Real Madrid have supposedly added Everton striker Moise Kean to their transfer shortlist.
According to Spanish outlet El Desmarque, the Italian is one of four names ‘marked in red’ for the future by los Blancos.
Apparently Erling Haaland, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Samu Chukwueze are the other individuals.
Florentino Perez is seemingly determined to boost Zinedine Zidane’s squad, which doesn’t look as strong as a couple of years ago.
The interest in Kean comes despite the fact he hasn’t scored for Everton in 11 appearances following his £27.5 million summer move from Juventus (BBC Sport).
The young Italian has been struggling especially in recent weeks, with Marco Silva preferring the likes of Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and even Cenk Tosun.
Other teams to have been linked in recent days are AC Milan, Sampdoria and AS Roma.
TBR’s view – Madrid surely the wrong move
Everton should think very carefully about potentially sending Kean to the Bernabeu on loan.
Right now the teenager needs minutes to give him the chance to score goals again and regain confidence – whether he would get the opportunities at Real is questionable.
Zidane loves Karim Benzema, but then there’s also the likes of Eden Hazard, Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes for competition.
