We’ve been talking about Moise Kean for some time now, and every time it’s looked like there’s no deal happening there, something else happens and changes the entire dynamic.

To recap, Everton have indicated their interest in the player, looked like it was going places, and then were even rumoured to have made a generous offer to eliminate any buyback or first refusal clause that Juventus are insisting upon.

However, Juve summarily dismissed that offer and went on their merry way signing defender Matthijs de Ligt. But the Bianconeri’s inability to get rid of Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic means the window has opened up for the Toffees again, according to Sky Sports Italia (via Football Italia).

The report goes on to say that a move to Barcelona was dismissed by the player’s representatives as the Catalans were simply going to loan him out to Sevilla right away. Arsenal remain interested but it’s Everton who fired the first shot with the offer of €30m. German side Borussia Dortmund have been in the news recently too.

Juve could be amenable to taking more money upfront in exchange for removing the first refusal clause in the deal, but that remains to be seen. The 19-year-old Kean has scored eight goals in just 21 senior team games for Juventus, and has a further two in three senior Italy appearances.
