Kevin Phillips has tipped Everton to sell Moise Kean this summer after the player was spotted flouting guidelines like Tottenham star Tanguy Ndombele.
The former Sunderland and Aston Villa striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, suggested Marcel Brands will now look to sell the 20-year-old and reinvest the money raised on a replacement.
The club were “appalled” by the incident in which their forward was videoed partying at his Cheshire home in spite of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Toffees are set to hand the summer signing a £100,000 fine as a consequence of his actions.
It is the second time Kean has been disciplined by the club since his £27million summer move after he was dropped from the squad at Southampton having arrived late for a team meeting.
When asked by Football Insider if the latest disciplinary issue would be the final straw for the club, Phillips said: “I think this raises doubts over his future.
“It is a bit like Ndombele, he has struggled since arriving.
“The lad is not helping himself. That is a couple of times now he has had off-field incidents.
“I would imagine they will want to get him off the wage bill. I think they will look to recoup as much money as they can for him and put it towards future signings.
“His future at Everton is really hanging in the balance at the moment.”
Kean is the third Premier League player found in breach of the UK lockdown for such a reason.
