Everton’s Moise Kean was the topic of discussion on the latest EFC 24/7 News Report from The Toffee Blues, which was hosted by Connor Williams.
Are Everton top six contenders?
However, it no longer appears to be straightforward, with his former club Juventus now wanting to bring him back to where his footballing career began, according to Tuttosport.
Before Carlo Ancelotti left Goodison Park, he invited PSG to make a formal bid for the Italian striker and despite his performances for the Toffees, he is still valued at £31.5 million by Transfermarkt.
Despite being just 21 years old, his time could be up on Merseyside, but who he could join is still up in the air, as Williams discussed.
“Moving onto Moise Kean and Juventus are interested in ambushing PSG’s move to sign Kean. The Italian international spent last season on loan at PSG and the French side are looking to rent his services again.
“However, Juventus want to reignite the deal and bring him back to where he came from. If they’re going to offer us money – because there’s no buyback clause, apparently – then I can see Everton taking that.
“I do think, though, if they offered money then Everton will accept it just because the player obviously doesn’t want to stay at Everton and Everton want to make money back on him.”
TIF’s thoughts on Kean leaving Everton…
Having arrived with a lot of hype having just scored six goals in 13 Serie A appearances for the Old Lady, it’s never worked out for Kean with him not appearing very well-suited to life in the Premier League, something his stats back up having found the back of the net just twice in 31 Premier League appearances.
The Italian appeared to thrive in a different environment as capably stood in for the often-injured Mauro Icardi, such is his talent – and that could be the best move for the striker should he refuse to return to Juventus, who sold him only in 2019.
