According to Sky Italy reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, Everton have made contact with Juventus over the availability of Moise Kean.
The 19-year-old striker enjoyed a breakthrough 2018/19 campaign with the Italian giants, winning the Serie A title and netting six goals in 13 appearances – he found the back of the net seven times in all competitions.
Already a senior Italy international, Kean is one of the most exciting young players in Europe and would be a major coup for Everton if the Toffees get their hands on the teenager.

He is currently starring for the Italy Under-21 side at the European Championships this summer, where he is part of arguably the competition’s most dangerous team.
The Merseysiders already have excellent young performers such as Richarlison, Lucas Digne and Jordan Pickford, so if they could add Kean to that bunch they would have a hugely impressive, and sustainable team.
Would Kean be a good signing for Everton? Let’s see what the writers of Football FanCast have to say…
“Signing Kean would be an almighty setback for Calvert-Lewin. Everton clearly need more in attack but signing a teenager of this calibre should be forgotten about considering they already have a talented young forward coming through the ranks. If the Toffees are to launch an assault on the top six they need someone with a lot more firepower than the Juventus man possesses. It would be a great signing for the future, but Everton should be thinking about the present.”
“Signing one of the brightest prospects from one of the biggest clubs in the world in Moise Kean would be a fantastic move PR wise for Everton. However, if Juventus are willing to let the 19-year-old go then you have to wonder why. Could it be that they’ve seen something the Toffees haven’t? Kean wouldn’t be cheap for Marcel Brands and Marco Silva either and for me, a permanent transfer would just about be too much of a risk.”
“I think this deal makes so much sense for Everton. Kean has all the potential in the world, but even if he doesn’t reach the heights that are expected of him Everton are signing a player who has had an exceptional goalscoring ratio last season for both club and country. The Toffees are in need of a striker and this signing could be a brilliant piece of business.”
