Report: Everton keen on £31m-rated Juventus striker Moise Kean

Juventus want to insert a buy-back clause in Moise Kean’s contract.

Juventus striker Moise Kean is being pursued by a number of clubs this summer. According to The Daily Mail, Everton are one of several clubs eager to sign Kean, who is rated at £31m by Juventus.

The Italian champions will reportedly get Kean to sign a new long-term deal until 2024. But then, in a strange turn of events, they will sell him to a club outside of Italy.

Juventus will include a buy-back clause of around £40.5m after selling him for £31m. Everton are one of the clubs interested in becoming Kean’s next destination.

The 19-year-old is already making waves in the senior game, scoring seven goals last season in 17 matches for Juventus. This included six goals in 13 Serie A games as his stock continues to rise.

But Juventus are still willing to let him leave. Everton are looking for a new striker and believe that Kean fits the bill. The Italy international, who already has two goals in three senior caps, could be their long-term answer up front.

 

TBR’s view

Kean is an exciting young striker with a big future in the game. Despite still being a teenager, he has already started to prove his goalscoring prowess in one of Europe’s top leagues.

The Toffees desperately need a new striker. Oumar Niasse and Cenk Tosun are not up to the required standard, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goalscoring record could be improved.

This report notes that Everton see Kean as their new Romelu Lukaku. During his time at Everton, Lukaku scored 87 goals. If Kean can replicate that success at Goodison Park, he will justify his £31m price tag and Everton should make a profit on him too if Juventus want him back.
