Moise Kean - Everton Sign Juventus Striker

Recommended Posts

Nothing to really worry about, we have known about this transfer for weeks now and it's only a matter of time until its all sealed. Kean wants to come and Juventus want to sell, it's just a case of agreeing a fee. 

Yet more fantastic work from Brands and the scouting department at Everton. Making other teams look like fools.

How much do you expect is reasonable fee to pay?

They'll want at least €60 for him. His potential is immense

Should be able to crowdfund that amount before the deadline hopefully :ph34r:.

I have mixed feelings on this one. I never get too excited about players when there are murmurings of attitude problems. He's obviously a talent but if he's that good surely Juventus wouldn't have given up on him becoming a first team player for them so easily?

I don't think we should be investing anything in the £60m region, if that's actually what we'd have to pay, for any player, unless it's someone established who is obviously worth that much. Not on a young 'maybe' player with question marks over his attitude. We should stick to the template of our recent successful signings and look to sign players in their young 20s for £20m-£30m (Keane, Pickford, Digne, Gomes) because we've started to prove that it's achievable, then have maybe one per summer (if that) for a Sigurdsson/Richarlison level of cost.

I wouldn't mind Kean if he was worth more like £30m.

Kean only has a 1 year on his contract, Ajax are close to getting him part of de Ligt deal, also his agent is Raiola.

Matthijs de Ligt appears to be close to completing a move from Ajax to Juventus, the axis is hot and the Amsterdam club could be ready to utilise this to their advantage as they try and snap up the young Italian forward.

Kean would fit the MO of Ajax perfectly; he is young and extremely talented, would undoubtedly get first team minutes at the club and would be able to use the club as a stepping stone for a bigger move in the future.

Edit: Just spotted your post on Keane @Stan, my apologies and can you merge this one, please :ay:

Unless he's just trying to escape the racism in Italy, I don't know why he'd want to leave Juventus.

Buy back clause instantly makes this a bit of a minefield in my eyes. If he turns out brilliant you will lose him for a capped amount of profit. If he's shit, you've paid all the money. We made this exact mistake with Iheanacho.

I think Manchester City just put the buy back clause in to convince you that he was a good player. Anyone could see he was absolute garbage.

This is the latest going around. Sounds like the club are thrashing out the right deal for us.

I've got my suspicions that exactly this happened as well.

This one is gathering pace. Perhaps, after two years, the club is about to replace Lukaku with an out and out striker.

Reports: Kean to Everton done deal

Juventus striker Moise Kean is heading to Everton for €30m plus bonuses and will have a medical over the next 48 hours, claim multiple Italian reports.

Agent Mino Raiola communicated to various Italian transfer experts, including Sky Sport Italia, Mediaset Premium and Goal.com, that the deal was done.

It’s reported 19-year-old Kean will earn €3m per year at Everton and has already left the Continassa training camp in Turin to pack his bags.

The sticking point had been Juve’s insistence on retaining a buy-back option in his contract and it's not yet clear whether that is included.

More likely is a verbal agreement giving the Bianconeri first refusal if Everton decide to sell Kean in future, but not for a pre-agreed fee.

It’s believed Everton will pay €30m plus up to €10m in various bonuses and add-ons.

Kean set several records, as he was the first player born in the year 2000 to score in the top five European Leagues, achieving this in May 2017 against Bologna.

Despite only turning 19 in February, the Turin-born talent has already scored two goals in three senior caps for Italy.

Last season, he played just 661 minutes of football for Juventus in all competition, spread over 17 games, but still scored seven goals with one assist.

Kean is undoubtedly a natural talent, but it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for the teenager.

He used to say his idol was Mario Balotelli and he was dropped from the Italy Under-21 European Championship line-up as punishment for turning up late to training.

There’s a new Italian tax law to try to get rich people to move into Italy. You get massive tax breaks on moving to or moving back to Italy - but you aren’t eligible for this tax loophole unless you spend 3 (I think it’s 3) years outside Italy.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see lots of young Italians leave Serie A football for a few years before coming back to Italy

If that's true, I'm not too surprised. If you're a promising young striker, as annoying as it is to admit, Everton looks a pretty appealing side right now. They're best senior striker is Dominic Calvert-Lewin... so Kean's got a much, much easier path to regular first team football than he would if he had to try to break in against Aubamayang or Lacazette at Arsenal. You couple that with the way Everton under Silva have a pretty positive approach and is looking to shape a modern attack in a side that has that positive approach - and further couple that with how well Richarlison settled. Everton have the makings of an up and coming side and a decent project for a promising young striker to buy into.

It's an exciting signing for Everton and I think he'll do really well with Silva's Everton, unfortunately. I think the biggest danger from Everton's point of view is that he may want to go back to Italy at some point, I think part of why he left is there are so many attackers at Juve for him to compete with and it's not good for his career to stay where he won't play to develop. But they've managed to avoid a buyback clause, so it's not just a glorified loan deal - and Juve have first refusal.

The way they play, the potential of the player (and the fact he already looks pretty fucking decent), and that every Evertonian I personally know has been crying out that they need a striker for basically as long as they've been without Lukaku… they all make this look like a great signing on paper for the blueshite.

One hand on the summer transfer window trophy again. Just need a winger, centre back and right back.

Difficult for you to have one hand when we have both hands on it ;)

Also don't let Sky's £36.5m fool you. They're just trying to boost their "total transfer spending" tracker for this summer, continue to inflate the transfer market and possibly keeping their "Everton spending all this money" narrative in their back pocket in case things go pear shaped for us this season.

From Juventus:

No buy-back? Very well done in which case. Pretty small sample size of games from him so far so hard to judge if he's the star many tout him as but you've got to say that's an exciting buy regardless.

I given him a month before he starts skipping training, and catching flights back to Italy.

Again, I've not seen enough of him to judge. He's young and in a new league in a foreign country, so he will need time.

But he carries a fair degree of pedigree having come from Juve, and given he scored something like 5 goals in his last 6 games for them shows he's got something about him.

One thing I would say is that this is an example of the level of ambition that Everton have gradually been looking to change to, and shows the good work Brandes is doing in knowing Kean was potentially available and gettable for a club like Everton. 

There will be players in Europe who will look at Everton in a different light now because someone as highly rated as Kean is going there. Good times.

'I would say I will score seven as a minimum,' he told reporters at his press conference on Tuesday, as report the Liverpool Echo

Expectations are high:ph34r:
