Everton striker Moise Kean wants a return to Juventus this summer and his agent, Mino Raiola, is working to ‘satisfy’ that desire.
That’s according to Tuttosport, who say that the Italian champions are also open to him returning but are only willing/able to sanction a loan deal.
Kean left Juve a year ago in a €30m move to Goodison Park and has struggled to settle on Merseyside, failing to establish himself under Marco Silva or Carlo Ancelotti.
His situation does not look like improving in the near future with Dominic Calvert-Lewin continuing to impress as Ancelotti’s chosen number nine.
Thus, several reports over the last few weeks have indicated that he wants to return to Italy to get his career back on track and Juventus, specifically their new manager Andrea Pirlo, would be happy to take him.
They’re short on cash, though, and instead would prefer to take Kean on a loan deal, preferably over two years, something that Everton simply aren’t that interested in.
Tuttosport back all that up today, stating that any move for Kean is likely to happen at the end of the transfer window, which is something we’ve heard several times as well.
They explain that while Kean’s name ‘does not stop swirling’ around Juventus, they have more pressing matters to attend to at present.
The Italian giants are certainly open to a move as it would give Pirlo ‘more tactical solutions’, but they are ‘not giving up an inch’ on the strategy they’ve adopted so far.
They can only afford a loan deal, perhaps over two years, with a redemption obligation tagged on at the end of it.
Everton’s stance on that isn’t mentioned, but the striker is very keen on the move and even a goal against Fleetwood in midweek hasn’t changed his thinking.
Thus, Mino Raiola is working to make it happen, with it stated clearly that he ‘does not intend’ to look at any other option than a return to his former club.
So, Raiola and Juventus have to work out a deal with Everton, although the situation seems to be at the same stage it’s been for a while. Until they can convince the Toffees to sanction a loan, which doesn’t seem in their favour, nothing will happen.
