The news that Moise Kean was dropped from the Everton first-team squad last weekend because of a disciplinary matter has quickly become big news in the striker’s homeland.
The £29 million summer signing (as reported by The Guardian) has struggled to find his feet since arriving at Goodison Park. The 19-year-old is still yet to score and his performances have certainly not warranted goals.
The latest setback in his career has immediately seen him linked with a potential January exit from Goodison Park. Calciomercato reported AC Milan as a possible destination earlier in the week.
Now it seems as though Sampdoria are looking to make a move.
Telenord in Italy is reporting that the Serie A side are looking to bring in a striker to help solve their goal-shy woes. Kean is being lined up as a potential loan recruit, as he looks to rekindle some form and perhaps force his way back into Roberto Mancini’s plans for Italy ahead of Euro 2020.
Everton are unlikely to sell Kean in January. He is a major asset and one in which they have a lot of faith.
However, a loan deal might not be the worst idea. At the moment, Kean is clearly struggling on Merseyside and Everton are struggling to get the best out of him.
Perhaps some time back in Italy is exactly what the teenager needs to find a spark before returning to Everton.
Whatever the case, Everton fans will be hoping Kean does eventually find his way into form at Goodison Park.
