Fabrizio Romano has revealed that there have been no discussions yet about the possibility of Moise Kean joining Paris Saint-Germain on a permanent deal.
Kean joined the Toffees in the summer of 2019 in a deal that could rise up to as much as £27.5m, however, he didn’t exactly hit the ground running during his first season in England, scoring just two goals and chipping in with two assists across all competitions.
In order to try and find some form, he was shipped out to the French side this summer where things have gone a little better, with ten goals and an assist so far this campaign – form that might force them to consider buying him outright.
But speaking to Give Me Sport, Romano revealed that there is yet to be any talk on that front, and that if there was, it would take something pretty big in order to convince Everton to let go of him, as they still think he has a future at the club.
He said: “What I’m told about Kean is that there is no negotiation between Paris Saint-Germain and Everton, and yes, for sure Paris Saint-Germain would love to keep the player but Everton have always been so clear, they want him back at the club. So if Paris Saint-Germain wants to sign him, they will have to make an important bid and convince Everton.”
Would you mind if Everton sold Moise Kean to PSG permanently?
No, he's not that good
Yes, he's a class player
TIF Thoughts on Romano’s Moise Kean comments…
Romano’s words kind of reveal a conundrum on the part of Mauricio Pochettino’s men. On one hand, you want him to do well whilst Kean is at the club right now, but if he carries on this sort of form, then they may be forced to pay through the nose in order to keep him there.
And that puts Everton in a win-win situation – either they get a player who is back in form and can help take them to the next level as a club, or they’ll be in a position to sell him off and invest the funds to bring in someone who can.
