Everton are reportedly willing to send Moise Kean out on loan to Roma this summer, with the Serie A side interested in his services.
According to Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Roma are looking to bring the Italian forward back to his home country and Everton are willing to oblige. The Blues will reportedly allow a loan move this summer, with no obligation to buy.
The Italian report has stated Carlo Ancelotti is a viewed as ‘a good ally’ to the Serie A outfit following the club’s recent interest in Cengiz Ünder.
Who should Everton put faith in next season?
Kean has ruffled a few feathers recently, with his disappointing match performances and off-pitch controversies not proving to be a good combination. According to reports, the 20-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola is trying to find a move for Kean to return to Italy (per Calciomercato via RomaPress).
It seems Everton are still interested in bringing Ünder to Goodison Park, which would be a good asset to Ancelotti’s squad under construction. The Turkey international has scored three goals this season but had a much more fruitful 2018/19 campaign. The 22-year-old bagged himself six goals and 10 assists last term, numbers that could seriously benefit the Toffees if they get him to Merseyside (via Transfermarkt).
Kean has been with the Merseyside outfit for less than a year but talks could be under way to find another club for him in the summer.
If the Blues are able to use the 20-year-old as a pawn in signing Ünder, they could be getting the better end of the deal. Overall, Roma’s winger seems like the more creative and confident player having averaged more shots per game (1.7) than Kean (1.1) as well as completing more dribbles (1.9) than the Everton frontman’s 0.9 (via WhoScored).
Loaning Kean to Roma – or potentially cashing in on him – in exchange for Ünder would be a good deal for Ancelotti, who is looking to reestablish this team and challenge for Europe. Particularly with the Italian forward’s recent personal problems, the club might want to cut their losses and, if so, Ünder should be made a priority.
Do you agree, Blues? Should Everton look to buy Ünder or does Kean still fit the bill? Join the chat in the comments below!
