• Everton striker Moise Kean is set to take his act to Paris Saint-Germain
  • Kean is looking to get more exposure during his season-long loan
  • Everton may explore the market for a player before the transfer deadline

After failing to get anything going with Everton FC, Moise Kean is taking his act to Le Parc des Princes for the rest of the season. The Toffees and Paris Saint-Germain have agreed to a loan deal for the Italian striker, who was acquired last year from Juventus.

Kean made only 37 appearances for Bianconeri across all competitions, scoring only four goals, ESPN reported. The 20-year-old striker has struggled to land a spot in the first-team of Carlo Ancelotti since arriving at Goodison Park, but he is hoping his fortunes will change moving forward.

With the contracts of Edinson Cavani and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting expiring at the end of the season, Kean could be a timely addition for PSG. He is expected to be part of the attacking options of Ancelotti which also include Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi. He will also be reunited with Italian teammates Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi at Les Parisiens.

"It is one of the best clubs in the world as shown by their Champions League campaign last season where they reached the final,” Kean told PSG’s official website. "I look forward to playing alongside some of the best players in the world."

Given that he is joining a club with plenty of big names, things are not going to be easy for the Italian striker. Seeing how he struggled to make the grade for Ancelotti, it may be even harder for him at PSG.

There were high expectations for Kean when he joined the Toffees, but the fine play of Dominic Calvert-Lewin made life difficult for the 20-year-old. That added to his struggles to get first-team opportunities.

However, the exit of Kean also leaves holes for Everton. The club doesn’t have a backup for Calvert-Lewin, and Ancelotti may need to look at other players, The Athletic reported. Richarlison de Andrade has been starting at the left, while Ellis Simms is a young promising player who is considered to be a work-in-progress.

Everton could prowl the market for another player, but time is not on their side. The transfer deadline is almost here so finding a last-minute replacement may be tough. Among the players the club could consider are Arkadiusz Milik and Fernando Llorente.
