It really hasn’t taken long for the Italian media to get it into their head that Moise Kean could return to his home country less than six months after signing for Everton.

All it took was a mediocre run of form (no goals in 11 games) and him turning up late to a team meeting, et voilà… 

Now we have Roma pushing to return him to Italy and help Edin Džeko in attack, and Corriere dello Sport seem to suggest it’s something the player could be interested in.

They do that by revealing Kean has asked his good friend Nicolo Zaniolo ‘for information’, which we can only guess means details on life at the club and in the city.

Corriere say that from Everton’s point of view, a transfer is ‘doable’, but ‘probably only on loan’, as the club’s difficult situation in the bottom half of the table has led to Marco Silva relying on older and more experienced players.

It’s stated the Portuguese doesn’t think this is the right moment to ‘wean’ a young player, but that doesn’t mean they want to sell him permanently.

The Premier League club are reluctant to let their investment (£25m) depart so soon, which leads to the loan option, where he could continue to develop in a league he knows, before looking at things again in the summer.

They also mention the PSV Eindhoven option, as the Marcel Brands connections could lead to a quick move to the Eredivisie if that suits all parties better.

This could grow quickly, and a lot will depend on how Everton really see the situation with Kean.
