As the January transfer window has opened, Everton youngster Moise Kean is a striker in demand and according to his agent Mino Raiola, the Toffees have no intention of selling him, despite him having a stack of offers on his desk.
Moise Kean insists he is going to be ready for any opportunity their new manager, Carlo Ancelotti gives him.
Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival as Marco Silva’s replacement at Everton has striker Moise Kean excited about the future. Moise Kean says he is ready to learn under new Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti after a slow start to his Premier League career.
The teenager made his move to Goodison Park from Juventus in the closing stages of the summer transfer window and has been restricted to appear from the bench for the most part as he continues to adapt to the English game.
He also suffered the indignity of being substituted 19 minutes after being sent on from the bench against Manchester United by caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson, who took over after Marco Silva’s sacking.
Despite a tough first few months at Everton, 19-year-old Kean is hoping to kickstart his development under his fellow Italian.
Talking to the official website of Everton, Kean said;
“[He is asking me] just to enjoy what I am doing and work hard and be professional. For him that is very important.
We speak about the team and where I can play.
“Getting the start [against Newcastle] was good.
“I am going to be ready for all the matches to show the coach why I am here.
“I have kept my head up and worked hard. When I come onto the pitch I try to do my best and be ready. Always.
“He is a very, very good coach, I can learn so much with him.”
The Toffees succumbed to their first defeat under their new boss, Carlo Ancelotti at the Etihad Stadium on New Year Day, with reigning Premier League Champions winning 2-1 thanks to a brace from Gabriel Jesus. After the game, Kean said;
“We played well against a good team [City] and tried to do our best, Manchester City played well and we take more experience from playing against a team like this. Day by day and match by match, we grow”.
Everton face arch-rivals, Liverpool, in a Merseyside derby that is the tie of the third round in the FA Cup.
