Having arrived from Juventus with a lot of hype and expectations it has not been the move Moise Kean would’ve expected with a low point being subbed on then off just 18 minutes later by Duncan Ferguson, and former striker Marcus Bent claims that the club have realised that the Italian is not an Everton type of player.
Recent reports have emerged that Kean only wants to return to PSG this summer and the two clubs are trying to thrash out another season-long loan deal even with Carlo Ancelotti no longer being at the helm.
Is Kean good enough for Everton?
When Kean arrived in the summer of 2019, he was leaving Juventus after managing to net six goals in just 13 appearances for the Old Lady, but compare that to his two goals in 31 league appearances for Everton, there has been no reason for him to remain at Goodison Park based on his performances in the Premier League.
Kean impressed when handed a chance at PSG under both Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino but that has done little to sway Everton’s opinion on the striker not being up to the standards required, according to Bent who spoke exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“They’ve said they don’t feel like he’s an Everton player but we know that he’s a goalscorer, but I just don’t think he fits the criteria at Everton.”
At the moment, Kean would have to dislodge both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison to get a regular starting spot in the team and under new manager, Rafa Benitez, he may be handed a chance to prove his worth, but it’s difficult to see him starting ahead of those two.
If PSG are able to bring him back on loan as well as adding Georginio Wijnaldum to their side on a free transfer then it would appear to be two smart pieces of business without having to shell out loads of money.
