The 20-year-old has made an impressive start to life in the French capital, netting four goals in as many games for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
Moise Kean Will Return to Everton Next Season, Says Carlo Ancelotti
Kean Playing an Important Role in Paris
The Italy striker’s early-season form for PSG has brought the spotlight back upon Everton, with fans and pundits alike wondering what the future holds for the former Juventus player.
Kean recently netted twice for his new side in a victory over struggling Dijon in Ligue 1 and followed up with another double in a Champions League success away at Istanbul Basaksehir.
Additionally, Kean looks set to continue his starring role in PSG’s illustrious attack. Fellow forward Neymar suffered a groin injury in the early stages of that win in Istanbul and is expected to be out until late November. The Brazilian’s absence opens the door for Kean to enjoy an extended run of games in the side.
Ancelotti Expects Kean to Return to Merseyside Next June
The terms of Kean’s loan deal stipulate that the striker will remain a PSG player until 30 June 2021. Given that the loan does not include the option to buy, Everton boss Ancelotti is expecting his compatriot to return to his parent club – where he is under contract until 2024 – at the end of the season.
The Liverpool Echo are reporting that Ancelotti views Kean’s good form as a positive for all parties. Prior to the 61-year-old’s arrival as manager last season, Kean struggled badly for goals and performances. He even suffered the ignominy of being brought off 18 minutes after coming on as a substitute in Everton’s draw at Manchester United in the Premier League last December.
Overall last season, Kean only managed two goals in all competitions, a tally he has already tripled in just eight matches so far this campaign.
