Everton have been linked with a move for Juventus youngster Moise Kean.
According to Calciomercato, the Toffees are ready to bid £26 million for the Italian teenager, who burst onto the scene in 2018/19.
Kean, a full Italy international currently on U21 European Championships duty, made 17 appearances for the Old Lady last term and scored seven goals – six of which came in Serie A in as many weeks following his full league debut against Udinese in March
He is viewed as one of Europe’s hottest prospects and Everton director of football Marcel Brands is ready to attempt an ambitious swoop.
Juventus are said to be desperate to keep hold of Kean, so the Toffees may struggle to bring a deal to fruition.
Kean would be the most exciting Everton signing in years.
The striker’s potential is vast, and he has already demonstrated his prowess in front of goal.
Everton are crying out for a dynamic forward having been toothless in attack at times last term.
Arguably, Kean would be the most anticipated signing at the club since Romelu Lukaku arrived on the scene from Chelsea in 2013 (initially on loan).
The Belgian enjoyed four years at Goodison Park and left the club in 2017 – his power, finishing and dynamism has yet to be replaced.
