Everton Slap €50m Price Tag On This Italian Centre-Forward: Good Move By Ancelotti?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Calciomercato revealed that Everton have slapped a €50m price tag on Moise Kean, who is currently playing on loan at Paris Saint-Germain. It has been reported that both PSG and the Italian centre-forward want to make his loan move permanent but the Toffees are preparing to hold firm on their €50m valuation of the player (via Calciomercato).

Kean’s Impressive Loan Spell In French Football

Kean is having an impressive season at the French capital after finding some consistency in terms of goal-scoring as the spearhead of the PSG attack. The Vercelli-born youngster has banged in 15 goals and secured one assist in 29 matches for the Parisian giants this term in various competitions.

The 21-year-old deserves a pat on the back for averaging 2.1 shots and 1.0 dribbles per game in the Ligue 1. He has even distributed the ball relatively well after making 78.4% of his attempted passes in the top tier of French football (stats via whoscored).

Kean has shown some promising signs during his loan at Paris, so it makes sense for both Everton and the player to come to a reasonable solution and part ways with each other at the end of this campaign. However, the Toffees have still got him under contract at Goodison Park until the summer of 2024. Hence, they have every reason to play hardball and should only let him go if PSG decide to match their €50m valuation.

What Does The Italian Striker Offer On The Field?

Kean has decent pace in his locker and can make some encouraging runs both with and without the ball in the final third. He can be a decent finisher in front of the opposition goal when he is playing with confidence on the pitch.

Securing regular game time at the Parc des Princes has helped Kean find some consistency which has once again raised his stock in the European transfer market. Kean has done well to bang in some important goals for the Ligue 1 heavyweights this season, so Everton will be optimistic that they can get a sizable fee for him during the summer transfer window. Despite his failures in the Premier League last season, the player has the potential to become a world-class striker someday.

Everton Slap €50m Price Tag On Kean: Good Move By The Toffees?

The Merseyside club’s decision to put a €50m price tag on Kean seems like a wise move by them as PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino will be eager to land him permanently in this off-season. The French club has the funds to pull off such a transfer, so Ancelotti could net a hefty sum and will be responsible for using it wisely to fund a move for a new forward who can serve as a decent back-up to Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Goodison Park in the coming seasons.
