Everton might have just made one of the most exciting deals of the transfer window.
In snapping up Moise Kean from Juventus for £25m they have signed one of Italy’s most exciting talents and transformed their strikeforce.
Here is everything you need to know about the 19-year-old striker for this year’s Dream Team.
I think we can all agree that Cenk Tosun just won’t cut it as the starting striker for any club with top-8 ambitions.
Thankfully Everton have spent £25m on one of the brightest young strikers in Europe in the shape of 19-year-old Kean.
Kean may not have hit the heights of Kylian Mbappe just yet but he was the first player born in the 2000s to play and score in one of Europe’s top five leagues, and for Juventus no less.
He was nominated for 2018 Golden Boy award and it looks like Everton have played a masterstroke in the transfer market, getting a starlet with huge potential in for less than £30m.
So what does that mean for you Dream Team gaffers out there?
Let’s start with the important bits; Kean costs just £3m on Dream Team – a bargain price for a guaranteed starter at a club pushing towards the top six.
If you’ve gone big with a couple of Harry Kane, Mo Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Sergio Aguero (as is a must) then pairing any two with Kean in your attack could lead to big rewards on the points side and will leave plenty of spare cash for investment elsewhere in your squad.
Kean scored a decent eight goals in 21 appearances for Juve last season and his key attributes of power, pace and aerial threat should make him perfectly suited for Premier League action.
If he was trusted to lead the line when a certain Cristiano Ronaldo was injured last season, he should have no problem replacing Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin for Everton this year.
