French football expert Julien Laurens applauds Everton on Moise Kean as on Loan strike continues to impress at Paris Saint-Germain.
Toffees missed on Kean goals after letting him join PSG on loan this season given how brilliant he’s been. Moise struggled hugely at Goodison Park before joining PSG where he has seen a good run on form. Last season he scored just two goals in 33 appearances compared to 15 goals in 27 matches for the PSG.
Kean has proven his worth to £29million the Toffees paid Juventus for his services but unfortunately in Parisian colors. He is supporting the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe upfront.
However, Laurens believes Everton still has an advantage in the negotiations should PSG try to sign him on a permanent deal.
“It was very clever by Everton and [director of football] Marcel Brands not to put any option to buy there because if he hadn’t done well in France he would have come back, then he’d start again,” Laurens said.
“Carlo Ancelotti arrived in December where I think he had other priorities other than to get Moise Kean back on form. Maybe Carlo could take on that project if Moise Kean was going back to Everton,” he added.
“There’s so much talent there, I don’t really know why it didn’t happen for him at Everton. I think he would succeed anywhere if you gave him the time. Let’s not forget he’s 21 years of age,” Laurens continued.
“And now Everton can pick the price. PSG doesn’t have much money to spend in the summer. Unlike the big clubs as they’re working hard on renewing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe’s contract,” he states.
“The idea from PSG’s point of view is they’ll want a good price for him. Don’t ask for £50million because that’s not going to happen. Around £30million is a good price, perhaps a bit more because of his age and the good season he’s having.
“Or maybe you loan him again and put in an option to buy for £40m for PSG when they have more money. That’s the way I think PSG will approach it. But if Everton wants the money they can’t go too high,” he suggested.
