Liverpool fans react after hearing Everton will sign Moise Kean

Liverpool fans cheer their side on during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on May 12, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Everton are reportedly set to snap up striker Moise Kean.

Moise Kean of Italy looks on prior to the 2019 UEFA U-21 Group A match between Italy and Poland at Renato Dall'Ara Stadium on June 19, 2019 in Bologna, Italy.

Everton have been quiet in the transfer market in recent weeks, but the sale of Idrissa Gueye to Paris Saint-Germain is sparking them into life.

A midfielder will be needed to replace Gueye, but the Toffees are pushing for a new striker first – and they appear to be closing in on a huge coup.

The Mirror report that Juventus striker Moise Kean is set for a medical with Everton, ahead of a shock move to Goodison Park.

 

Everton will be paying an initial £25million for Kean, rising to £36million, and whilst Juventus wanted a buy-back clause, they've had to settle for a first option in a future deal.

It's enough of a coup to get Kean in the first place, but to make sure that Juventus don't have a buy-back clause is quite remarkable.

Kean, 19, hit six goals in just 13 games for Juventus last season, which is even more impressive when you realise that only five of those games came as a starter.

The Italian looks set for a huge future, and many are stunned that Juventus have let him go, leaving Liverpool fans to react to their city rivals securing such an impressive deal.

Some have no idea how Everton have pulled off such a deal, believing he's a superb signing and an 'absolute steal' for the Toffees at the price quoted, with many wondering just why Liverpool are sitting back and allowing teams to gain ground on them with such impressive deals.
