The Toffees are looking to get at least €50 million for the 21-year-old, who is currently out on loan at Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG are keen on converting the player’s loan deal into a permanent move but are hoping to negotiate his parent club’s asking price down.

Should the French champions fail to secure his transfer, a number of Italian clubs will join the race to sign Kean.

Leeds target Ajax defender

Leeds United are interested in signing Nicolas Tagliafico from Ajax, as per The Mirror.

Marcelo Bielsa has been deploying Ezgjan Alioski or Stuart Dallas at left-back. While the makeshift options have worked well, the Argentine manager wants a long-term solution.

Barca stall on Messi contract offer

Lionel Messi is yet to receive a formal renewal offer from FC Barcelona or club president Joan Laporta, reports Marca.

With the club in economic turmoil, the Catalan giants have decided to wait until they find financial stability before offering fresh terms to the mercurial Argentine.

Messi’s future at Camp Nou remains up in the air with his current deal due to run out at the end of the season.

Wolves determined to offload Traore

Adama Traore has been deemed surplus to requirements at Wolves as the club prepare to part ways with the player this summer.

Traore has suffered a massive slip in standards this season, having made a mere three goal contributions in 30 Premier League appearances. [Football Insider]
