A section on Everton fans on Twitter produced a mixed reaction to Moise Kean’s Champions League display for Paris Saint-Germain against Barcelona at Camp Nou last night.
Kean joined Les Parisiens on a one-season loan from the Toffees last summer after struggling to establish himself at the club with just four goals in 37 appearances.
He was initially considered a possible backup option behind players like Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Mauro Icardi, but clearly that has not been the case.
He has benefited from the injuries suffered by the trio at different stages of the season and has racked up 14 goals in just 25 appearances for the reigning French champions.
The 20-year-old forward made his best performance of the season against the Blaugrana with three shots on goal, including a header, which made it 3-1 for Les Parisiens (4-1 at full time).
His performance caught the attention of some Toffees fans. Although few were delighted with Kean, others suggested that the club have a chance to sell him for a good price this summer.
Reactions on Twitter:
Moise Kean looks even more like a player with enormous potential. Another goal from PSG
That’s 14 in 21 games #efc

It could be a bidding war for Moise Kean in the summer at this rate 💰

Not disrespecting our fantastic club, but after scoring 14 for 21, no matter what noise Carlo makes about Moise Kean, the lad will never come back from PSG. It just shows what the boy could do with real service and a series of starts. #efc

Very happy for Moise Kean.

One thing to note about everyone getting excited about Moise Kean’s fee, is a player who doesn’t want to return to the club, and a player that EFC will be willing to cash in on.
You could say that it is an advantage for buyers in any negotiation.

Kean has found his footing with Les Parisiens but will return to Goodison Park at the end of the season as they don’t have the option to buy.
The Toffees are still looking for a strong competitor for Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front, but Kean may prefer to return to Les Parisiens with a permanent deal.
In that case, the Merseyside team not only has a chance to win back the 29 million pound fee paid to Juventus in 2019, but they also demand a higher package based on their displays this season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team is in a strong position to negotiate this summer, as Kean’s contract does not expire until the summer of 2024.
