Darren Bent has tipped Moise Kean to leave Everton once his loan spell at PSG ends at the end of the 2020/21 term.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Spurs, Aston Villa and Sunderland striker thinks that if the Italy international continues to score a lot of goals for the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League finalists, then he may get himself a move away from the Goodison Park faithful:
“You know what’s going to happen, he’s going to go to PSG, score all these goals and play really well, Everton are going to want to bring him back and he’s not going to want to come back.
“In that respect, I can understand it because he’s not really been given much of an opportunity at Everton – I know he’s not helped himself as well in certain situations – but he’s going to go to PSG, find his form, link up with some of those players, enjoy his football, find his confidence again.
“The last thing he wants to do is leave PSG, come back to Everton, fall behind Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, not get much game time and be like: ‘What’s the point in me coming back here?’
“I reckon if he scores 15 to 20 goals, does really, really well, he won’t come back.”
Kean has had a very good start at PSG
Indeed, Kean has had a very good start to life at Paris Saint-Germain, scoring no fewer than five goals and making a further assist in just seven games in all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt).
Does Kean have a future at Everton?
Thomas Tuchel has previously hailed the impact that he has had on the reigning French champions, claiming that the 20-year-old has ‘a great physical capacity’.
Everton may look to sell Kean
Indeed, Carlo Ancelotti’s team may look to sell Kean for a good price at the end of his loan spell should he keep banging in the goals in France.
The striker was nowhere near as prolific for the Merseyside club, as he only managed to find the back of the net twice and make just two assists in 31 matches in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison have also scored a very impressive 15 goals between them so far in this campaign, and so perhaps selling Kean would not be the worst idea in the world, although a lack of attacking talent does seem to be an issue for the Blues.
Nonetheless, the forward could well get a move away from the Toffees at the end of his loan spell as Bent has claimed.
