French champions PSG have announced the signing of Italian forward Moise Kean on a season-long loan from Everton.

Everton forward Moise Kean will spend the rest of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Italy international will join the French giants in a move that does not include an obligation to buy.

Kean has made 37 appearances for the Toffees since he joined from Juventus in a €30 million deal last August.

But the 20-year-old has struggled to settle at Goodison Park, netting just four goals to date. Two of them have come in this season’s Carabao Cup.

Kean has seen limited game time by Carlo Ancelotti in the top-flight this term. So far, he has just 13 minutes under his belt off the bench across the first four games of the season, including a one-minute cameo against Tottenham.

That struggle for minutes has compounded an already frustrating stay at Everton that saw him criticized by the club for the decision to throw a house party during the first coronavirus lockdown in April.

Kean now has a new fresh breath of air with PSG and will hope to re-discover his good form that saw him billed as one with much ‘potential’.

“I am really proud and happy to become a Paris Saint-German player,” Kean told the club’s website. “It is one of the best clubs in the world as shown by their Champions League campaign last season where they reached the final.

“I am delighted to join such an ambitious club with such a strong reputation in my country. I look forward to playing alongside some of the best players in the world.”
