Everton could be offered the chance to sign Krzysztof Piątek in January, if they are willing to let misfiring striker Moise Kean leave.
Calciomercato claim a possible swap deal could be on the cards, with Kean having been linked with AC Milan recently.
The Italian is yet to score for the Toffees following his arrival in the summer.
There has been talk in recent days that he could return to his homeland in order to get regular minutes again, since Marco Silva has been using him sparingly of late.
Piatek has had a tough start to the new season, scoring just three goals in 12 appearances so far.
Gazzetta dello Sport have reported the Rossoneri could make him available for loan if he doesn’t start finding the net soon.
TBR’s view – A move that could work
A potential loan swap deal intriguing move, and one that could work for Everton.
Sending Kean back to Italy for regular minutes could be what he needs to regain some confidence, and in turn Everton would be getting someone who has scored 83 goals in 207 club career appearances.
Piatek banged them in when he first joined Milan, and may just be in need of a new environment.
At 24 he has more experience than Kean and could prove a hit.
Fans won’t want to see Kean depart, but if it meant Piatek joining then perhaps they’d become more open to the idea.
