Toffees’ director of football Marcel Brands is good friends with his Juventus counterpart Fabio Paratici, and is hoping the relationship between them can help Everton get a deal over the line.
The Serie A giants aren’t keen on letting go of the 19-year-old permanently given his huge potential and talents, and are preparing to hand him a new improved deal.
However, they are open to a temporary exit as long as he can be guaranteed regular playing minutes, and Blues’ manager Marco Silva can offer him that at Goodison Park.
Kean netted seven goals in 14 appearances for the Old Lady last season, and can be the quality and consistent finisher Everton desperately need as they look to break into the top-seven next season.
Snapping him up on loan and with no cost is also a safe bet as they can always decide to send him back if he doesn’t deliver.
He could also be willing to make a loan move permanent if he is keen on the club’s long-term project like Andre Gomes was last term.
