Moise Kean has reportedly made clear his desire to stay with Paris Saint-Germain following his successful season on loan with the French club but he may have to wait for clarity on the situation at least until Everton have appointed a new manager.
The Italian striker was cleared to join PSG by Marcel Brands and Carlo Ancelotti last autumn and he scored 17 goals in all competitions, including three in the Champions League, and his agent, Mino Raiola, is reportedly in talks over keeping Kean in Paris.
Now managed by Mauricio Pochettino, the Ligue 1 club are as keen to keep Kean as the 21-year-old is to stay but the latest claims are that they are asking Everton for another season-long loan.
The Blues would prefer to sell him outright or bring him back into the fold on Merseyside but a decision could be delayed until Ancelotti's replacement is hired.

The only question is how big should the fee be and/or do PSG have any players we might be interested in and that doesn't mean anybody we've had before. And with all the talk of somebody getting in DCL's ear in the England camp or Richarlison following Ancelotti to Real we might need all the strikers we can get.

If that is the only choice, it must come with an obligation to buy at a set price, a price higher than what they would pay now - say €50million.
If PSG won't agree to purchasing him, then tough beans lad, they obviously don't rate you too highly.

Everton want a fee to reinvest in team building, by the sale of a player who will never wants to return.

I like the job that Nuno did at Wolves and, given what I believe is a potentially stronger squad, I would have no trouble with him coming in. He has made some shrewd signings and shown good tactical nous. He struggled this year with key injuries.
Once we have a manager we can really start targeting players. If he arrives with Traore in tow, all the better.
As for Moise Kean. Only if we get manager who can be bothered to massage his huge ego would he want to play for Everton. I think £50M spent on the current squad would have made us more competitive this past season. So I would put a big price ticket on him and say to interested clubs "Come and get him!" We can't let another club or any player hold us to ransom. If Kean is not scoring goals for us next season, we have to cash in.

if Kean wants out, his agent can get his finger out and source a sale somewhere... Everton should also insist that they have a clause of buy-back and 20% sell-on fee. We need to become more business savvy...

However, such pacifism is no good for us, and it's no good for the game. The second the new manager is appointed, he should state in his first press conference “with a front 3 of Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Kean I believe we have one of the best young forward lines in the world. It's my job to bring in the players to complement them”.
This sends a message to Kean that he's wanted, Raiola that we ain't rolling over (let's face it, it's his pay day that's likely both the catalyst and the current blocker to a move), and everyone else that we are building again.
If he hadn't come near this club, we'd all be excited if we were bidding on PSG's successful loanee. We don't need to bid, we already OWN him! Keep the boy if we have to. If he wants to sulk in the reserves all year or two then that's sad for everyone, but at least it'll show others that our contracts mean something.
Ambition means signing players the PSGs and Juves of the world want… let's start getting some ambition back?
12 Posted 08/06/2021 at 09:55:32
Soumare going for £20M. Edouard going for under £20M (though both have short contracts). Dortmund now apprently open to selling Sancho for £80m rather than £100M.
I think at best we may get £35-40M from Kean with a sell-on clause.
Perhaps if they give us a £7M loan fee with a future purchase price of £30M, it could make sense? Plus one or two of their players? Rafinha, Gueye, Paredes, Dagba, Pembele, Navas could all be surplus to requirement there but prove very useful to us.
Or we get a new manager who will play him and get the best out of him. What would be crazy would be keeping him here for another year to sit on our bench and decrease in value, he's one of our most sellable assets.

Offer him around at £20 million to drum up interest and do a deal at £25 mil. Losing 5 mil ain't great but at least he's gone.
16 Posted 08/06/2021 at 11:53:19
They've always seemed to let home grown talent go so easily like Tianzou, Nkunku, Zagadou, Ikone, Edouard and even Rabiot. Maybe we can pick up one coming in the other direction.
17 Posted 08/06/2021 at 13:18:57
As for Kean - I have never liked his egoistic attitude and if that doesn't change we need to get rid and invest in players who want to be here and improve and fight.
18 Posted 08/06/2021 at 16:50:55
Hes useful, if DCL does well at the Euros hell be linked then were left with Kean up top anyway.
19 Posted 08/06/2021 at 17:07:13
Come on Colin, you would miss him, really! :-)
20 Posted 08/06/2021 at 17:43:21
I say if we can get a big profit on our £25 million investment, sell him -- and (US bias alert!) buy the huge Yank Daryl Dike, who has gone back to MLS after nearly pulling Barnsley up into the Premier League with 9 in 19 appearances.
21 Posted 08/06/2021 at 18:34:00
Bring him back to camp, tell him he ain't leaving, and see if he's going to put in the effort or do a "Lookman".

These are two clubs in the so-called stratosphere of European football finances and Kean has said he would play for either! Play them off against each other!
This lad has an even more sulky schoolboy attitude than Lukaku when he is not getting his own way. He has not seemed to learn that his own hard work will determine his future!
Think what we can get for £50m? Two Ben Godfreys, young, hungry and dynamic.
EFC: do not screw this up, we have the upper hand in this deal – Do not fall for the player plus cash deal!

Is that Iwobi to join their domestic staff? To polish boots and wash kits etc?
I can't see how else he'd make a contribution?
26 Posted 09/06/2021 at 12:23:20
If Kean is worth 50 million then we hold out for that fee or he returns to Goodison.

After a good season at PSG his stock will have risen, and we can certainly demand more than we paid, but if we set the bar too high, there's no takers and we insist he comes back to us, what do we do with him next season?
If we play him and he performs like he did in his first season we're back to where we were last season being lucky to recoup what we paid.
I'd love us to get as much as we can and we certainly shouldnt be rolling over for a club like PSG, though equally I think there are plenty of back up strikers they could sign beyond a player who couldnt make it into the Italy squad.

As you say, he has done very well - 14 goals in 26 league games and 3 goals in the Champions League. In total, 17 goals in 41 games despite starting from the bench on a number of occasions.
I think we should sell him provided our valuation is met, but we shouldn't compromise too far. We rolled over on Gueye and vastly undervalued him.

IMO he's not as good as I thought he was. He looks clumsy on the ball rather than skilful and potent.
He's young, certainly does have time to improve and some talent but I don't think he's goings to improve Everton next season.
Therefore happy to let go. Realistic sales price £35-40M plus add ons
or Season long loan for £5M upfront and we pay no wages.
Otherwise if our new manager thinks he can get him playing in a more attacking line up then keep him.
4-3-3 sound's great, but our defence and midfield is to slow, static and not good enough to keep possession or play long passes.
Kean is the least of our worries. Get players in, get an experienced and demanding manager then worry about player sales. Other clubs are in a much worse financial position so stay strong, get players in ASAP.
No Euros so less likely to get injured and fresh start for next season.
