After Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit, Juventus have moved swiftly to reinforce their attacking line by re-signing Moise Kean.

Juventus have struck an agreement with Everton to re-sign Moise Kean before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

With Cristiano Ronaldo gone, Juventus began an immediate search for forwards to reinforce their attack. Kean, a product of the club’s youth system, was their priority.

Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri, who worked with the 21-year-old in his first spell in charge, approved the move and, therefore, the club board began negotiations with Everton.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the two clubs have reached a loan agreement for Kean. Juventus will take back the forward on loan but will have to sign him permanently if certain conditions are met. The transfer fee could be worth around €20 million.

Kean, who was keen on a return to Juventus after a season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, has already agreed on personal terms with his former club.

Sky Sports has added the Italy international will be on loan for the next two seasons and should arrive in Turin within 24 hours.

Despite reports linking Arsenal captain Pierre Aubameyang and Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard to Juventus, a move to Italy for the pair is an unlikely prospect.
