Journalist Fabrizio Romano has recently provided an update about Everton’s Moise Kean.
Romano appeared on the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast and he discussed multiple potential transfers in European football. One player that he focused on was Moise Kean and the journalist gave some updates about the Italian’s future at Everton.
Romano claimed that Paris Saint-Germain are now looking to re-sign the striker on a loan deal and while Carlo Ancelotti has left Everton, he actually wanted to part ways with his compatriot at Goodison Park too.
Does Kean have a future at Everton?
Kean did join the Toffees from Juventus in the summer of 2019, but he was loaned out to PSG in the summer of 2020. He did impress at the Parc de Princes last season, as he scored 13 Ligue 1 goals for the side.
Romano stated that while PSG want him on another loan, Everton haven’t made the decision about whether they’d let him go or not.
He said: “It’ll be key to understand who will be the new manager to decide about Moise Kean, because Moise Kean is coming back to Everton after his loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain – but Paris Saint-Germain want him back on loan, so there is no proposal for €40 million as I see around – fake news.
“No proposal to sign him on a permanent deal for €40-45 million – not true. Paris Saint-Germain are discussing with Everton on a potential another season on loan, so a simple loan for one more season. Let’s see what Everton will answer, because they always wanted like €50 million to sell Moise Kean or nothing. Ancelotti was prepared to sell Moise Kean. Now, with the new manager, we’ll see what Everton will decide.”
TIF Thoughts on Kean’s future…
Considering 21-year-old Kean’s contributions in Ligue 1 during the 2020/21 season, the Italian is still a pretty capable player.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin had been Everton’s chief goalscorer in the 2020/21 league season, as he scored 16 times. No one else scored more than seven league goals, which shows that they were heavily dependent on the Englishman for the goals (as per Whoscored).
So having another striker option may not be a bad idea for Everton, as Kean’s stint at PSG has showed that he can score goals. Perhaps, Kean could take some burden off Calvert-Lewin.
