Everton are willing to sell Jonjoe Kenny this summer, but The Sun on Sunday (27/9; page 61) reports that the Toffees want at least £10 million for the right-back.
Kenny has been in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans following his return from a loan spell in Germany. However, he has not made it off the bench in any of Everton’s first three Premier League games.
The 23-year-old has been involved in the Carabao Cup. But it appears that Everton are prepared to let him leave Goodison Park in this window.
The Sun on Sunday (27/9; page 61) reports that the Toffees could sell Kenny. It is suggested that they want an eight-figure fee for the academy graduate.
The report may come as a blow to former club Schalke. It is noted that the Bundesliga side would like to take him back on another loan. But Everton have reportedly decided that they would be open to letting him leave permanently.
TBR View: Kenny’s permanent exit may be best for all parties
It remains to be seen if a suitable bid comes in for Kenny. But perhaps it would be fair to say that a move away could be best for all parties.
Kenny – who earns £15,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – is at a stage of his career where he will want to play regularly. With Seamus Coleman starting the season brilliantly, regular game-time at Goodison Park looks unlikely.
Meanwhile, the Sunday People (27/9; page 57) suggested that Ancelotti wants to sign a new right-back. That certainly looks to be an ominous sign for the youngster.
