Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes has been given more time to decide his future after Paris Saint-Germain joined Everton and Napoli in the race to sign the Brazilian defender.
The 22-year-old was expected to make a decision this week but the French champions have shown late interest and delayed the next move in his career.
PSG’s stalwart centre-back and fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva is out of contract and the club see Magalhaes as a potential replacement.
Everton have been battling with Napoli and two other unconfirmed clubs since the Ligue 1 season ended prematurely in April.
Sky Sports News reported in June that another Premier League club had made a bid for Lille’s player of the year, thought to be in excess of £22m.
Gabriel starred in a Lille side that finished fourth in Ligue 1, helping them secure a place in next season’s Europa League.
He joined the French club in 2017 after arriving from Brazil and has made 52 appearances since.
