Out-of-favor Everton striker Moise Kean will spend the remainder of 2020/21 season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain after completing his temporary move on Sunday
Kean joined Everton from Juventus only last summer, but has failed to live up to the €27.5million the Toffees paid the Bianconeri to capture his signature.
Indeed, the highly-rated 20-year-old forward could only manage four goals in 37 appearances for Carlo Ancelotti’s side back in 2019/20.
With the arrival of James Rodriguez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin hitting a purple patch of form, Kean has tumbled down the pecking order at Goodison Park.
Since Ancelotti’s optic is to put his trust in free-scoring Calvert-Lewin, the talented Italian had to leave Merseyside for some regular first-team action.
It, however, remains to be seen whether a switch to the Parc des Princes can provide Kean with a much-needed game time.
Excited about linking up with the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the Italy international has expressed his delight for joining PSG.
“I am really proud and happy to become a Paris Saint-German player,” Kean told PSG’s club website.

Best of luck for the season, Moise! 🔵
“It is one of the best clubs in the world as shown by their Champions League campaign last season where they reached the final.
“I look forward to playing alongside some of the best players in the world.”
Kean will jump into Edison Cavani’s shoes in Paris, as the club’s best-ever goal-scorer left the French capital after running down his contract.
The experienced Uruguayan striker is now on the verge of joining Manchester United.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting also dropped into a free-agent pool after failing to cope with the likes of Neymar, Mbappe, and Mauro Icardi.
