Everton ace Moise Kean could find himself returning to Paris Saint-Germain, following a tough time during his loan at Juventus.
Kean has been somewhat of a journeyman over the past few seasons. Indeed, he has had five spells with three different clubs since 2019.
The Italian made the permanent move from Juventus to Everton in August that year. Since then he has been loaned out to PSG and back to Juventus, with a short spell back at Goodison splitting those terms.
The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Juve, but has had a tumultuous time. Since the arrival of Dusan Vlahovic in January, Kean is yet to start a game.
As such, he may well be on the move yet again. PSG are reportedly keen on taking Kean back to the club, per Tuttosport.
The forward had the best spell of his career during his loan in Paris in the 2020/21 season. He scored 13 league goals and bagged three in the Champions League during the loan spell.
That being said, PSG’s reported interest in taking him back to the club makes sense. Kean ‘would not have been unwelcome at Paris Saint-Germain’ in January, per the report.
What’s more, Kylian Mbappe is likely to move in the summer, when his contract is up. The likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool are interested in the Frenchman.

Mbappe moving on would pave the way for Kean to return, and as the main striker at the club.
Everton would likely have no issues with shipping the striker out. He has made just 39 appearances for the club since joining, and the loan moves away mean he is presumably surplus to requirements.
Kean could move on but Lampard will recruit
In other news, Everton boss Frank Lampard is expected to recruit well in the summer. His Chelsea connections could see him monitor some promising young talent in the next window, thinks Dean Jones.
“Frank Lampard will keep a close eye on Gilmour, Broja and Gallagher situations at Chelsea over the summer. I’ll be amazed if at least one of them doesn’t join Everton by next season,” he said.
While Gallagher is already being sized up as Chelsea’s next midfield star, that move is unlikely.
However, moves for Broja and Gilmour could be more feasible.
