Darren Bent has dropped a transfer claim on Moise Kean as he thinks that Everton should look to cash in on him when his loan spell at PSG ends.
Sky Sports had reported earlier on in this month’s window that Paris Saint Germain have held talks with the Goodison Park faithful over the permanent signing of the Italy international for £31m, which would give them a £4m profit on the £27m that they paid to sign him from Juventus back in 2019.
Does Kean have a future at Everton?
Carlo Ancelotti has since confirmed that he is happy for the Merseyside club to discuss a permanent deal for the 20-year-old to stay at the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League finalists if he would like to remain in the French capital.
With all of this in mind, Bent has told Football Insider that he thinks that the Toffees should take the money offered for the striker because his market value may go back down if he comes back and loses form again:
“They’ve got to take it, because I don’t quite know what they’d be able to get for him if he did come back and didn’t quite do the business.
“For me, it’s certainly, definitely, a case of he needs to go, if they can get some money for him now then do it.”
Kean sale would be good business by Everton
The sale of Kean to PSG for a profit would certainly be a good bit of business for the Blues, especially as £31m is a very generous amount for a player who really struggled for them.
The forward scored a mere four goals in 37 games in all competitions over the last two consecutive terms for EFC (Transfermarkt), and there is no guarantee that his form would be able to pick up, despite his loan success.
The club could use that money to then invest in another striker to help ease the goal scoring burden off of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who would hopefully achieve a better record than Kean.
