Everton are reportedly prepared to offer Moise Kean as a makeweight as they seek to land the signature of Lazio striker Ciro Immobile this summer.

Kean has failed to impress during his debut season with the Toffees and he has netted just once from 22 appearances in the Premier League.

As a result, he has found himself playing second fiddle to Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the centre-forward role and he has been tipped to return to the Serie A.

According to TEAMtalk, the Toffees are keen on landing the services of Immobile from Lazio and they are willing to offer Kean as a makeweight to significantly reduce the £43m price tag.

Immobile, 30, has been in stupendous form for Lazio with 30 goals from just 33 appearances and his form has helped the club keep pace with Juventus at the top of the league standings.

The Serie A outfit are presently just one point behind the Bianconeri for the first spot and they have the chance of ending their two decade-long wait for the Scudetto, when the season resumes after the coronavirus shutdown.

Meanwhile, it is suggested that Lazio could be tempted to exchange Immobile for Kean, given the latter has the potential and is still at the beginning of his playing career unlike the latter.
