Moise Kean's future could determine some of Everton's transfer business

According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, the future of Moise Kean at Everton could determine whether or not Rafael Benitez signs any forward players during this transfer window.

They claim that the Toffees were a little “light” in the forward areas last season, and on Saturday during their pre-season friendly against Accrington Stanley, Everton were without Kean, Ellis Simms, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Richarlison.

So there are not that many forward options available to Benitez, and the report questions whether Kean will remain at Goodison Park or not. If he were to go, the question then would be, would the Toffees spend the money on another striker or use Richarlison as a forward?

Could Kean’s future impact Everton’s transfer window?

Kean has been linked with a move back to PSG, but talks have hit an impasse over any loan deal as the Toffees want to sell the Italian [Liverpool Echo].

Juventus have also registered their interest recently in signing Kean back after selling him to Everton in the summer of 2019 [Tuttosport]. So it looks like there are two huge clubs interested in recruiting Kean, and whether or not they sell him could dictate Benitez’s plans to improve his forward area.

If Kean goes, the Spaniard could probably use the funds to find another striker or forward, but if they can’t sell him, they might not be able to improve the forward line.

However, if he were to stay, the Toffees would be keeping someone who is only 21 and has a good goalscoring record for both PSG and Juventus.

So perhaps he deserves another chance on Merseyside?

We will have to see what Benitez decides, but either way, Kean’s future could impact at least a part of Everton’s transfer business.
