Fresh rumour links Kean with Serie A return

| Monday, 20 April 2020 16comments  |  Jump to last
Moise Kean continues to be linked with a move back to Italy with Inter Milan the latest club said to be eyeing a summer transfer.

According to reports in Italy and one from England by MailSport, the Italian club are looking to offer £25m to buy the former Juventus striker and pair him with Romelu Lukaku following the departure of Lautaro Martinez.

Kean joined Everton last year in a £23m move that was seen as a huge coup for one of Europe's most promising teenagers but he struggled to adapt to the Premier League while Marco Silva battled to save his job and the Toffees' season derailed prior to the Portuguese's sacking in December.

With his compatriot, Carlo Ancelotti, now at the helm, Kean's prospects appear to have improved and he notched his first goal for the club earlier this year.

He'll certainly want more minutes and the chance of making Italy's Euro squad. Hope we keep him. He's not impressed much yet but I think he may have the attributes to do well in the Premier League eventually.

I wonder if Kean will be the one out to bring money in? Tosun can't be sold as he's injured long-term. I hope he stays but money will dictate whether he stays or goes.

Kean will only leave is there are domestic problems off the field rather than football issues on it.

The lad has only been here 5 minutes, he is young and needs time and patience which Carlo will give him; hopefully the fans will do the same?

Moise Kean might go on to mature into a top-class player elsewhere – we might just have bought him too soon before he could fulfil his potential.

I remember Newcastle taking a punt on Dahl Tomasson for a big fee when he was young, they didn't have the time to wait for him to fulfil his potential and he went on to play for AC Milan when they had a great team.

So, like Newcastle, it depends upon whether we can afford to wait for him to fulfil his full potential or move on if the fee is right. If it was about getting bigger and stronger, I would keep him but I cannot see his ability as footballer changing significantly.

I think it would be a shame if we sold Kean but would any manager be happy with Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Kean as your sole strike force given their ages? Or would they be looking for someone more experienced and prolific in the mix?

It does make me wonder given the present circumstances, both health and financial, if Everton and Mr Brands are rethinking their recruitment policy and looking more from a 'results now' perspective.

Above all, Moise Kean needs game time. How is he going to develop at this crucial stage of his career if he is not playing regularly?

I think he hasn't been given enough of a chance and there has been glimmers of him adapting as the season progressed. I think he would have been given more and more game time in the last 9 games too.

If we could loan him out for a year with the guarantee of game time, that maybe the best option. Moise looks like he needs another year or maybe two until he's ready. Makes me wonder whether the FFP rules will be forcing our hand with regards selling him though rather than loaning.

I think Carlo has made a decision he wants to reinforce the front line with someone more mature and proven to better supplement Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison in the shorter term and provide more instant results.

It would be silly to not give him another chance, he will nod more than one goal, and his price will rise.

#4 Paul, I think that was the point, to "buy him too soon", before he costs 1000 Seamus Colemans. It's up to Ancelotti now to mature him up, maybe like bring in a top Italian player to make Kean settle in further.

Who knows what can happen, look at Harry Kane.

There's obviously a good player in there. He's had games at Juve scoring nearly every other game, played for the National team getting 2 in 3 games and is wanted by Roma and Inter.

Plus he's a kid, the youngest of our front line. I'm not sure where he fits in. I'm sure he / we thought he'd play more but, probably like most, I didn't expect Calvert-Lewin to step up as he has. I think we need to find a way of getting him in the side because he'll end up being a star for someone else if we don't.

Just think if we had got Zlatan for them 6 months, the influence he would have had on all the strikers. Maybe we would have drawn against Arsenal and beat Man Utd? We will never know.

If and when football returns, this could work in Keans favour.

Before the season continues, they will need to have time to train and get fitnesses back up.

Everyone mentions the speed of the premier league, this lockdown will certainly not see the pace of the premier league as we know it for a while, this will benifit Kean and even The likes of Mina, Bernard, Gabadin if he returns before the games resume. They will face a much slower pace premier league for a while.

All being well, by the time games have resumed and the premier league pace picks up, quite a few of our players will gain momentum.

You mark my word, if we keep hold of Kean, he will be a totally different and better player, we need to keep hold of the guy.

No one knows when football will return, or we rid this awful virus, but once football returns, we will be able to bring our team up to speed

Nothing we've seen indicates that Kean is any more than 'a promising youngster'. Over the years, we've had dozens of kids who've shown promise then faded away. This Italian is just the latest of the breed.

I'll trust Carlo on this one. I want him to succeed, but he needs a lot of work to bring him to a top level.

But how many other strikers his age have smashed it in a new division and a struggling side?

I hope the lad stays, gets his head down & gets the chance to show what he can do. The manager will know what he's looking at & we'll all know after that. I'm not sure how anyone can offer an opinion as to whether he'll make it or not, based on the limited opportunities he's been offered so far.

Straight swap for Icardi?

Icardi is a much more mature striker with an excellent track record of scoring goals. But...his wife and the baggage. Not sure. I like the idea of developing Kean.

Also quite keen on the Coutinho rumours. I have a feeling we might get a big name like that for the new season along with some up-and-comers.
