Everton signed Moise Kean with hopes of him scoring all-important goals but the young Italian forward has struggled for form in Merseyside. 

Playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Moise Kean scored 7 goals in 17 appearances for Juventus. With Gonzalo Higuain returning to Allianz Stadium, Kean was unhappy with a marginal role.

Everton were impressed with what the young forward had to offer and pounced on him. He joined the Toffees in a €27 million deal. 

Not even his ardent rivals would have conjured the script of his career at Everton. Kean failed to adapt to his new surroundings, scoring a paltry 2 goals and laying down a further 2 assists in 29 Premier League outings. 

Mino Raiola wants his client to return to Serie A. AC Milan have been linked with his services. 

However, Everton do not want to lose him and Carlo Ancelotti still ranks him highly. Ancelotti diffused transfer speculations about Kean and believes that he will improve in the coming campaign. 

“Of course, he is a player we need to give support to, because he is young,” TalkSPORT quoted Ancelotti.

“He came here from Italy, so it was a new adaptation for him, a new country. Also, he was alone during the lockdown and so it was not an easy season for him.”

“But this season can give him more experience and more knowledge. He will be better and play more next season.”
