Report: Champions League club now desperately trying to back out of £34m agreement with Everton

According to Calciomercato, Juventus and Moise Kean have attempted to break their agreement with Everton, but with little success.

Moise Kean still set to leave Everton

According to the Italian news outlet, Juventus are obligated to buy the Italy international in a deal worth €38m (£34m) at the end of the current campaign.

The Italian giants shook hands with Everton on that sum before taking Kean on a two-year loan deal, where he has failed to live up to expectations.

So far this season, the 22-year-old is yet to score in eight appearances for Juventus, following another tough campaign last term.

In 44 appearances last season, Kean scored just six goals, and now looks a shadow of the striker Juventus agreed to pay £34m to sign permanently in the summer of 2023.

Calciomercato believe both Kean and Juventus attempted to get out of the agreement over the summer, although they could not find a club willing to take the £34m deal off their hands.

Therefore, unless there is a surprise development, Everton will still receive their £34m.

Everton have done well with Moise Kean deal

After the Italian scored just four goals in 39 appearances for Everton following his £29m move in 2019, nobody would’ve expected the Toffees to actually make a profit on that investment.

However, they have managed it – albeit with plenty of help from the currently rudderless Juventus.

It was a shame to see Kean struggle on Merseyside, but when £34m is put into the bank balance next summer, it will give Frank Lampard the funds to add more quality to his side after a promising summer of recruitment.

Everton did well over the summer when signing Amadou Onana, Conor Coady, James Tarkowski, Idrissa Gueye, James Garner and others, so when that £34m arrives, we expect big things from Lampard and Kevin Thelwell.
