Everton are in talks about a return to Juventus for striker Moise Kean.

It is not yet clear whether the deal for the Italy international will be a loan with an obligation to buy.

The 21-year-old still has three years left on a five-year deal with Everton, having left Juventus in 2019 for an initial fee of £25.1m.

He has played twice this season under new boss Rafael Benitez but was sent off in the EFL Cup win over Huddersfield last Tuesday.

After a mixed first season at Everton, in which he scored two goals in 33 appearances, he then spent last term on loan at Paris St-Germain, scoring 16 goals in 36 appearances.

Juventus will be short of a forward, and have additional funds, once Cristiano Ronaldo completes his return to Manchester United.
