Moise Kean: Juventus close to re-signing Everton striker after Cristiano Ronaldo's exit

Juventus are close to re-signing Moise Kean on a two-year loan with an obligation to buy the Everton forward for £17m.

Kean is due in Turin in the next 24 hours ahead of being announced as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo following his departure and return to Manchester United on Friday.

Italy international Kean joined Everton on a five-year deal from the Serie A club in 2019 for a fee of around £27m.

The 21-year-old scored two goals in 29 appearances during his first campaign at Everton before he spent last season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain where he scored 18 goals in 40 matches in all competitions.

Kean was sent off during Everton’s League Cup win at Huddersfield on Tuesday – his second appearance of the season under Rafael Benitez.
