Whelan: Everton may be pricing Kean out of PSG move after new offer submitted
Noel Whelan has suggested Everton may be pricing Moise Kean out of a permanent move to PSG this summer.
The former Leeds striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the young striker must have impressed at the French giants if they are coming back in for him.
As reported by the Liverpool Echo (July 8th), Everton have turned down another loan offer from PSG for the 21-year-old.
It is said Rafael Benitez is not entertaining temporary offers for Kean and there are no talks over a permanent move.
Whelan insisted PSG would have the funds to buy him outright if they really wanted to.
However, he suggested Everton’s demands may be putting the French giants off.

“You don’t just go to PSG because that’s all you’ve got to go with,” Whelan told Football Insider’s Russell Edge.
“They obviously saw something in him. Can he emulate what he did, can he step up to the next level?
“If it’s not right then a loan deal could be the only thing they’ve got. If PSG are still coming back in for a loan deal, it means he’s done something right there.
“They’ve got the money to make it permanent. There’s no doubt about that. It’s just whatever Everton are asking for.”
Kean scored 17 times in 41 appearances for PSG last season.
He reportedly joined Everton for an initial £29million during Marco Silva’s time as manager.
The striker still has three years left on his contract at Goodison Park.
