TBR View: Moise Kean could be the key to Everton getting their hands on Gianluigi Donnarumma

Everton’s Italian striker might be the perfect way to reduce the cost of bringing in the Milan talent.

Everton’s recent link (as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport) with AC Milan goalkeeping sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma has had plenty of fans talking in recent days. 

However, among many stumbling blocks to a deal, will be AC Milan’s asking price for the 21-year-old. Despite the Italian youngster being out of contract in 2021, Milan will not be ready to sell him on the cheap. 

Calciomercato reported a potential €50 million (£46.2m) asking price last summer and the Rossoneri will likely want a similar figure.  

There is, however, one way Everton could potentially reduce the cost massively. Unfortunately, it would essentially mean giving up on Moise Kean.

It was an eye-catching arrival, considering Kean’s reputation as one of Europe’s best young strikers. 

 

But the Italian has struggled to settle in his first season at Goodison Park, scoring just once in 26 games for the club. Whilst most Evertonians would love to see Kean get another season to try and fire on Merseyside, swapping him for Donnarumma would be an attractive option. 

Milan are also known to be very keen on the striker. As reported by Calciomercato, the Italian’s agent Mino Raiola was opening negotiations with the San Siro club regarding a potential move. 

Kean is also known to be an AC Milan fan whilst Raiola represents both players. 

With Everton’s current starting strikers Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin both in fine form, Kean might be considered the perfect makeweight to secure the arrival of one of Europe’s top goalkeepers.
