Everton striker Moise Kean appears to be stuck in a cycle where he continues to jump between Everton, Juventus and PSG. The Italian striker faces an uncertain period in Turin and there’s a good chance he will leave Juventus this summer.
When Kean arrived on Merseyside he was considered one of the most promising youngsters in Europe and many praised Everton for buying the academy product from Juventus. However, since then Kean had been on a downward spiral for Everton. After scoring just two goals in his debut season, Kean was in desperate need of more playing time and he headed to PSG on a loan deal.
His fortune swung to Paris where he became a deadly weapon in the attack. Among the host of superstars in PSG’s roster, Kean has made a name for himself, scoring 17 goals in 41 appearances.
His market value exploded and Everton were ready to cash in on him. That’s when Juventus stepped in and signed Kean on a two-year loan with a €28m obligation to buy. The Bianconeri hoped Kean would be their main long-term striker. However, Max Allegri decided to bring Dusan Vlahovic to the Allianz Stadium and put him in charge of being the club’s top scorer.
Everton striker Moise Kean could end up playing for PSG next season
While Vlahovic did not disappoint, Kean’s season with Juventus was disappointing. The 22-year-old has scored six times in 42 games which is not a good return on his investment. With the 2022-23 season on the horizon, the Old Lady will have to make the year two loan payment which stands at €4m.
However, there have been reports in the past that suggest the Italians are considering activating the option to buy this summer and sell Kean to another interested party.
There was interest from the Premier League. PSG have always admired Kean’s talent and were very impressed with Kean’s performance during the loan spell. The 22-year-old also likes the idea of returning to PSG.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via sports witness), Juventus want to get rid of Kean and have drawn up a plan to do so. The Old Lady are hoping to strike a swap deal with PSG which will see Kean move to Paris and Juve acquire the services of Leandro Parades.

In that case, the Toffees will miss out on €4m and if such a deal is to be brought forward, Everton and Juventus will have to renegotiate the current terms of the deal, for which the Toffees have shown little ambition.
Kean and Parades are valued at around €30m so a direct swap will work for both sides as PSG will get their striker and Allegri will get the midfield profile he wanted.
With Everton in no mood to renegotiate the terms of the deal, the only way is for Juventus to buy Kean permanently this summer and then sell or use him in a swap deal. The Toffees should be open to such a deal as Everton will receive €28m this summer instead of next summer. Funds from Kean’s sale will help Frank Lampard complete the summer rebuild.
