Everton have been enjoying a superb start to the Premier League season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men won again on Saturday, beating Brighton & Hove Albion 4-2 at Goodison Park.
It moved them top of the Premier League table, however briefly, and was their fourth successive Premier League win.
Having played Tottenham Hotspur, West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace, and Brighton, they have scored 12 goals, conceding five, and have been one of the most exciting teams to watch in England.
The club’s transfer business has been excellent, too, as they have strengthened their midfield with the signings of Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and James Rodriguez.
But it appears that sales could now take precedence as the transfer deadline looms large; the transfer window will shut on Monday.
Sport Witness carries a report from Corriere dello Sport claiming that Moise Kean has a potentially surprising suitor: Juventus.
The Toffees bought Kean from the Italian club in August of 2019, spending an initial £25.1m that could rise to £27.5m.
The deal has not worked out as hoped, though, and the striker has scored just four goals in 37 games for the Toffees; two of those have come against Salford City and Fleetwood Town in this season’s EFL Cup.
Juve are said to have opened negotiations over bringing the 20-year-old back to Italy and he is hopeful of the deal being agreed.
Juventus want to take Kean on an initial loan, but Everton want to get back the money they invested in him last summer.
It remains to be seen if a deal can be agreed but there is not much time left for the format of the transfer to be agreed.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
This would be the ideal move for Kean.
The striker has not managed to take to life in the Premier League and a possible return to Serie A would be manna from heaven.
It remains to be seen if the two clubs can agree a deal but one has to feel that, if a formal bid is tabled, this would be a top deal for every party involved.
Kean gets to move back to the club where he attempted to make his name, and Everton potentially get their money back.
If a proper bid is tabled, they should take it.News Now - Sport News
