Juventus have completed the signing of Italian striker Moise Kean on a two-year loan with an obligation to buy from Everton, according to Fabrizio Romano.
He is set to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the Turin giants for Manchester United. The Italian international will undergo a medical on Sunday and the total potential fee will be around €20 million. After securing the signing of Kean, Juventus are no longer planning to make a move for Eden Hazard or Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, as per Fabrizio Romano.
Juventus Reach Agreement for Moise Kean
Moise Kean Returns to Turin
The Italian international returns to Turin after joining Everton from the Bianconeri in 2019. He has struggled during his time at Everton, scoring just twice in 29 Premier League appearances. However, he had an electrifying spell on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 13 goals in 26 Ligue 1 games. It is that type of form that has persuaded Juventus that he is the man to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
Also, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri knows Kean very well. After all, it was Allegri who gave Kean his professional debut in 2016 when he was only 16 years old. He will feel as though he can get the best out of him once again.
Meanwhile, Everton are desperate to offload players as they need to sell before they can buy anyone. Kean’s final match for Everton saw him being sent-off in their Carabao Cup win against Huddersfield. That epitomised his Everton spell which was largely underwhelming.
Juventus Look to Replace Cristiano Ronaldo
Following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus have to somehow find someone to replace him. Ronaldo scored an incredible 101 goals in 134 appearances for the Old Lady. It is very unlikely that Kean will be able to replicate Ronaldo’s numbers. However, Kean has a lot of attractive attributes. Allegri is a big fan and despite feeling that he has been around forever, Kean is still only 21-years-old.
Juventus will feel that the Italian has unfinished business at the club and, with a manager who knows him well, will be able to get the best out of him. They also want to focus on a team collective rather than individuals and share the goals around. With the likes of Paulo Dybala, Federico Chiesa, Alvaro Morata, and now Moise Kean that should be achieved.
