Juventus and PSG are battling in every possible way to get ahead in the Moise Kean race. Everton have minimal chances of holding onto the striker for next season and instead, selling him will allow the Toffees to have extra transfer chest for the summer window.
His spectacular goalscoring record in Paris has inflated his market value and the Toffees could be prepared for a huge windfall. The Bianconeri and PSG are leaving no stone unturned to sign Kean. The loan deal doesn’t include a buy clause which keeps Juventus in the game as well, giving them an equal chance to convince the Italian striker to return to Turin.

The Old Lady made several attempts last summer to bring him to the Allianz Stadium but the 21-year-old eventually went to PSG. Les Rouge et Bleu have made up their mind to sign Kean but the negotiations remain tricky. Mauricio Pochettino includes Kean in his first-team plans and would love to keep him beyond this season.
The uncertain future of Mauro Icardi could mean that Kean becomes an undisputable starter next season if PSG manages to acquire Kean’s services. PSG’s sporting director Leonardo has already established contacts with the striker’s agent, Mino Raiola.
As for Juventus, the 21-year-old is one of the top priorities for Fabio Paratici this summer. Juve let go of Kean in 2019 for budget reasons but now they aim to have him back and revitalize the attack. Juventus are willing to offer a player in exchange for Kean as well.
Juventus willing to offer Adrien Rabiot to Everton for Moise Kean
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus director Paratici has made Kean a priority and is thinking of negotiating with Everton in a creative manner. A player exchange is not ruled out. The Old Lady are willing to offer Adrien Rabiot as a part of the deal. This is where it gets interesting. Everton have been linked with Rabiot for eternity now.
The Frenchman is in Juve’s exodus list as they rebuild the squad. His annual salary of €7 million euros is hurting Juventus’ finances and selling him will generate cash and free up the wage budget. But if a part-exchange deal is agreed, Everton will acquire one of their most wanted targets in Rabiot and also get some cash for selling Kean.
However, the ultimate decision will rest on the 21-year-old, whether he wants to go back to Turin or stay with PSG.
