GdS: Juve close in on Kean, Ramsey could join Everton

Juventus are closing in on a deal to re-sign Moise Kean from Everton, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The talented 20-year-old was sold to Everton a year ago for €27.5m plus €2.5m in add-ons.

However, he endured a difficult first year in England, finding the net only twice in 33 appearances.

Juventus want a ‘bulky’ striker and Kean fits the profile. Were he to arrive, he would deputise for the top striker – with Edin Dzeko, Arek Milik and Luis Suarez leading candidates for that role.

Kean is a product of the Juventus academy and from the age of 16 was dubbed the next big thing.

He was the first 2000-born player to play in Serie A and make his debut in the Champions League.

But he was sacrificed last summer for financial reasons, with Everton making a heavy investment to sign him.

Ramsey for Kean?

A year on and Juventus are working to bring Kean back on a two-year loan with an obligation to buy.

Another possibility is to sign him outright in a swap deal, with Gazzetta dello Sport saying Aaron Ramsey is the ‘hot name’ on that front.

Ramsey, 30, is a proven high-level player in the Premier League after an excellent eight-year spell with Arsenal.

The stumbling block there is Ramsey’s huge net salary of €7m-per-season.

Federico Bernardeschi is another name mentioned, but at the moment he is not a profile Everton are looking for.

Everton won’t stand in his way

The report further states that Everton would not stop Kean from returning to Turin.

It’s safe to say his first season in England was not positive, despite Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival at Goodison Park in December.

Kean also had some disciplinary issues, such as turning up late for training and violating Coronavirus social distancing rules.

Juventus believe that under the guidance of Andrea Pirlo, a perfect professional, they can iron out the flaws in Kean’s character.
