PSG are reportedly keen on making Moise Kean’s loan stay permanent this summer, which would be a huge mistake by Everton sporting director Marcel Brands.
According to Fabrizio Romano, PSG are negotiating with Everton to sign Kean on a permanent deal after his successful loan spell and Everton are open to selling him this summer.
The 21-year-old joined the Toffees from Juventus in the summer of 2019 in a deal worth £25.1m and looked to be an exciting signing, considering he had hit eight goals in just 21 appearances for the Italian giants.
However, he struggled to impress in his first season at Goodison Park, managing just four goals and two assists in 37 appearances, although the vast majority of his appearances would come from the bench.
He was subsequently sent on loan to PSG for the 2020/21 campaign, where he has been a key figure in Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season, contributing 17 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions.
Only Kylian Mbappe has scored more goals for Les Parisiens this season, which emphasises just how dangerous he can be when given regular opportunities in the first team.
Kean was only 19 when he joined Everton and had very little time to adapt to Premier League football, especially with last season being so stop-start due to the season’s suspension.
Therefore, he deserves a real chance to show what he can do in this Everton side, and it would be a mistake to let him go so early in his career, especially when he has shown what he can do with a top side PSG. Everton fans would rightly be fuming if the club sold such a star asset to another club without giving him a second chance to prove himself after his excellent season in Paris.
Former PSG star Pauleta was full of praise for Kean earlier this year, saying:
“He’s a very talented player, a very physical young player.”
Everton managed just 47 goals in the Premier League this season, with 16 of those scored by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, so you could definitely argue that they could do with another goalscoring striker in their side next season and Kean could be the ideal man to step up.
Therefore, Brands shouldn’t allow him to leave this summer, as it could prove to be a huge mistake in the future.
