Everton are refusing to negotiate with Juventus over the deal for Moise Kean but the Italian club could be bailed out by West Ham United.

That’s according to Corriere Dello Sport, who say the Toffees are refusing to ‘give discounts’ on the player this summer.

They explain that Kean is very much up for sale, with Juventus happy to get rid so they can raise funds for their own transfer business.

To do that, though, they will have to find an agreement with Everton, who still own the striker and loaned him to Juventus last summer.

That deal was a two-year loan deal for an initial €4m, plus an obligation to buy for €28m and a further €3m in bonuses that will ‘easily’ be met.

Juventus were hoping for some sort of discount on that, but Everton have put up a wall, refusing to give discounts or open the door to a change of formula.

That’s forced Juventus into working with Enzo Raiola to locate a third club to find a way out of the deal that suits all parties, and various exchanges have been hypothesised.

A dialogue is open with PSG, where Kean spent a successful year on loan, while West Ham have ‘also made a move’.

The nature of that move isn’t mentioned, but it’s been well established that West Ham are on the hunt for a striker this summer to complement and then replace Michail Antonio.

Whether Kean is that man is debatable, yet efforts are underway, it seems, with Everton refusing to do Juventus any favours on the loan deal they signed last summer.
