Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that a strong pre-season could potentially save Moise Kean’s Everton career.
Such was Kean’s wretched goalscoring form in his first season with the Toffees, he was loaned out to PSG last term.
But the Italian quickly rediscovered his goal-touch, scoring an impressive 17 times for Mauricio Pochettino’s team as they reached the Champions League semi-finals and won two domestic cups.
Following his outstanding loan spell in the French capital, Kean has been linked with a return.
However, Kean has featured heavily in pre-season for Everton, and scored the winning goal against Club Universidad Nacional last Wednesday.
Despite his struggles under the previous regime, it appears that he’s been offered a clean slate by Rafael Benitez, which could resurrect the striker’s Toffees career.
Bent exclusively told Football FanCast:
“With the new manager going in there, everyone has different opinions. If he does well in pre-season, then maybe he’s got a future there.
“We need someone up front to help DCL, so hopefully he does well in pre-season, you never know.”
