The Italian striker has sprung to life in Ligue 1 after having had a hard time finding his goalscoring touch while in the Premier League.

Everton will consider selling Moise Kean to Paris Saint-Germain, confirms Carlo Ancelotti as he stresses the importance of keeping the player happy.

After a poor season at Everton, Kean joined PSG last summer on a loan deal until June 2021.

The 20-year-old has thrived ever since the change in environment, scoring 11 goals across the Champions League and Ligue 1 in 18 appearances for the French champions.

Kean’s revival has encouraged PSG to explore the possibility of a permanent transfer.

Reports claim that the Toffees are open to getting the young striker off their books but are hoping to recoup more than the £27 million they paid to Juventus for him.

“He is having a really good experience at Paris Saint-Germain,” Ancelotti told Sky Sports News. “He is scoring a lot of goals, he shows his quality. He is our player and he will be back in June.

“All the time we have to take into consideration what the player thinks because the players are human. If the player wants to come back we will be happy to have him, if the player wants to stay with Paris Saint-Germain, we have to talk with Paris Saint-Germain.

“Whatever the player likes, I don’t want a player back who is not happy to come [back]. If the player is happy to come, he is welcome back.”
