Everton are reportedly in the hunt for Juventus forward Moise Kean. As reported by Calciomercato, Everton are keen on a potential £26 million bid for the Italian international.
The 19-year-old has broken onto the scene over the past six months and Juventus are hoping to keep him. However, with big transfer plans of their own, the Bianconeri may have to consider a deal at the right price.
Everton also have an ace up their sleeve in any pursuit of Kean. The teenager is represented by controversial agent Mino Raiola.
The Italian recently had his suspension from FIFA lifted and is free to practice again. Whilst not everyone’s cup of tea, he does have a strong working relationship with Everton director of football Marcel Brands.
Raiola has had plenty of success with Dutch football talent and it is how he and Brands developed a rapport.
As reported by Sky Sports last summer, Everton were hopeful of working with Raiola to bring in new players with Brands in charge of transfers.
In the case of Kean, that could finally be an area that Everton explore.
