Moise Kean set to join Paris Saint-Germain on loan after being frozen out at Everton

PSG are reportedly closing in on the loan signing of Everton striker Moise Kean. The news from Fabrizio Romano is that the French club will be paying his full wages in his one-season stay.

Kean would likely challenge PSG’s main-striker Mauro Icardi and gain some much-needed game time. He will replace Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who is reported to be a target signing for Bayern Munich themselves. But more importantly, Kean seems to no longer be in the plans of Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti. 

Brought in with much hype and sensation from Juventus, it has clearly not worked out for Kean at Everton. Having paid a £30 million fee for him, the Toffees have constantly relied on Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison to take up the centre forward duties. Kean had a breakout season with Juventus in 2018/19 when he scored 6 goals in 13 appearances for the club.

Following that, Everton bought him so that they could ease the load on Calvert-Lewin, or perhaps even displace him to become the main No. 9.

But, Kean is still too young to redeem himself at the age of 20 years. At Paris Saint Germain, he will get the opportunities to showcase some of that pace and dribbling skills.

Standing tall at 183 cm, he also offers a different dimension to PSG’s attack. Acting as the target man, he could convert chances with a team that has excellent crossers of the ball such as Florenzi, Sarabia, Bernat and others.

Kean can also play as an inside forward on the left flank. This could mean that Neymar can slot in behind Icardi at CAM, with Kean on the left flank and Mbappe on the right. It is definitely a season of expectations for young Moise Kean, and this is his chance to show that he has still got it in him to perform at the highest level.
