Moise Kean has not yet proved to be a hit at Everton. The Italian striker has not scored for the club since his reported (The Guardian) £29 million transfer from Juventus.
After he missed Everton’s most recent game with Southampton because of a disciplinary matter it is already being suggested that Kean could be on his way out of the club in January.
The likes of AC Milan, Sampdoria and AS Roma are all being linked with a move for the player and a recent report from Corriere dello Sport suggested Everton have a ‘willingness to negotiate’ his exit.
The vast majority of Everton fans will feel that is a mistake. Kean is just 19-years-old and clearly has potential. Hopefully, with time, he will develop into a first-team star at Goodison Park.
That said, it is clear to see why Everton might be interested in selling him now.
The problem is that if Kean does continue to struggle, Everton will never be able to get their money back for a player who cost such a large sum.
Everton have lost out on millions in recent times with the overspend on the likes of Yannick Bolasie, Ashley Williams and Davy Klaassen. The latter, in particular, shares parallels. A wanted commodity at Ajax, he was soon being sold at a fraction of the price to Werder Bremen.
Hopefully, Kean can turn things around and become a superstar for Everton. However, if they decide the risk is too high, then January is, financially, the best time for the club to do a deal.
