Moise Kean’s time at Everton continues to hit the headlines and this week fresh reports have emerged over a potential summer exit…
It’s claimed that Carlo Ancelotti cannot give him the game time that he desires after both Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin hit 13 each for the season, meaning he’s likely to continue to be third or fourth choice.
The Italian outfit are lacking in homegrown talent and that’s something the three-time international could resolve having come through the system in Turin.
Kean has found life at Goodison Park very tough in the year that he’s been in Merseyside – ranging from a few disciplinary issues to being the substitute that got substituted.
Overall, two goals in 33 appearances isn’t enough to fill you with confidence that he could one day push ahead of the aforementioned Everton duo.
However, it won’t be a good look if the Toffees cut ties with him just yet as at only 20, adapting to new surroundings can be quite tough and he should be given support and guidance rather than slinging him aside.
If the club were to move him on, then question marks but be hanging over director of football Marcel Brands’ head after a very disappointing summer of business last year.
Everton have lost around £33.5m in total from this Kean saga already when you factor in the Italian youngster sitting on a cool £110k-per-week on top of the transfer fee.
Ancelotti has labelled Kean a “great talent” and claimed that he’s going to be part of the squad next season whilst teammate Theo Walcott believes the striker is a “workaholic” who is “probably the strongest guy I’ve ever come across.”
So perhaps there’s a chance we do see Kean around in the upcoming campaign. If not, then should Brands be trusted with his activity this time around?
AND in other news, Everton target Bundesliga brute who is shades of Idrissa Gueye…
