Everton will make a bid of £27 million for Juventus starlet Moise Kean this summer, according to Calciomercato.
The 19-year-old scored one goal and registered a single assist during 2018/19 and is currently on international duty with the Italy Under-21s at the European Championships.
Kean is seen as one of Europe’s brightest young prospects.
The report suggests that Juventus will reject Everton’s initial bid – for now – with the Old Lady unsure whether to sell their player just yet.
Kean has featured largely as a striker for the Serie A champions, although he can play out wide too.
He has an electric turn of pace, comes alive in the penalty area and likes to run at opposition defenders.
Everton boss Marco Silva will go in search of several new players this summer.
His team finished eighth last season and the next challenge is to ensure qualification for European competition.
The signing of Kean would certainly make outsiders stand up and take notice of Everton.
It doesn’t look like he will come cheaply though, which isn’t really a major surprise.
The initial offer of £27 million looks likely to be rejected, with Everton now facing a decision over whether to bid more.
He would certainly bolster the Toffees squad. Dominic Calvert-Lewin often led the line of his own last season and he could do with some competition.
At 19-years-old Kean would be a quality investment for the future at Goodison Park and Silva should do his utmost to land the Italian.
