Everton striker Moise Kean has joined Juventus on a two year loan deal with an obligation to buy depending on certain conditions. The Italian striker was pushing to leave Merseyside this summer.
The transfer window is coming to a close but the rumours for different clubs and their transfer targets won’t stop anytime soon. This transfer window has seen generational stars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi leave their club to seek pastures new. We have also seen talented stars like Gianluigi Donnarumma, Memphis Depay, David Alaba, Sergio Aguero, Sergio Ramos, etc leave on a free this transfer window.

Despite clubs being hit financially by the impact of Covid-19, many clubs have been active. Conducting smart business is essential now more than it has ever been. Twenty of Europe’s biggest clubs lost more than €1bn in revenue over the past year as the game struggles with the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a study by the market analyst KPMG.
Everton have conducted smart business so far, bringing in the likes of Andros Townsend, Asmir Begovic, Demarai Gray and Andy Lonergan for a combined total of £1.6m. Begovic, Lonergan and Townsend were snapped up for free from Bournemouth, West Brom and Crystal Palace respectively. Adding quality depth to the positions that needed some change this summer.
Everton striker Moise Kean will move to Juventus
The Toffees were also able to reduce their wage bill by letting go of players who were deemed surplus to requirements such as Theo Walcott, Joshua King, Yannick Bolasie, Muhamed Besic, and Bernard. Another player who has been granted a move away from the club is the Italian forward Moise Kean.
After Ronaldo’s departure from Juventus, the Old Lady were in dire need of new attacking reinforcements. It is understood that the deal will be an initial two-year loan with an obligation to buy for £17m in 2023 should certain conditions be met. The Everton striker made the move to Goodison Park from Juventus in the summer of 2019.
Kean enjoyed a fine season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain last term and now was the perfect time for Everton to cash in on him considering that he hasn’t lived up to the expectations of the Everton fans since his transfer from Juventus for £27.5 million. In this Covid hit market, Everton being able to recoup even half of what they paid for Kean should be seen as a positive.
Another player linked with a move away from Everton is the Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez. Everton look like they have finished their transfer business for this summer at least and have looked solid in their first 3 games in the Premier League, racking up 7 points out of 9 so far.
