Everton striker Moise Kean future hangs in the balance – report

Everton striker Moise Kean’s future remains unclear despite him being offered to a number of clubs in Europe, according to Corriere Dello Sport print edition (page 8).

The Italy international has been at Juventus on a two-year loan deal who also have an option to make the deal permanent.

As per the latest report, he has been offered to AS Roma, French champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) as a part of a swap deal including midfielder Leonardo Paredes and to Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid to sign forward Alvaro Morata in return.

However, as per the report, none of those offers appeared to produce any positive results which left Kean’s future in the balance.

Jury is out

After so many seasons back and forth in Italy and England, there is still not a definite answer about Kean’s potential as a striker.

Sometimes, he looks really good, as he did in his early days at Juventus, which turned him into a hot prospect attracting interest from a number of big clubs in Europe.

However, ever since he joined Everton, he looked like a shadow of a player who was once tipped to become the next big thing in club football as well as for the national team.

In the 2021-22 season, Italy international scored five goals and provided one assist. However, 20 of his 32 Serie A appearances have come from the bench. The 22-year-old averaged 0.9 shots per goal and had a pass completion rate of 78.3% [Whoscored].

Ideally, Everton would’ve wanted Kean back, especially after the departure of Richarlison who joined Tottenham Hotspur but those numbers suggest that the Merseyside club are better off without a player who is still finding his true potential.
