Amid transfer speculation surrounding Kean, Carlo Ancelotti has dropped a comment on the player’s future at Everton.

Carlo Ancelotti says Moise Kean would become an “important player” at Everton, with Paris Saint-Germain warned there is no guarantee that a permanent transfer will be allowed.

The Toffees allowed Kean to head for France during the summer window of 2020 on a season-long loan.

Kean has thrived at Parc des Princes, registering 16 goals for the Champions League semi-finalists. He is expected to be the subject of further interest this summer. Juventus are already interested in a move for their former starlet.

Elsewhere, PSG are yet to enter into talks regarding a permanent transfer and Ancelotti has left the door open for Kean to return to Goodison Park.

He said as per  The Telegraph: “I don’t have to convince [Kean] to stay at Everton. This is what the [loan] papers say. He is on loan and he has to come back.

“If Paris Saint-Germain want him they have to open discussions about him. We are open [to negotiations] but if nothing happens then he will be an Everton player next season and an important player.”

Ancelotti has already admitted that he is in the process of drawing up transfer plans on Merseyside. However, the club might not be all that intent on adding another striker to their ranks. Regardless, Moise Kean could still come in to serve as a proper back-up to Calvert-Lewin.

He added: “Honestly, we didn’t have a look at the market [for strikers] for next season because we are in the fight for European positions, but I can tell you that it [a striker] will not be the position we are looking for.

“In front we are really well covered because we have Dominic Calvert-Lewin, we have Richarlison, we have in this moment Joshua King and we have Moise Kean coming back.”
