Everton have completed the signing of Moise Kean on a five-year deal.
“I am very proud and honoured to wear the Everton shirt. I will give my best to this team,” Kean told evertontv.
“I was convinced to sign because Everton is a club looking to the future and so am I. I know about the size of the Club. It has big ambition and I will work very hard to help us fulfil what we want to achieve.
“I am used to winning and I want to bring this winning attitude to the team. I hope I will be very good on the field and bring the fans joy.”
The transfer to bring in the 19-year-old from Juventus is believed to be worth around £27.5m, potentially rising to £30m.
Kean enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence last season, contributing 6 Serie A goals in 13 appearances to help Juventus to the Serie A title. The young striker was also handed his debut for the Italian national team in November 2018 –scoring two goals in three.
The latest star to emerge from the Turin club’s revered production line, Kean has long been earmarked to cement a starting berth in the Juventus first-team, but with significant stumbling blocks stifling his passage – notably Cristiano Ronaldo – Kean, declined the option to agree a new deal until 2024 in preference of first team football at Everton.
The deal is Everton’s fIfth signing of the summer having secured Andre Gomes from Barcelona, Jonas Lossl from Huddersfield, Fabian Delph from Manchester City and Jean-Philippe Gbamin from Mainz.
Everton manager Marco Silva said: “A striker was one of our priority signings this summer.
“Moise is strong, fast, with many good qualities as a striker and he is just 19 years old. He has talent and he is ready to work, ready to improve our squad and gives us different solutions.
“Of course he was at a big club, now he’s come to another big club and is ready to fight for this challenge and to give everything to Everton Football Club.”
