Ex-Everton star Michael Ball insists that the club’s fans would be happy to keep Moise Kean this summer if a bid is not tabled.
The striker went on loan to PSG last season and thrived under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Italian scored 17 goals in 41 outings for the French giants, but his hopes of a permanent move seem to have dwindled.
Is it time to move on from Kean?
Indeed, PSG have secured the signing of Lionel Messi on a free transfer from Barcelona, meaning that a deal to sign Kean is particularly unlikely.
Inter Milan are said to see the Toffees star as an option in this transfer window, provided they do not manage to bring in their other forward targets.
Kean has somewhat struggled during his time on Merseyside and has scored just four goals in 37 outings, but Ball believes the fans would gladly keep him. If he does leave, however, he expects the money generated to be reinvested – he is valued at £31.5m by Transfermarkt.
He said: “If he does stay, I think the fans will be happy but if he does move on, I think that’s when Everton’s transfer window will start getting a bit hectic, and the money they bring in for him will be going elsewhere.”
