Newcastle United: PIF ‘most interested’ in Moise Kean

Newcastle United: PIF ‘most interested’ in Moise Kean -Newcastle United News

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) are reportedly ‘most interested’ to sign Juventus striker Moise Kean for Newcastle United.

The Lowdown: On loan from Everton

Kean is actually on loan at the Old Lady from Everton, but the Italians have an obligation to buy him at the end of the season.

The striker had hit a purple patch in terms of form before the break for the FIFA World Cup, with three goals in his last two Serie A games.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

As per Italian news outlet Juve Dipendenza, the St. James’ Park outfit are one of a number of clubs that are ‘most interested’ in signing Kean, and Juve would be willing to negotiate a potential player swap deal involving Allan Saint-Maximin.

The winger’s season has been hampered by injury so far, and he has been linked with a move away from the North East.

The Verdict: No deal

The Tynesiders should not be looking to get rid of Saint-Maximin, even if it involves potentially bringing another player in.

He has been a great servant to the Magpies, playing over 100 matches over the last four campaigns, scoring 13 goals and making a further 19 assists (Transfermarkt).

Nonetheless, swapping him for Kean would likely not work out long-term, given Kean’s poor record with the Toffees in England.

Hailed as ‘fearless’ and ‘courageous’ by his former manager and ex-Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, the 22-year-old did burst onto the scene as a teenager, making his debut for the Italian national team at the tender age of just 18.

His playing style is similar to that of Toon striker Callum Wilson, who is with the England squad in Qatar, but with him and club-record summer signing Alexander Isak already at the club, it seems unreasonable to bring in another forward so soon, especially one that ultimately failed in English football.
