.
