Kean reiterates commitment to Everton


Everton striker Moise Kean has vowed to fight for his future at the club amid ongoing speculation he could return to Serie A.

Kean was tipped as the man to solve Everton’s long-standing issues in the centre-forward role over the summer after completing a 30million euros switch from Juventus.

However, he has struggled to settle and is yet to find the back of the net in 11 appearances across all competitions.

Marco Silva was hoping the 19-year-old would hit the ground running as the Blues attempt to challenge for a top-six place this season.

But he has hit the headlines for the wrong reasons since joining Everton, having been dropped from the matchday squad against Southampton after turning up late for a team meeting.

Everton fans will be hoping Kean’s exploits over the international break will boost his confidence levels back in the Premier League.

He scored a brace for Italy’s Under-21s in a 6-0 win over Armenia on Tuesday and is expected to be restored to the 23-man squad for Saturday’s home Premier League meeting with Norwich.

The striker’s form has already led to suggestions that he could be on his way out, potentially on loan, in January.

Reports claim AC Milan, Roma and Sampdoria are keen on doing a deal with the Merseyside outfit.

His father, Jean, recently suggested that making the move to England was a “mistake” but the teenager has hit back and has vowed to work even harder.

Kean insists he isn’t considering an exit from Everton and believes he can play a big role once he adapts to life in the Premier League.

Kean told Corriere dello Sport: “I’m not thinking about the transfer window now, others are doing that. I’m looking at the present, I want to train and play.

“The Premier League is a very different league to Serie A. You need time to adapt. If I have to think about an immediate goal, it’s only to earn a starting spot at Everton and work towards that.”
