Speaking recently on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano discussed the future of Everton centre-forward Moise Kean.
Having made a £24.75 million move from Juventus to Everton back in the summer of 2019, Kean struggled to find any real form throughout his first season in England, scoring just two goals and providing two assists over 33 appearances in all competitions.
However, after Everton decided to send the €70 million-rated (£60 million) 20-year-old on loan to Paris Saint-Germain for the season, the Italian international appears to have flourished, scoring 10 goals over his 17 appearances in Ligue 1, averaging a WhoScored match rating of 7.03, as well as bagging three goals and providing one assist over his six Champions League appearances, averaging a 6.92 match rating.
As a result, it has been reported that PSG would be interested in making Kean’s loan deal a permanent move this summer, something which Romano, speaking on the Here We Go podcast, provided some insider information on.
He said: “He’s on loan without any buy option or clause or anything – he’s on a simple loan from Everton and this has been, in my opinion, a smart move from Everton because the player wasn’t performing. So, a really interesting move.
“Let’s see, because what we can add, behind the scenes, is that Juventus were trying last summer to re-sign Moise Kean on loan with a buy option – and Everton asked for €45 million as the buy-back clause.
“So, imagine that if you [already] have a clause for €45 million before looking at Kean this season, imagine next summer what’s going to happen. I’m 100% sure that Everton will fight to receive around €60-€70 million – or [will] keep the player.”
Should Everton sell Kean this summer?
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Moise Kean…
As such, from Romano’s comments, it would appear that Everton will be looking for between €60-€70 million (£52-£60 million) to part with Kean this summer, which, if they can achieve, would represent remarkable business from Everton – considering the 20-year-old has made a total of just 37 appearances for the Toffees and only cost the club £27 million a year and a half ago.
On the other hand, if Carlo Ancelotti’s side eventually do not decide to sell the forward, then it appears they will be gaining a much more experienced player than the one who left Liverpool at the beginning of the season.
