Moise Kean news

Everton favourites to land Moise Kean

Everton are reportedly leading the race to secure the signature of Moise Kean from Juventus during this summer's transfer window.

The teenager made his breakthrough with the Bianconeri during the previous campaign where contributed seven goals from 17 appearances.

According to Sky Sports News, the Serie A holders are prepared to sanction the forward's sale this summer, provided they are able to insert a buy-back clause in the permanent transfer agreement.

The same publication claims that the Toffees are leading the hunt for the 19-year-old ahead of several other European sides and a deal could be finalised, provided they are willing to meet the Bianconeri's demands.

Kean, who was linked with the likes of Arsenal and Barcelona earlier in the transfer window, is likely to cost the Toffees around £36m despite him being at the early stages of his professional career.

Meanwhile, the Toffees have been boosted in their bid to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace after Arsenal switched their attention to land the services of Nicolas Pepe from Lille.
