Everton transfer news: Toffees sign €40m Moise Kean from Serie A champions Juventus

Big things are expected of the former Bianconeri youth soccer professional, who has signed on at Goodison Park until 2024

Everton have confirmed the capture of highly rated Juventus teenager Moise Kean in a deal worth an initial €27.5 million (£25m/$31m)

The deal could grow to become worth up to €30m (£27m/$33m) with add-ons, with Kean set to earn €3m (£2.75m/$3.3m) a year on Merseyside across a five-year contract.

Kean, who has been capped three times by his country, scored six goals in 13 Serie A appearances last term.

“I am very proud and honoured to wear the Everton shirt. I will give my best to this team,” the Toffees’ latest signing told evertontv.

“I was convinced to sign because Everton has been a club looking to the future and so am I. I know about the size of the Club. It has big ambition and I will work very hard to help us fulfil what we want to achieve.

“I am used to winning and I want to bring this winning attitude to the team. I hope I will be very good on the field and bring the fans joy.”

Marco Silva’s side will be looking to improve upon an eighth-place finish in the Premier League last season and identified the young Italian as a shrewd addition to a club looking to make forward strides.

“A striker was one of our priority signings this summer,” Silva said in the wake of Kean’s signing.

“Moise has been strong, fast, with many good qualities as a striker and he has been just 19 years old. He has talent and he has been ready to work, ready to improve our squad and gives us different solutions.

“Of course he was at a big club, now he’s come to another big club and has been ready to fight for this challenge and to give everything to Everton Football Club.”

Kean becomes the club’s fifth summer signing following the arrivals of former Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, Idrissa Gueye’s replacement Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph and Andre Gomes after he made his loan move from Barcelona permanent.

Ademola Lookman and Nikola Vlasic joined Gueye in leaving the club this summer, the pair joining RB Leipzig and CSKA Moscow, respectively.

Everton’s Premier League campaign begins on August 10 with a trip to Crystal Palace.
