PSG hero Rabesandratana hopes they can keep Everton striker Kean: But not at any price

Paris Saint Germain hero Eric Rabesandratana admits he'd like to see Moise Kean stay.

The Everton striker is on a straight loan this season with Paris Saint Germain and been outstanding so far this campaign. Kean was again on the scoresheet last week in their famous Champions League win at Barcelona.

For Rabesandratana, Paris Saint Germain should try to negotiate a permanent deal for Kean - though not at any cost. So far this season, the 20 year-old Italy international has made 30 appearances for the Parisians, scoring an impressive 16 goals and producing one assist. Kean has a contract with Everton to 2024.

Rabesandratana told France Bleu via Le 10 Sport: "I really like Moise Kean, he's a great player.

"He's a real good find for Leonardo. But it will not be easy to keep him because his price would have been set at €80m by Everton ... it's nonsense!

"I like Moise Kean a lot, but €80m should not be exaggerated. Especially since his market value is estimated at €30m. It will not be easy to make a transfer but I hope we will take the step for him."

Kean left Juventus over 18 months ago to sign for Everton before joining Paris Saint Germain in the summer.

Former defensive midfielder Rabesandratana spent four years with Paris Saint Germain, captaining the club during his time with the French giants. In 1997, he helped Paris Saint Germain win the Cup, League Cup and Supercup.
