Everton striker Moise Kean is one of the ‘hottest names’ on Juventus’ list as they look to add a striker this summer.
That’s according to Tuttosport, who cover the situation today and explain how Kean wants the move back to his former club this summer.
They explain that, with Juventus in a state of panic as they look set to miss out on the Champions League next season, big decisions will have to be made in the transfer window.
One of those will be around Cristiano Ronaldo, who is unlikely to want to play Europa League football next season, while Juventus may struggle to afford him without Champions League income.
He, therefore, could depart, and if he does, then Juventus would need to add at least two strikers to cover the gap.
The arrival of a forward has ‘long been a goal’ for the Italian giants, and the two names on their list are Arkadiusz Milik and Moise Kean.
The latter is currently on loan at PSG from Everton but does not want to return to Goodison Park when that comes to an end.
Juventus want to take advantage of that, and it ‘would be a triumph’ if they were able to work out a deal with Everton to bring him back to the club.
They would like to work out either an exchange; in this regard, defender Merih Demiral is one to ‘watch out for’ or on loan with a right to buy tagged on the end of it.
Kean is well, keen on the move and would even be happy to do it if they weren’t featuring in the Champions League next year.
The stage, then, is set for a deal to happen. Juventus just need to find the right formula to convince Everton to let it happen.
