Juventus have triggered the £25million permanent transfer option for Moise Kean just days after the Everton ace was sent off after just 40 seconds in England.
The 20-year-old Italian forward joined the Toffees from the Serie A giants in 2019 for a fee of £25million, with the option of a permanent move at the end of the season.
And, despite his red card in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool, Juventus have decided to take up the option and make the move permanent.
Kean had a difficult first season at Goodison Park, scoring just four goals in all competitions, but he has shown signs of improvement this season, scoring seven goals in all competitions.
The Italian international has also been impressive in the Europa League, scoring four goals in six appearances, and his performances have been enough to convince Juventus to take up the option.
The move will come as a huge boost to Juventus, who have been struggling in Serie A this season and are currently in fourth place, nine points behind leaders Inter Milan.
Kean is expected to be a key player for the Bianconeri next season, and his return to Turin could be the spark that Juventus need to get back to winning ways.
The move could also be a huge boost for Kean, who will be looking to kick-start his career in Italy after a difficult spell in England.
The 20-year-old will be hoping to rediscover the form that saw him become one of the most sought-after young players in Europe, and he will be looking to make an immediate impact at Juventus.
Kean’s return to Juventus could also be a huge boost for the Italian national team, with the forward expected to be a key player for Roberto Mancini’s side in the upcoming European Championships.
The move is expected to be officially announced in the coming days, and it will be a huge boost for Juventus and Kean as they look to get back to winning ways.
