Moise Kean Is Attracting Interest From Premier League Club In Potential €30m Deal

Moise Kean Is Attracting Interest From Premier League Club In Potential €30m Deal

Moise Kean became the first player born in 2000 to feature in Serie A when he came on in the 84th minute against Pescara in 2016.

The 19-year-old has since impressed on a number of occasions for Juventus and as a result, the Italian is attracting interest from a Premier League club this summer.

Kean's agent, Mino Raiola, has reportedly told Juventus that Everton are 'ready to relaunch their offer of €30m' for the talented striker, according to Calciomercato.

Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport also claim that Marco Silva's side are interested in the player, alongside Champions League semi-finalists Ajax, who are also keen on his signature ahead of the new season.

After a loan spell at Hellas Verona in the 2017/18 season, he proved his worth for Juve this season, scoring six goals in seven appearances.

He also helped his side clinch an eighth consecutive Scudetto.

It has been a difficult journey to the top for Kean, however.

The youngster revealed that would 'beg, borrow, steal and save all week' just to play football with his mates around the back of a church back in the day.

Kean would even steal a ball from the local priest so that he compete in a 6-a-side game where there was €60 euros up for grabs:

"Once I was so desperate to play football that I stole a ball from a priest," he told The Players' Tribune.

"I grew up in Asti, near Turin, Italy. And if you wanted to play in our neighbourhood, you could always find a football in the priest's office at the oratory near our house.

"The priest was a nice man who kept all the balls in a drawer. But, you see, here's the thing: He never locked it.

"So every time I lost my own ball - maybe because I had kicked it over a fence - I would sneak over to the oratory, wait for the priest to go upstairs, and then take a ball from his drawer.

"When you grow up in Asti, you need a football at all times. Need it. I used to play football on an asphalt pitch behind the church. Six-vs-six.

"Each player had to pay 10 euros, I would beg, borrow, steal and save all week so I could afford my fee."
