Everton coach Rafa Benitez admits Moise Kean’s future is still uncertain amid talks of a possible return to PSG.

The Italian forward spent the last season on loan in Paris, scoring 17 goals in 41 appearances with the Ligue 1 giants.

He returned to his former club in the summer as PSG did not have an option to make his transfer permanent. However, they are still interested in welcoming the player back to the club for the 2021-22 campaign.

Kean scored the winner in their 1-0 win over Pumas in the Florida Cup yesterday and the Toffees coach Rafa Benitez provided an update about the striker of the former Juventus man.

“I think it’s important for a striker to score, so good news for him and for us. It’s an early stage in the pre-season, so we have to keep working and see what happens,” Benitez said.

“The problem of the transfer window is that it ends at the end of August, so we’ll have to play games and make decisions on players. It’s important for them to understand that they have to carry on and for him to score goals is the best way to make his point.”

Kean completed a €30m from Juventus in 2019 but managed just four goals in 37 appearances with the Toffees.

Roberto Mancini included him in a preliminary Italy squad ahead of the Euros, but the 21-year-old was snubbed from the final 26-man squad list that went on to win the competition this summer.

Kean’s contract at Everton expires in June 2024.
