Paris Saint-Germain led Barcelona to the clean-up at Camp Nou last night, coming back to secure a 4-1 win in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
Kylian Mbappé had a hat-trick, and Everton loan officer Moise Kean scored the other goal.
The 20-year-old joined PSG on loan for the entire season last summer and has since recorded 14 goals in all competitions.
Everton fans were impressed with his performance against Barcelona last night, and coach Carlo Ancelotti and football director Marcel Brands would have been pleased as well.
Kean’s loan deal at PSG does not include a call option, and the player’s market value has surely risen given his recent performances.
It remains to be seen whether the French giants will seek to secure their services permanently, but the Everton forward will definitely not be available cheaply.
“I am 100% sure that Everton will fight for Kean, or they will receive 60 or 70 million euros or they will keep the player.” said the Italian on the podcast Here We Go.
“Ancelotti is a huge fan of Moise Kean. In my opinion, they are planning him as the star of the next season.”
While Kean struggled at Everton last season, scoring just two goals in 29 Premier League appearances, the former Juventus striker is proving his quality once again in the French top flight.
The Toffees will likely be itching to get him back, but it remains to be seen if the player and his agent want that.
With Dominic Calvert-Lewin still the undisputed starter at Goodison Park, Kean’s playing possibilities at Everton will always be limited for the time being, and that won’t be too attractive for the Italian international.
The lack of European football next season after having again tasted Champions League action could also lead him to seek a permanent exit from Ancelotti’s side, and it will be interesting to see how things go in the summer.
In other news, Everton are planning a summer transfer for an international star from France.
