Everton are still pushing for the signature of Juventus striker Moise Kean despite the Italian champions insisting they’d only sanction the deal with a buy-back clause.

 

The 19-year-old striker was in superb form last season for both club and country scoring 9 goals in the process.

However, with the return of Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic also still in the squad, chances are high he will move to another club to gain experience with regular playing time.

According to Football Italia, the Bianconeri are prepared to sell Kean, but only if there is a buy-back clause included to ensure he can return to Turin.

Clubs including Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Fiorentina, Ajax, Barcelona and Wolves have been linked, but Everton is the most consistent candidates.

They could sign the teenager for €35m, but the Toffees are trying to pay more to scrap the buy-back clause.

Kean is a product of the Juve academy, so they do not intend to sell him without some sort of insurance about his future.

By selling rather than just a plain loan deal, they hope to monetise the temporary departure too.
