Everton forward Moise Kean signs a long-term contract with Juventus

Italian striker Moise Kean has rejoined Juventus from Everton on a permanent transfer for 28m euros (£25m).

The 23-year-old has spent the past two seasons on loan at the Serie A team, and Juventus has fulfilled its commitment to purchase the forward.

The amount, which includes bonuses of £2.5 million, was decided upon in August 2021.

Kean, who has 12 Italy caps, cost £25 million to initially sign with the Toffees in 2019, but he only scored four goals in 39 outings across all competitions.

Moreover, he spent a season on loan at Paris St-Germain, where he won the French Cup and scored 17 goals in 41 games.

Kean has 13 goals in 74 games for Juventus and has won the Coppa Italia and two league championships.

In the 1-0 loss against Roma on Sunday, he was dismissed 40 seconds after entering the game as a substitute.

Kean signed with Juventus when he was barely 10 years old, and in 2016, at the age of 16, he made his first-team debut.

Juventus are seventh in Serie A after being docked 15 points in January following an inquiry into the club’s prior transfer activities.

Everton has already sold two key players this year after Anthony Gordon, a forward, left for Newcastle in January for £45 million.
