Moise Kean’s agent is reportedly looking to secure a loan move for the Everton forward this summer.
According to Calciomercato (via Bleacher Report), Mino Raiola is still trying to push for a return to Serie A for his client, more specifically, a deal with a club in the capital. Allegedly, Roma could be looking to pay an ‘expensive’ loan fee to bring Kean back to Italy with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the one- or two-year spell.
Kean has struggled to find his feet so far with Everton, being an inconsistent starter in Carlo Ancelotti’s side. The 20-year-old has made 26 appearances for the Merseyside outfit in his debut season and has contributed just one goal and two assists in that time (via Transfermarkt).
Will Everton win a trophy under Carlo Ancelotti?
The Italy youth international linked up with the Blues in an initial £25.1m move, penning a five-year deal (via BBC Sport). Now, less than 12 months into his time at Goodison Park, Kean could be looking for a way back to his home country.
According to the report, the striker is open to a move to Roma and wants to link up with best friend Nicolo Zaniolo. If the Serie A champions want to sign Kean on a permanent deal, they will be looking at paying €20m-€22m (£18m-£20m) for his services.
Everton will more than likely take a loss if they decide to cash in on the forward but, after his underwhelming first season and off-pitch controversies (he recently defied lockdown rules by hosting a party at his residence), the club may just cut their losses and move him on.
Do you think Everton should sell Kean in the summer or is he deserving of another chance at Goodison? Join the conversation in the comments below…
