Everton are closing in on Moise Kean and some supporters can’t believe the Juventus striker is on his way to Goodison Park. The Toffees have needed another centre-forward to compete with Dominic Calvert-Lewin for a starting place, but few would have thought it possible that a deal could be agreed for the 19-year-old.

Kean initially shone at youth level in Turin, scoring 29 goals in 36 games for the u17s, bagging two goals in five for the u19s and contributing 17 goals in 20 for the reserves. For the first-team, he’s had his hand in nine goals in 21 outings and has two in three internationals for Italy. His future has been uncertain, however, due to Cristiano Ronaldo & Paulo Dybala being ahead in the pecking order.

Supporters are right to be excited. Kean has impressed at youth and senior level for Juventus, is a considerable upgrade on Calvert-Lewin and should add a lot more goals to the squad this season. Arsenal and Inter Milan were among the clubs being linked with his signature in recent weeks, but Everton have pulled off a masterclass beating out the competition. Marcel Brands will take the plaudits.

  • Gonna need to wait until he is in the shirt with the pen hoovering over the contract still dripping wet ink after signing!! See Brands is getting the plaudits notwithstanding the great business done with Guye which has been overshadowed, me thinks we are in safe hands. COYB
