Highly rated Juventus wonderkid Moise Kean, who is a target for Arsenal and Manchester City, is reportedly evaluating offers from the Premier League.
Moise Kean is a name that has been echoing around the Juventus Stadium a lot in the last couple of years, and as the 16-year-old made his senior club debut to become the first player born in the new millennium to feature in one of the major European leagues, the echoes have only grown stronger.
The young forward has been courted by the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City. His brother Giovanni Kean has recently stated that Moise is happy to stay at Juventus for now, despite being linked to the likes of Lazio and Crotone on deadline day.
However he also sparked speculation by adding that the 16-year-old is fielding offers from the Premier League and is evaluating his next step.
“Lazio never tried. Juventus don’t want to lose the player and they want to focus on him. For Kean’s part, he’d like to play more but he feels the trust of the club and he’s good in Turin. Several clubs are following him, for the future we’re evaluating Premier League offers,” Kean’s brother said to Juve News, as per Football Italia.
While he has failed to register a goal or an assist in a total of 12 minutes of senior team action, Kean has been setting the youth leagues on fire. The 16-year-old has seven goals and four assists in eight matches for the Under-19s in the Primavera B, while he has also scored two goals in the UEFA Youth League.
Also the fact that the player’s agent is Mino Raiola, the person who brokered the Paul Pogba deal, further adds fuel to the speculation. But surprisingly, it is Raiola who said that he is going to stay at Juventus for the time being, while speaking to Sports Mediaset.
“ We know how Juve are and I would say he is going to stay there,” replied Raiola when asked about Kean’s immediate future, as translated by ESPN.
However, the admission of Kean’s brother means that the 16-year-old may well be on the move eventually. Kean is very highly rated at Juventus, but we may soon be seeing the young talent strut his stuff in the Premier League.
