A return to Everton would be “difficult” for Moise Kean with his brother holding out hope a second spell at Italian giants Juventus is on the cards, speaking to Tuttosport.
If the Toffees felt a loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain was exactly what Kean needed as the 21-year-old striker looked to get his career back on track, it’s fair to say things have worked out well in the French capital.
After tumbling down the pecking order under Carlo Ancelotti – his game time restricted to the odd cup cameo – the Italy international has been a man reborn across the Channel.
In 34 games, Kean has scored 16 goals for PSG, impressing Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino with his energy, work rate and line-leading prowess.
Where the youngster is plying his trade next term, however, is anyone’s guess.
Last week, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti told the Telegraph the club would be “open” to discussing a permanent departure, although a £43 million price tag represents a substantial stumbling block in covid times.
Kean’s brother, however, harbours hopes of a return to Turin for a man who made his name in the black and white of Juventus.
“I am proud Juve think back to my brother. Juventus is a family for my brother. They raised him as a man and a footballer,” Giovanni Kean Dosse explains.
“Let’s say it seems difficult to me that he will return to Everton, despite the fact his contract is owned by the English (club). And I assure you, he is very comfortable at PSG.
“Then, in football, you never know, anything can happen. As a Juventus fan, I hope Moise will return to Juventus. At the right moment my brother and (agent Mino) Raiola will choose the best option.”
With Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s recent injury problems highlighting a lack of real depth available to Ancelotti in the number nine role, Everton could certainly do worse than hand the rejuvenated Kean a second chance on Merseyside.
