Pirisi exclusive: Everton striker Kean will return to Serie A - sooner rather than later

After a dream last season in 2018/2019, Moise Kean is struggling for the first time in his young career.

The Italian striker, born in 2000, has already shown himself to be one of the great talents in European football, but is failing to show his real qualities with Everton.

During the past season, Kean was able to score 7 goals with Juventus and 2 with the Italian national team, but with the Toffees shirt, even if Kean has already managed to play 11 games in total in Premier League for now, he has collected only one assist. He is still missing his first goal in the Premier League.

There are many voices that would like to see him on his way back to Serie A as early as January 2020, with Paulo Fonseca's Roma, who at the moment seem to be the team leading for his purchase, looking for a reliable sub for Edin Dzeko.

We talked about the future of Kean with Filippo Pirisi, local Italian football agent and sports law expert, exclusively for Tribalfootball.com.

First of all, Pirisi spoke about the causes behind his departure from Turin: "This unfortunately happens in the market dynamics, the boy wanted to play and Juventus could not guarantee him that, so sometimes it is necessary to make sacrifices, as in the case of (Patrick) Cutrone from Milan to the Wolves".

The comparison with Patrick Cutrone is very interesting, but the former striker of AC Milan has already managed to score with the Wolves shirt.

We can't forget that Juventus already had Mario Mandzukic, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain in that position. For Kean there were no other options than leave.

We asked Pirisi if in his opinion Kean would have done better to stay in Serie A, maybe in a club different from Juventus: "I think that for him it will be an important life and sport experience that will form him, even if I venture that, in my opinion, he will soon return to Serie A".

In any case, whether he will decide to stay in the Premier League or to return to Serie A, in a few weeks for Moise it will be time to make potentially decisive decisions for his career.

And who knows, a stylish comeback in Serie A could yet help the young striker snatch a call-up to Roberto Mancini's national team for the Euros.
