Moise Kean joins PSG on loan

The Everton striker has been brought in to strengthen PSG's attack where he will be Mauro Icardi's substitute. Last season he moved to Goodison for €27M.

Moise Kean joins PSG on loan

Just days after Leonardo and Tuchel's heated exchange for a lack of new signings, PSG have made a surprising addition to their squad - Moise Kean, Everton's 20-year-old striker, joins on loan for the rest of the season, L'Équipe confirm. In the end, Leonardo decided to bring in the Italian international rather than Eric Choupo-Moting, who looks set to join Bayern Munich.

Moise Kean's difficulties adapting at Everton

Everton signed Kean from Juventus for 27 million euros last year. But he struggled to adapt to the English game and ended up as a substitute in Carlo Ancelotti's plans. Leonardo expressly requested the young forward, who he knows from his time in Serie A.

PSG now have the forward they need to be able to give Mauro Icardi a rest during what is set to be  long season. The departures of Cavani and Choupo-Moting have left the Champions League finalists with just one centre-forward to get through a demanding fixtures calendar. Now, both Tuchel and Leonardo are looking to add a midfielder before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
