Everton star hints at future decision after productive loan spell

Moise Kean insists his full focus is on Paris Saint-Germain during his loan spell from Everton this season.

Kean left Everton after a disappointing first season to join PSG on loan in the summer. The move to France seems to be helping him get back on track; he has five goals in his first seven Ligue 1 games.

If that form continues, then attention could soon turn to a permanent transfer. There have been rumours of a €20m option to buy in his contract, although there was no formal confirmation when the move was announced.

Everton will no doubt be watching on with intrigue as well. They have not struggled for goals this season thanks to the form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but it never harms to have another goalscorer in the squad.

Carlo Ancelotti knows that, and Kean remains a player he rates highly. Therefore, he will be interested to see what the 20-year-old’s future plans are.

Ahead of PSG’s game against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Tuesday, Kean revealed that he is enjoying the experience in France.

“I’m focused on PSG for now,” he said. “It’s a good thing for me and you never know in the future.

“Ligue 1 is a good league, you can learn a lot.”

Kean talks Icardi competition

Kean’s instant impression in the French capital is particularly impressive given that he is competing with Mauro Icardi for a starting spot.

Icardi is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous strikers around, but Kean has had to cover for him during an injury – and has made the most of the chance.

When Icardi returns, though, Kean will be relishing the competition.

“Mauro is one of the best strikers in the world,” he said.

“He’s injured for now and when he comes back, it’ll be a good competition. I’m looking to give myself 100%.”
