Everton have upped their offer from €30m to €35m for Juventus forward, Moise Kean after getting their first bid rejected immediately.
Italian news outlet, Calciomercato claim that Maurizio Sarri is ready to offload the 19-year-old as he is surplus to his requirements. Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla are also thought to be interested in Kean but the Toffees are currently leading the charge.
The striker was impressive towards the end of the 2018/19 campaign, scoring 7 goals in 17 all over appearances. He is seen as one of the most promising youth prospects to come out of the Juventus Academy but might struggle for game time in the current setup.
Sarri was involved in a similar crisis with Callum Hudson-Odoi last season at Chelsea and the Italian boss does want to be pulled into another one at his new job. Getting rid of Kean, instead of being forced to play him seems to be the right approach.
The young striker was so impressive last term that he earned a callup to the Italian national team. In his 3 caps, he scored in the Euro 2020 qualifiers against both Finland and Liechtenstein.
Everton are without an established number nine after their previous record signing of Cenk Tosun turned out to be a flop. Oumar Niasse is expected to quit the Goodison Park this summer and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is just not good enough to lead the team’s attack.
Juventus are demanding a €40m buy-back clause for the teenage sensation which is turning out to be a problem for interested parties.
