Everton: £34m star 'doesn't want future' at Goodison Park

Everton boss Frank Lampard

Everton striker Moise Kean “hasn’t got a future” at Goodison Park, according to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.

The Italy international signed from Juventus for £25.1m in the summer of 2019, but he’s spent two of his three years as a Toffees player out on loan.

What’s the latest news involving Kean?

When Kean, a highly-rated teenager with seven goals in 17 games for Juve, signed a long-term contract while Marco Silva was manager, his arrival looked to be a big coup for the Merseysiders.

But his time as an Everton player has been less than spectacular. He scored just twice in his first season, not helped by Silva being sacked shortly after he signed and was then loaned out to PSG for the 2020-2021 campaign.

What is the capacity of Goodison Park?

Kean, valued at £34m, scored an impressive 19 goals to help the French giants reach the Champions League final, and although he appeared twice under Rafael Benitez’s reign at the beginning of last season, he signed a two-year loan deal back at Juventus with an obligation to buy.

Therefore, Brown doesn’t believe the Italian frontman has any sort of future at Goodison Park.

What did Brown say about Kean?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “It’s clear he hasn’t got a future at Everton, and I don’t think he wants one either, I think that’s also quite clear.

“The move didn’t work out for him and the man that brought him in, Marcel Brands has gone and it’s a completely different club now.”

How did Kean perform last season?

If his loan spell in the French league with PSG was memorable, Kean’s first season back at Juventus was largely forgetful.

Signed as Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement following his return to Manchester United, Kean managed just six goals in 44 appearances.

Initially, the striker was competing with Alvaro Morata for a starting place, but the January arrival of Dusan Vlahovic saw his opportunities reduce quite significantly.

As a result, the 22-year-old made just four Serie A starts from February onwards, while he played just five minutes across the two legs against Villarreal in the Champions League.

Despite his lack of starts, Kean was an unused substitute just once all season and the only other times he missed out was because of injury or suspension, suggesting that he’s firmly in Massimiliano Allegri’s plans, even though he might not be first choice.
