West Ham should consider making a move for Everton striker Moise Kean.

The 20-year-old joined the Toffees from Juventus in the summer of 2019 for around £25 million (BBC).

Kean has struggled to establish himself at Goodison Park, however. The five-capped Italy international has scored just four goals in 37 games for Everton (Transfermarkt).

That isn’t to say that the former Juve ace isn’t an exceptional talent, however.

The explosive, powerful Italian could thrive at West Ham in a 4-4-2 system playing alongside Sebastien Haller.

He proved during his time with Juventus just how dangerous he can be. Kean scored eight goals in 21 games for the Turin giants whilst he was still a teenager (Transfermarkt).

Kean has blistering pace and is incredibly strong for someone so young. With his ability to make penetrating runs in behind opposing defenders, he could be the tailor made partner for Haller.

 

The West Ham fans have always loved a talented, maverick-type player. You need look no further than Paolo Di Canio and Dimitri Payet.

Moise Kean has the ability to emulate those two players. At 20, he is still very raw. But his talent is undeniable.

Now, Everton may not be ready to give up on the former Juve man and sell him to another Premier League club.

Carlo Ancelotti has already spent heavily this summer, however. And perhaps the Italian may be prepared to sell his countryman, if a decent offer is made this summer.

West Ham have limited funds of course. And we should be prioritising strengthening our defence. Our need for another centre-forward should not be underestimated, however.

And if we manage to make one more big sale – perhaps Felipe Anderson or Manuel Lanzini, there is no reason why we shouldn’t target a move to bring Moise Kean to the London Stadium.
