Moise Kean’s Everton career is all but over after Carlo Ancelotti discussed the possibility of selling him permanently to PSG, according to Darren Bent.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and England striker suggested the Italy international had found a “new incentive” in France after a difficult first season in the Premier League.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Ancelotti confirmed he would be open to talks with PSG over a permanent deal for the 20-year-old, if the striker wanted to stay at the Ligue 1 giants.
The former Juventus hitman has netted 11 times in 20 appearances during his temporary spell in France and has started all but one of the club’s league games since his arrival.
Having seen Kean struggle for game time and form at Everton, Bent believes Ancelotti has made his decision on whether to give the striker the opportunity to forge a career on Merseyside.
Asked if he thought Ancelotti would want to give Kean a second chance at Goodison Park, Bent told Football Insider: “No, I think sometimes some things fit and some things don’t fit and I think for Moise Kean, the fact that he’s at PSG now, I just don’t think it fits.
“I think it could have done but he didn’t really get an opportunity at Everton and he didn’t really go for it. He’s gone to PSG, sometimes you go to a different club, new atmosphere, new surroundings, you kind of find a new incentive.
“I think he’s done that and that is the reason why he is playing as well as he has.”
Ancelotti told Sky Sports: “He is having a really good experience at Paris Saint-Germain. If the player wants to come back we will be happy to have him, if the player wants to stay with Paris Saint-Germain, we have to talk with Paris Saint-Germain.
“Whatever the player likes, I don’t want a player back who is not happy to come [back]. If the player is happy to come, he is welcome back.”
