Mino Raiola is still working on a deal to move Moise Kean to Roma from Everton this summer.
It is looking increasingly likely that Everton will give up on the Italian international after a debut season marred by poor form and recent off-field controversies.
Calciomercato is now reporting on the superagent’s latest move to try and secure Kean’s departure back to Italy.
It is suggested Roma could pay an ‘expensive’ loan fee to take Kean from Everton for one or two year seasons. At the end of that period, there would be a buying option of €20-€22 million (£18-£20m). It is not confirmed if that would be an obligatory option for the Giallorossi or selective, based on his performances at the Stadio Olimpico.
Kean is widely believed to be open to a Roma move, as his best friend Nicolo Zaniolo is at the capital club.
Everton’s reported (Sky Sports) £27.5 million move for the Italian last summer was heralded as a coup by many but the youngster has struggled to settle in English football and his off-field antics have not helped him win over fans, many of which were willing to give him a chance of making it big at Goodison Park.
It seems the Toffees may need to accept making a loss on Kean if they are to scrub his wages from the books on Merseyside. Perhaps a move to Roma is indeed the best option for all interested parties.
