Everton should sanction the sale of Moise Kean to Paris Saint-Germain for £31million and use the money to sign a player who can cut it in England.
That is the view of former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of the 20-year-old joining the Ligue 1 giants permanently this month.
Kean joined PSG on loan in October having struggled to settle at Goodison Park following a £27million move from Juventus in August 2019.
Sky Sports claim Everton are now in negotiations over a deal which would see the forward move to the Parc des Princes permanently for a fee of £31million.
The Italy international has excelled in the French capital this season, scoring 11 goals in 20 appearances to date.
When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Kean’s future, Whelan said:
“I would expect him to score goals in France with a team that overshadows all of the others. He struggled in the Premier League because it is the best league in the world.
“Get him off your books. £31million? I’d bite your hands off.
“Recoup your money and get him out of the way because he cannot cut it in the Premier League. He can do it in weaker European countries with great players like Neymar but I guarantee you that I could score nine goals in 16 over there.
“Ancelotti would then have £31million in the bank to sign a player who can cut it in England.
“It is one of these deals you can only dream about. Where do I sign? Take him straight away.”
