Everton striker Moise Kean doesn’t know where he’ll ply his trade next season. The Toffees sent him on a two year loan to Juventus with the Italian club having an obligation to buy Kean permanently after a two year loan spell for €28 million.

Some would argue that Everton were fortunate to offload Kean as the Italian’s journey in England never took off. He found his feet again at PSG, where he spent the 2020-21 season on loan. Kean scored 17 goals in 41 outings for the Parisiens which prompted PSG to consider Kean’s signing on a permanent basis.

However, Kean’s boyhood club came calling and he moved back to Juventus. Kean was expected to settle in Turin and be the long term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who left for Manchester United. The Bianconeri signed Dusan Vlahovic in the winter transfer window and since then he has been Juventus’ unquestioned starter with Kean further slipping down the pecking order.

In 42 games for the Old Lady, Kean scored just six goals and provided three assists. The Italian started just 12 Serie A games and now Allegri wants to offload the 22 year old this summer. However, it isn’t as simple as it looks.

Everton striker Moise Kean doesn’t have a future at Juventus

Everton have refused to negotiate new terms of the deal meaning that Juventus will have to pay €28 million to Everton, acquire him permanently and then sell him off. According to Tutto Mercato Web, Kean is no longer considered a part of the Juventus project. The Everton striker will not return to Merseyside that is for sure.

The Juve hierarchy has been trying to offload him and work out different formulas to get rid of the Italian striker. There was interest from Premier League clubs but no deal has progressed. PSG have always admired Kean but they have not made any approaches so far.

The Serie A outfit also thought of purchasing Kean permanently and offering him in a cash plus player deal to Atletico Madrid as Juventus wanted to bring down the asking price of Morata.

As things stand, the Old Lady would wish for a suitor to pay at least €28 million so that Everton can be paid the decided sum. Given the lacklustre performances of Kean last season, getting €28 million for the 22 year old isn’t an easy task.

On the other hand, if Juve do buy Kean permanently, Everton will receive a welcome cash injection that will help Frank Lampard in carrying out transfer business this summer.
