Yesterday a report surfaced that Juventus are thinking of creative ways to bring Moise Kean to Turin. The Everton striker is currently on loan at PSG and the Les Parisiens also are in love with the 21-year-old.
Everton wants to cash in on Kean whose stock has skyrocketed on the basis of this season’s impressive outings in the Paris shirt. The Toffees could make a significant profit from the player’s sale and use it further for transfers. The Italian forward is very happy in Paris and wouldn’t mind continuing at PSG beyond this season.
PSG Sporting director Leonardo has already contacted Kean’s agent, Mino Raiola, to discuss the possible transfer. However, the finances of the deal will have to be worked out with Everton at the end of the season and the Royal Blues won’t be willing to accept a low offer. Everton’s asking price estimates go from £ 40 million to £60 million.
Meanwhile, Juventus remain alert to pounce on him if the Ligue 1 giants fail to do the negotiations. In fact, the Bianconeri are ready to offer a player plus cash deal for Kean. Juventus want to reduce their wage bill and are happy to part ways with Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot. The Serie A title holders are ready to offer one of these two players to Everton.
Everton will only consider a part exchange Moise Kean deal if Juventus defender is included
Interestingly, Rabiot has been a target for the Toffees but as per another report, Everton may not entertain such an exchange unless a Juventus defender is included in the deal. According to Calciomercato, Everton will only consider a part-exchange deal for Kean if Merih Demiral is included. Another report from Le10 Sport says Juventus are making plans for the team if Paulo Dybala or Alvaro Morata leave. In such a case, signing Kean becomes an absolute priority.
Demiral was linked with a move last summer but the chances of the Turk being included in any such exchange deal are unlikely. Juve are planning for life after Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci who are aged 36 and 33 respectively. Demiral and Matthijs de Ligt are touted as long term successors, safeguarding Juventus at the heart of the defence.
Even though the Italian striker is happy in Ligue 1, Juventus remain hopeful that they can bring back the striker to Allianz Stadium. As for PSG, Mauricio Pochettino is leaving no opportunity of praising Kean, sending a message how much the Parisiens admire him.
Moise has shown, since his arrival, that he has potential and also a present. He can still improve because he is young but he shows that he can play as a point and as a winger. We are happy with him and he has great potential (via Le10 Sport)
The scope of Everton keeping hold of Kean is as rare as Unicorns existing in the real world. PSG and Juventus will battle it out in the summer and it will be the case who convinces Kean more about his role in their respective projects.
Should Moise Kean stay in Paris or go to Juventus?
