PSG admit they ‘will try’ to sign Moise Kean from Everton after ‘very positive’ loan
Paris Saint-Germain have admitted they will try to sign Everton striker Moise Kean this summer, following the Italian’s successful loan to the club.
The former Juventus man joined the Toffees in August 2019 after a promising spell in Italy but ultimately struggled to buy time in England with Dominic Calvert-Lewin emerging as the club’s undisputed striker.
Kean’s disappointing time at Goodison Park was embodied in Everton’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford, with the Italy international entering the fray as a 70th-minute substitute, before being pulled out just 18 minutes later by interim boss Duncan Ferguson.
The arrival of his compatriot Carlo Ancelotti did not change his fortune as many had hoped, the youngster finally being sent on loan to PSG this summer.
After his difficult, albeit brief, stint in the Premier League, the 20-year-old has been a revelation at Parc des Princes, scoring 14 times in all competitions so far, including 10 in Ligue 1.
Alongside Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Angel Di Maria, the center-forward thrived and scored an excellent header in Barcelona’s 4-1 beating at Camp Nou last week.
While the player’s one-season loan deal in France would not include a purchase option, the club appear interested in signing him for good, with soccer director Leonardo admitting that Kean’s loan has been ‘very positive ”.
“It’s hard to know; I think we will understand the situation better towards the end, ”he said. France Blue.
“It was a choice, we could not help but loan, and I think today, having Kean for a year at our disposal was already something very positive.
“If we can see the future under certain conditions, and we’ll see which ones, we’ll try to see how it goes.
“But today, it’s very complicated to know how it’s going to go.”
