However, we’ve now received an intriguing update on a player who could leave the Toffees.
One of the biggest departures from Goodison Park this summer could be James Rodriguez who has attracted the interest of AC Milan.
Though, to continue the Italian theme, Moise Kean could actually be set to stay in Merseyside.
The Italy international spent last season on loan at PSG and they were keen on bringing him back next term.
They’d made a loan proposal but in a fresh twist to the tale, Alan Myers provided a short 11-word update on his future.
Taking to Twitter, he said: “Everton are not interested in a loan deal for Moise Kean.”
With that in mind, it may take a permanent price of £40m to move him away from Everton.
When it first became apparent that PSG were hoping to sign the forward on temporary terms again, fans were particularly aggrieved with the Everton hierarchy.
They thought that they were being given the run-around by one of the game’s elite clubs, being made to look like fools in the transfer market.
It was difficult to argue with that assessment. With Kean’s value so high, cashing in on him now could have funded some much-needed recruitment on the transfer front.
Considering how oil-rich the Parisians are, they shouldn’t have had any troubles negotiating a price for the youngster’s services.
Consequently, the decision from Benitez and co to cut short the potential of another loan spell should make supporters pleased. Indeed, the immediate reaction on social media supplements that viewpoint.
One Everton fan claimed it was “excellent” while another said it was the best news they’d heard out of Finch Farm in a long time. A further supporter suggested they should keep him at the club, evidently rating the Italian’s abilities.
A loan deal would have been particularly foolish and if a tempting bid doesn’t come in, Benitez may as well keep him.
After all, this is a player with immense potential and someone who starred at the highest level last season.
Kean found the net against Barcelona in the Champions League last term on his way to scoring 19 times in all competitions.
To loan somebody with those numbers out would be a baffling situation. Everton are taking the right steps.
