Everton’s €30m Approach For Striker To Be Rejected By Italian Heavyweights: What Now For Silva?

According to the latest reports from Calciomercato, Everton are planning a €30m approach for Juventus forward Moise Kean. However, the Serie A champions are expected to reject that bid straightaway as they are trying to tie the Italian striker to a new contract.

Kean is set to enter in the final year of his contract in the next few days, and Everton probably sees that as an opportunity to sign the forward. However, Juventus are going to be undeterred as they try to get Kean on a new contract until 2024.

The 21-year-old forward shot into the limelight last season when he managed some amount of game time at Juventus. The Italian international made 17 appearances in all competitions and contributed with seven goals and one assist. The player’s agent Mino Raiola wants more regular first-team action for his client and Juventus are likely to bet on him after he impressed in his few games last season.

Why Everton need a striker?

It is no surprise to see Everton trying to go after a striker in the market. The signing of Cenk Tosun hasn’t worked for the Toffees, and they had to rely on Richarlison to lead the line on occasions even though he is a winger. Dominic Calvert Lewin emerged as an option as the season went by as he was able to hold up play well and link with his team-mates. The Englishman managed six goals in the Premier League.

Apart from the two, Marco Silva doesn’t have a natural striker in his squad. Therefore one can understand why they are going after someone like Kean.

What can Kean bring at Goodison?

Kean is known for his bursting speed and impressive finishing skills. He is a livewire in and around the box, and he can score all kind of goals as a striker. He can be a poacher as well as score headers and hold up play like a targetman. His impressive speed allows him to make runs between the defenders and it could be tough to stop a striker who has such well-rounded abilities.

Can Everton sign him?

Even last season with Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala at the club, Kean stayed at Juventus to fight for his place. Now that he has come that much closer to first-team football, we don’t see him moving away from Juventus. Everton’s only chance could be if contract talks between the player and the club break down. However, the Old Lady will be aware of his potential, and we don’t see them selling their prized asset. Marco Silva needs to realise that and look somewhere else to solve the problem of a striker.
