Moise Kean has already scored as many league goals for his loan club Paris Saint-Germain than he managed in an entire season at Everton last term.
The Italian scored twice as PSG defeated Dijon 2-0 last night. The young talent scored against Newcastle and Bournemouth for Everton last season, in what was a disappointing debut campaign at Goodison Park.
But he is clearly enjoying life more in the French capital and speaking to the press after the game last night he made that quite clear.
“It’s going well. The squad and the staff are wonderful,” Kean told Canal +, as relayed by Goal. “We are working hard to move forward. I trained a lot this week to be able to score and help the team.
“The second goal is Neymar who gives me a good pass. He could have shot, but he gave me the ball and I thank him very much. My favorite position is to score goals. I’m ready to play wherever the coach decides. I give my best for the team.”
Everton fans expected fireworks from Kean last season after his eye-catching move from Juventus but, for whatever reason, it never really clicked for him on Merseyside.
He made more headlines off the pitch than on it and whilst many Evertonians were ready to give Kean a second chance, the loan move to PSG simply ended up making too much sense not to let happen.
Now, it seems he might be ready to showcase his talents under the management of Thomas Tuchel and Everton will perhaps end up feeling like they have egg on their face.
However, the best-case scenario from all of this is that Kean thrives and Everton can sell him on whilst recouping their own transfer fee on the talent.
Last night was a good step in the right direction.
