Kevin Phillips has tipped Moise Kean to thrive at PSG this season after joining them on loan from Everton for the rest of the 2020/21 campaign.
The former Sunderland and England striker gave his thoughts to Football Insider about the loan move, tipping the Italy international to score plenty of goals this term and suggesting that a move to Goodison Park perhaps came too early for him. He said:
“He was one of those four with Joelinton, Haller and Wesley at Villa, you thought these big four, powerful strikers would come into and settle into the Premier League with no problem whatsoever.
“It’s amazing how all four of them have struggled.
“I just think it’s the tempo of the game and the better defenders that they’re coming up against.
“You watch him, he’ll probably go away now and score loads of goals.
“And people will be saying ‘why did we get rid of him?’ but sometimes players can’t settle.
“We’ve seen it loads of times with players that have left. Look at Romelu Lukaku who went to Inter Milan and can’t stop scoring.
“Some leagues and some clubs don’t suit players and vice versa.
“Watch him at PSG, he’ll score bundles.”
Kean showed early promise at Juventus
Indeed, Kean enjoyed a relatively impressive 2018/19 season while playing for Juventus, scoring seven goals in 17 games in all competitions while still only a teenager for the Old Lady, according Transfermarkt.
This prompted the Merseyside club to pay a sizeable £24.75m to sign the youngster off the back of such early promise, but it has not quite worked out for Kean at the Toffees as of yet.
Premier League a step too far for
The Premier League was arguably just a step too far for Kean, who only managed to find the back of the net twice and provided just two assists in 31 matches in England’s highest division, as per Transfermarkt, before making his loan move to the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League finalists.
Does Kean have a future at Everton?
Kean may thrive at PSG
Indeed, as Phillips claims, Kean may score bundles of goals at PSG as his style may suit other leagues, given that he did quite well while playing for Juve but ultimately struggled in the English top flight.
Nonetheless, the centre-forward will be looking to impress while playing in the French capital.
