Fulham have opened talks with Juventus for Moise Kean.
That’s according to the Daily Mail, who have reported that the striker could make a dramatic comeback to the Premier League after Everton sold him in March.
The Toffees signed Kean in a deal worth £27.5 million in 2019, however the Italian managed only four goals in all competitions before spending a majority of his Everton career on loan at Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
Kean scored 30 goals for the two European giants before his stay in Turin was made permanent only five months ago. Juventus’ obligation-to-buy clause resulted in them coughing up around the same figure Everton paid four years prior.
With Kean yet to make an appearance for Juve this season, Fulham could now swoop in to bring the 23-year-old back to the English top flight. The two parties are in negotiations over a deal and the report claims that Massimiliano Allegri’s side could be tempted to sanction a sale to raise funds.
Fulham will hope Moise Kean can improve on his poor Everton spell
The Cottagers are looking to replace Aleksandar Mitrovic after he completed a £46 million move to Saudi Arabia at the weekend.

The London outfit have already snapped up Raul Jimenez from Wolves but are still on the hunt for a goalscorer to match the stats of their former striker.
Kean’s goal record at Goodison Park is certainly far from the heroics of Mitrovic, though Fulham will be hoping he can enjoy a second crack at Premier League football.
It would be typical of Everton to watch their former flop succeed at Craven Cottage, especially if Fulham end up in the same area of the table as Sean Dyche’s side.
