Moise Kean is desperate to leave Everton and his mind is already on life away from Goodison Park, according to Michael Ball.

Kean joined the Toffees in a deal worth an initial £25.1million from Italian giants Juventus two years ago, when Marco Silva was manager.

However, the frontman has failed to hit the heights many expected and scored just four goals in 37 appearances.

Do you think Moise Kean should be sold by Everton?





Kean’s poor form in front of goal resulted in Everton sanctioning a season-long loan move to Paris Saint-Germain, where he excelled and bagged 19 goals in 45 outings.

The French giants are hoping to negotiate another temporary deal for the striker, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, but the Merseyside club would rather get Kean off the wage bill permanently.

Kean has three years remaining on his £53,173-per-week contract and will struggle to dislodge Dominic Calvert-Lewin as Everton’s leading marksman after he found the back of the net on 21 occasions last season.

While former Everton full-back Ball would like to see Kean battle for a place in new boss Rafa Benitez’s preferred starting line-up, he feels the Italian is not interested in succeeding at Goodison Park.

To kick off this quiz on Everton transfers, which player was the Toffees' club-record transfer fee paid on according to Transfermarkt?

Ball exclusively told TIF: “I feel, mentally, he’s probably already left Everton Football Club, unfortunately.

“It’s up to Everton to now get the maximum fee available.”
