Ex-striker: Everton told to sanction £40m Kean exit after Romano update
Frank McAvennie insists it makes sense for Everton to sell Moise Kean this summer.
The former West Ham hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, reacted to the latest on the striker’s future.
As reported by reputable journalist Fabrizio Romano (July 1st), Kean wants to return to PSG and the clubs are in negotiations over a loan-to-buy deal.
Kean spent last season on loan at PSG and scored 17 goals in 41 outings.
The French side failed to win Ligue 1 and were knocked out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage.
The Italian’s loan came during his second year on Merseyside after he scored just four goals during his debut campaign.

McAvennie claims Rafael Benitez should sell Kean as the Blues can pick up a good price for a player who isn’t Premier League proven.
“Some players are made for different leagues,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Everton play different football to PSG, that’s for sure. He was playing with Kylian Mbappe and doing well.
“He clearly has confidence if he can walk into that dressing room after not getting a game for Everton.
“Sometimes things click, the dressing room, the atmosphere, whatever.
“It looks like it wasn’t good for him at Everton. If they can shift him for £40million, for a striker who can’t score.
“That makes a lot of sense.”
Kean has nine caps and two goals under his belt for Italy
He left Juventus to join Everton but could not recreate his previous impressive form in the Premier League.
