Everton striker Moise Kean is a player that has drawn the interest of newly promoted sides Fulham and Nottingham Forest. The 22 year old striker has had a torrid time in Turin and is keen to put an end to his struggles in Italy.

After a convincing loan spell at PSG, Kean had no intentions to stay at Everton. Juventus came with an exquisitely convoluted plan of signing him on a two year loan with an obligation to buy instead of giving straight cash to the Toffees. As it stands, this plan has now backfired as Juventus, unimpressed by Kean’s performances, are finding it difficult to offload Kean.

In order to offload Kean, the Bianconeri either had to renegotiate the deal structure with Everton or find a buyer who would be willing to pay the €28 million. Everton does not want to renegotiate a deal leaving Juve with only one option.

PSG have always shown interest in Kean and the player likes the idea of returning to Paris. However, there also has been interest from the Premier League. Fulham and Nottingham Forest viewed Kean as a target; however, Kean isn’t convinced with the idea of joining either side.

According to Corriere Dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Kean has turned down approaches from Fulham and Forest. Fulham boss Marco Silva would have been keen to reunite with the Italian striker. When Silva was the Everton manager, he had signed Kean from Juventus but never gave him a proper chance to flourish.

Kean is eyeing a return to Paris, where he was in the best form of his career, scoring 17 goals in 41 games. The Old Lady wants to ship the striker out this summer and options are being explored. If Juventus decide to activate the buy clause a season earlier, the Toffees may miss out on the €4 million payment for the second year of the loan.

However, that would mean that Juve will end up paying €28 million to Everton which will boost the club coffers during a delicate financial situation. It has been suggested that Kean could be part of a swap deal that would see Leandro Parades move to Turin and Kean go back to Paris.

For any such deal to happen, Bianconeri will first have to buy Kean from Everton and then carry out the swap deal with PSG. In any case, the 22 year old isn’t appealed to the idea of returning to the Premier League.
