Moise Kean's agent, Mino Raiola, has offered the Everton striker to AC Milan, according to a report in Italy.
Tuesday's edition of Tuttosport claims that Mino Raiola has proposed a return to Italy for his client after a difficult first season at Everton so far. However, a similar rumour surfaced back in January but nothing came of it.
It appears the Blues will not let their young asset go cheaply and would be looking to recoup the full €27.5M transfer fee they paid Juventus for the highly-rated young prospect just one year ago.
Everton's contract with Moise Kean still has 3 years to run.

But, I saw some signs of encouragement in the last few games – he seemed to be holding up the ball better, creating opportunities for other teammates, some skilful ball-trapping and dragging defenders out of position. If Carlo persists with him and gives him more than 5 mins at the end of the game, I could see him bloom and give competition to Calvert-Lewin next season.
We should keep him because, for the money we get by selling him, we would get the likes of Christian Benteke or similar.

If Moise is going back to Italy, I would rather hear about it when the deal is done than he has been ‘offered to' a club. It looks negative if they decide against it, and that's not good for us or the player.

Jeez, it never stops!

'First thing we do, lets kill all the Agents'
But If it...the sale...happens its - hello, sell to buy time again. Can't see Ancelotti liking that for too long.

Infinitely better than Calvert-Lewin?
What an odd statement to make!! Perhaps he has more potential or a wider skills set (in your opinion) but facts, stats and data say you are very wrong
You keep your 2 goals and I'll keep 13 goals eh?
12 Posted 18/08/2020 at 11:38:58
Remember when Lukaku apparently couldn't control a ball and was lazy, even though his premier league goalscoring record was the best we have ever had. Well, look at him now.
Moise Kean was highly rated when he signed for Everton and he still is.

That is a bit simplistic. I wasn't disputing that Calvert-Lewin had a better season. My point was Kean has potential to be a vastly superior player, and is not someone we should contemplate selling.
Calvert-Lewin's tally should be double what it was considering the amount of chances he squandered. In fact, he is something of a data anomaly – a lot of his chances don't even register as a chance because he doesn't even got a shot off. Numerous times this season, he was put through yet failed to shoot, let alone hit the target. Great athlete, that's about it.

He drifted into space on the back stick and tapped it into an empty net. For all Calvert-Lewin's play, there are many who say he is not a natural. For me, Kean's goal was that of a more natural goalscorer.
And would he want to go back to Italy for all that racist abuse? Remember, we "Kick out Racism" and they chant it from the terraces.
22 Posted 18/08/2020 at 12:56:19
I haven't been overly impressed with Kean but if Carlo wants to keep him then let's see him start more games and prove his worth. There's always another window he can exit by.
23 Posted 18/08/2020 at 13:10:17
A definite keep for me. I would be quite excited at the prospect of Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Kean in the same line-up.

A young lad who has lacked discipline will always have problems. Get rid, cut our losses, and let him party and dance in other colours.
28 Posted 18/08/2020 at 16:14:59
Obviously, we are clearly short of a very strong defensive midfield player at present to make this viable right now and perhaps short of a right-sided midfielder too (though to a slightly lesser extent).
I do think, with the forward talent we have at our disposal currently, we should be using 4-3-3 more than we do. The glut of Number 10s we have in the squad currently dictates 4-3-3 seems not to be a viable option, at least for Carlo, as he seems to want to keep senior players happy, regardless of how they are performing.
The pace of Kean and Walcott and Richarlison should in theory trouble many defences and Calvert-Lewin does offer aerial ability along with athleticism when he can be arsed.
29 Posted 18/08/2020 at 17:29:17
30 Posted 18/08/2020 at 18:32:50
If we get Allan, Doucouré, Thiago Silva and the right-back Arias, that would be a great window. Shift out as much of the deadwood as we can and hopefully have enough left in the kitty for a winger. Carlo will sort it!!

This is an impossible marriage. As soon as Kean bangs a few in, Raiola will open his mouth on a daily basis.
I believe at best we will get a maximum of one good season out of him and his agent will then bring him to one of the top European clubs.
37 Posted 19/08/2020 at 00:47:13
Juventus laughing all the way to the bank. The Merseyside Mugs conned yet again.
38 Posted 19/08/2020 at 01:19:08
He seemed a different player; full of speed, good positional space and a lot of confidence. Hopefully this bodes well for this upcoming season.
39 Posted 19/08/2020 at 01:48:16
Keep – for now.

If he isn't getting regular first team football in the first few months of the season, I can see him going in January. Right now, he's nowhere near DCL's level, so it's a matter of whether he and the club are prepared to be patient.
43 Posted 19/08/2020 at 14:38:16
At the moment, he comes in and looks too selfish and is not really a team player. If Ancelotti can't sort that side of him out this season and steer him clear of off-field shit, then I suggest we start looking at getting our money back.
44 Posted 19/08/2020 at 14:41:10
Former Burnley defender Michael Keane has been linked with a shock move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
Reports in the Spanish press suggest that new Barca boss Ronald Koeman wants to bring the 27-year-old to the Nou Camp having worked with the centre-back at Everton.
45 Posted 19/08/2020 at 14:57:02
46 Posted 19/08/2020 at 15:07:57
Silly season has definitely started.
47 Posted 19/08/2020 at 15:47:50
Now, it's all click and bait.
You can just imagine Koeman before he is even made manager at Barca telling reporters "I can't wait to get that top centre-back at Everton over to Spain." What a crock of shit. Whoever posted that article should be banned from posting again.
48 Posted 19/08/2020 at 15:50:07
Mini Raiola, on the other hand, is a snake in a cesspit and should have his license revoked.
49 Posted 19/08/2020 at 15:56:57
I take it you mean the journalist responsible and not me?
50 Posted 19/08/2020 at 16:08:01
I would never criticise you. I was, as you say, talking about the idiots who are supposed to be reporting facts and not making up stories.
51 Posted 19/08/2020 at 16:30:27
Plays with his head down and has zero awareness of what's going on around him – a fatal flaw which clearly wasn't seen on YouTube before he signed. This would have been the main reason Juventus very nearly relieved Brands of an arm when he offered nearly £30M. Indicative of the signings we have made recently.
Those acting with incredulity over comparisons between him and Big Vic need to revisit Vic's record when he was Kean's age. He cost us nothing.

54 Posted 21/08/2020 at 22:19:14
1st season - 1 goal
2nd season - 1 goal
3rd season - 3 goals
4th, 5th & 6th seasons - 1 goal in each
7th season - 0 goals
8th season - 4 goals
9th season - 6 goals
10th season - 0 goals
Total - 18 goals in ten seasons!
i don't think Kean will have too many problems beating that record, already doubled big Vics 1st season tally. ;-)
55 Posted 21/08/2020 at 22:48:55
I didn't realise Vic was such a prolific scorer.
56 Posted 21/08/2020 at 23:00:34
I would love to have him stay and prove an asset alongside Richarlison. It's up to Carlo to give him a few more games but if not let him go.

That bizarre Keane story has been on several sites. I cant imagine Koeman reflecting on the halcyon days when we got walloped by Atlanta and thinking “we need those defenders at Barce.” Even if he did, no one at Barca would approve it and beyond that Barce are skinny. And yet a dozen or so “journalists” are hawking what surely began as a piss take.

Inter Milan lost the Europa League final. Sevilla got their 6th trophy in this competition.
64 Posted 21/08/2020 at 23:43:05
It's just a pity Grant didn't also mention the goal Lukaku scored at the right end, after out-muscling then out pacing his marker, only to be brought down in the penalty area by the same defender for a penalty, which Lukaku calmly slotted to put Inter one up.
I just wish he was still playing for us.
65 Posted 21/08/2020 at 00:04:38
I do feel that should have been a free-kick outside the box where the initial foul was especially just a few minutes in to a cup final. If that had been given against the RS, the third world war would have broken out.
On the other hand, that was some of the worst defending I have seen at that level. I don't think Reguillon covered himself in glory much either as he seemed to be missing from that flank every time Inter went forward.
66 Posted 22/08/2020 at 00:39:15
Do you not think that Kean would be best suited to a central role in a front three? I think if we had decent midfielders who could pass a ball, he could flourish in the central position.
It may take a little time and maybe short term he will need to alternate with Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison for the central berth but I do think that medium-term centrally is where Moise can excel. I hope we can show a little bit more patience and faith in him than perhaps was afforded to Vlasic and perhaps even Lookman.
67 Posted 22/08/2020 at 02:25:31
68 Posted 22/08/2020 at 03:08:06
He may do well centrally. I suggested wide because he seemed to do well cutting in from the right and left at Juve. Also, I could see him doing well in that role as Lukaku did when we hammered Arsenal in Martinez's first season. But certainly he has the potential to do well centrally too.
69 Posted 22/08/2020 at 03:35:25
Kean still looks a prospect. And if there were options at the club to allow him time to develop, it would be fine to keep him on the books (and if he and his agent were patient enough!)
But we have two young forwards already bearing the burden. If we could get in a proven scorer in their prime on a permanent deal, Kean could leave so long as the transfer value was the same as paid out. Or if we could secure a veteran but still proficient player on loan for a season, he could leave on loan himself, not unlike with Kenny, to see if he can cut it and to give Everton a, hopefully, more consistent goal threat Immediately. If Kean aces it, he either comes back and plays or his transfer value increases and he can be moved on at a profit.
Simple. All we have to do now is find a quality player in this role. They are everywhere at the moment!
70 Posted 22/08/2020 at 03:51:06
I imagine Koeman still wakes up in a cold sweat after dreams about the Everton defence.
71 Posted 22/08/2020 at 06:30:11
Vic was never a goalscorer. Some may not have realised his record scoring record was poor, but almost everyone else knew. I guess that's why somebody made the comparison... It was to demonstrate how poor Kean's record is.
You have put up stats after he had suffered the most horrific injury. I asked you to compare his record to Kean at that Kean's age.
Kean may not be struggling too much to beat his record, as you claim, but the hasn't managed it either, has he?
My hunch is he will never reach even Vic's numbers.
72 Posted 22/08/2020 at 10:08:13
After a while, I reckon they figured out that, rather than being a battering ram brought on to shake them up, he was more akin to a rhino trying out ballet and could be knocked over by the merest suggestion of a challenge.
73 Posted 22/08/2020 at 11:52:53
Danny Cadamateri, Jeffers, Vaughan Gosling, Calvert-Lewin and of course Rooney. Had all made a bigger impression in a blue shirt before they were Kean's age.
I so wanted Kean's signing to be a success. Especially after Sourness had so publicly ridiculed the signing when he claimed the Italians had seen us coming.
Kean has had 30-odd opportunities to show what he can do. I don't think another 30-odd will make that much difference.
All our hopes are on Carlo, but what earthly chance has he got if this is the sort of signing he can expect? Brands really worries me. He has got to pull his finger out and give the manager something to work with.
74 Posted 22/08/2020 at 12:21:55
Man City were outplaying us and were deservedly one up after 30 minutes when Moyes clearly told Vic to get in Lescott's face and that's exactly what he did to great effect, leading to a second-half Blues revival with Distin left unmarked at a corner and then a real fizz-banger from Leon Osman! Vic used his strength to such good effect to really disorientate the City back four!

Time will tell about Kean but the fact that Ancelotti wants to keep him would suggest to me he'll be a far better player than Anichebe ever was, even if we did apparently buy him after watching YouTube. 😂😂
79 Posted 22/08/2020 at 20:36:56
Still, he gave us one or two great moments, like the goal Rob mentions, and he was from my neck of the woods, went to Sacred Heart School, so I can't help respecting him for achieving a career in football.
80 Posted 22/08/2020 at 20:50:56
And he didn't head the ball very well.
81 Posted 22/08/2020 at 21:35:46
82 Posted 01/09/2020 at 11:07:00
If true, good to see that Carlo has faith in the young strker. I'm sure the home country connection is a key part to this. Let's see what the old man is made of and if he can get this lad performing in a blue shirt (maybe two blue shirts!).
83 Posted 01/09/2020 at 11:27:15
Let's see what a few quality players bring out in the others in the months to come (I cross my fingers).
