Everton striker Moise Kean wants to return to Italy to give himself a chance of making Italy’s squad for Euro 2020.
The striker moved to Goodison Park from Juventus in a £25m deal this summer but has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League.
He is yet to score in 11 appearances and was recently fined for turning up late to a team meeting, something that has already occurred previously in his career.
He currently finds himself playing a substitute’s role at best at Goodison Park, despite Everton’s lack of a proven goalscorer.
His situation has sparked plenty of suggestions that a move back to his homeland could be on the cards in January and Il Messaggero are the latest to add to them.
According to the Italian newspaper, Kean wants to return to Italy to try and play his way into Roberto Mancini’s squad for Euro 2020.
Roma are keen on trying to sign him up, as he fits into their policy of only signing players permanently if they are 27 or under.
The club has ‘excellent relations’ with Kean’s agent Mino Raiola, and it would reportedly cost them €30m to pry him away from Everton. It’s a ‘situation to be monitored’ as far as they are concerned.
Everton’s potential stance in this isn’t mentioned, and that’s likely because they won’t entertain any interest in Kean full stop.
They worked hard to get him from Juventus in the summer; indeed, he was considered something a coup, and the sounds coming out of the club are positive around him.
While he has undoubtedly struggled, it is unlikely they are willing to give up so soon, and this is more likely whisperings from Raiola rather than anything too serious happening.
