‘Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison’ – Moise Kean speaks out on time at Everton

Moise Kean has shared his thoughts on his experience at Everton and how he found it challenging to play second fiddle to both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, writes the LiverpoolEcho.

The Italian international completed a two-year loan deal to Juventus for €7m (£6.2m) in the summer of 2021, with an obligation for the Italian side to make the deal permanent if certain sporting targets were achieved by the end of the 2022/23 season. As confirmed by the ECHO earlier in March, the requirements have been met and the Serie A giants have officially approved the forward’s permanent transfer back to Italy.

After spending a season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, Kean joined Juventus in a two-year loan deal worth €7m (£6.2m) in the summer of 2021. Kean’s move to Juventus was followed by his arrival at Goodison Park, which was considered a major signing. However, Kean struggled both on and off the pitch during his time in England, managing to score only four goals in 39 games. In contrast, during his time in France, Kean was in great form, scoring 17 goals in 41 matches.

Kean told Corriere dello Sport when reflecting on his time at Everton: “At Everton, there was [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin, who was breathing goals that year, and Richarlison. There was very little space. The Premier League is the most beautiful league in the world, the most difficult. I was 19, I have little to blame myself for.”
