PSG Mercato: Everton FC Sets Their Price for Moise Kean; Leonardo Not Optimistic of Permanent Deal

Moise Kean has rediscovered the form that he had with Juventus FC, where he scored eight goals in 21 fixtures as a teenager. The Italy international then moved to Everton FC, where he struggled to maintain his Juve form. 

Kean only scored four goals in 37 fixtures for The Toffees, and after one season in the Premier League, the 20-year-old went out on loan. The striker arrived at Paris Saint-Germain for the 2020-21 season to replace Edinson Cavani and compete with Mauro Icardi for the striker role. 

Playing alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappé has helped Kean rediscover his Juve form as he’s scored 14 goals in 25 fixtures for the capital club. Furthermore, Kean scored a header in PSG’s 4-1 first-leg victory over FC Barcelona. 

The strikers’ performance in the French capital has caused some supporters to think about keeping him long-term. Kean’s loan didn’t come with an option to buy clause. As a result, Everton is putting their price on the 20-year-old if PSG wants to keep him. 

Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano (via RMC Sport) reports that it will take €80-million for the Premier League side to part ways with Kean. The French media outlet adds that sporting director Leonardo isn’t optimistic about a permanent transfer for Kean. 

PSG supporters might have to enjoy Kean while he’s here because it won’t go past June if these reports are accurate.
