Journalist Fabrizio Romano has talked about Moise Kean’s future at Everton and whether the Toffees want to sell him in the summer.
On the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast, Romano spoke about numerous potential transfers in European football, including Kean and his future at Everton.
The journalist stated that the Toffees are open to selling the Italian, while Paris Saint-Germain want to keep the forward, but talks won’t be easy because of Everton’s high asking price.
Should Everton sell Kean permanently?
Kean joined Everton in the summer of 2019 for an initial fee of £25.1m, but was loaned out to PSG last summer and has impressed in France, scoring 13 times in Ligue 1 as well as three times in the Champions League.
While talking about Kean’s situation, Romano stated: “The situation obviously is also related to what happens with [Mauro] Icardi, because maybe Paris Saint-Germain has to decide also about the situation of Icardi and then of Moise Kean, but they want to keep Moise Kean – and Moise Kean wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain.
“So they are talking with people close to the player and via his agent, the player wants to stay. But the negotiation with Everton is not easy about the fee, because Everton are open to [selling] the player. So they are 100% open to negotiate and to find an agreement, but they want around €45-50 million for Moise Kean.”
TIF Thoughts on Kean’s future at Everton…
As things stand, Everton have Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison as their two striker options, which shows that there is plenty of competition for Kean in that department if he were to fight for a place in the team.
Kean’s performances have clearly made a positive impression at PSG, so perhaps Everton feel they can earn more than his original transfer fee from his sale, which would be an impressive bit of business from the Toffees.
