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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

#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.

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.

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

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

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.
