Everton’s first attempt to lure the super-talented Juventus forward Moise Kean to Goodison Park has been rebuffed by the Bianconeri, according to the reports from England
Astonishing performances in the second half of the season have seen the 19-year-old emerging as one of the hottest properties in Europe.
Six goals and an assist in just five Serie A starts have also earned him a call-up to the Italy national team, for whom he has also netted two goals.
Widely regarded as the most promising youngster in Italy, Kean has drawn interest upon his burgeoning talent, with Ajax also keeping close tabs on the former Verona man.

However, Everton have made a concrete step towards completing the signing, having tabled a £27m bid for the pacey forward.
Still, the Toffees will have to return with an improved offer if they want to wrap up the deal as the Turin-based giants rejected the Merseysiders’ initial attempt.
Kean’s future at the Allianz Stadium still hangs in the air, as the reigning Serie A holders still explore the possibility of inserting him as a makeweight in a deal to take Matthijs de Ligt to Turin.
Also, considering that Maurizio Sarri has Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Federico Bernardeschi, and Mario Mandzukic at his disposal, Kean may see his game time restricted, which could tempt him to find a new engagement.
