Kean, who joined the Blues from the Italian champions this summer, has had a slow start to the season, failing to score in any of his opening five games in an Everton shirt.

But Mourinho says: I am excited, I think he can score a goal. We are talking about issues, stability in performance, with that.

Is he able to do that, is he capable of doing that. Does he have the personality to do that? Is that the reason Juventus sold him or not? We don't know."

Mourinho has expressed his bewilderment at the Old Lady's willingness to sell the forward, who has three caps for Italy.

I am a little surprised," he said. Last season he showed, at least for us, from our perspective, watching from our side of the screen, he showed qualities as a player but also this no fear to come into a Juventus team full of stars and score goals.

Then, something that I put some question marks as to why Juventus sell, when they have strikers of top quality, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, like [Mario] Mandzukic, like [Gonzalo] Higuain, who are over 30 years old, they sell a striker that I recognised potential.

To sell him such a young striker, why? If I find [Pavel] Nedved (former Juventus player and vice-chairman) around the corner, I would ask him, why did you sell him? Then probably I would understand."

The young Swede has featured three times for the German second division side so far and spoke about how the move has come at the right time in his career.

He told the Brighton website, I've really enjoyed my time over here so far. It took a little while to get used to my new surroundings, but the players and staff have been really good to me.

I have that feeling of excitement at the moment, everything is new and it's a good challenge for me.

My aim is to get better, and hopefully I will play more often, because that's the main reason I came here, to play games of football.

I need some more game time to show what I can do on the pitch. I'll continue to do my best in training and hopefully my chance will come, because I'm more than ready."

Phillips has revealed that Klopp personally called Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat to help him secure a loan move to the German club this summer.

Phillips, 22, joined the Bundesliga 2 side on a season-long loan shortly after signing a long-term contract with the Reds.

The former Bolton Wanderers youngster has already made two league appearances for Stuttgart following the club's relegation from the German top flight last season.

I told Jurgen Klopp about a few offers I had, Stuttgart was not one of them at that time" Phillips told BILD.

Jurgen was not enthusiastic about the options and I think he called Sven Mislintat shortly after our meeting.

Klopp congratulated me on this move and he immediately wrote me a message on his phone: 'Good club, great city, my birthplace, I wish you a great time."

Rajkovic spent the past three years with Italian club Palermo but was released after they finished bottom of Serie B last summer.

A 16-year-old Rajkovic signed for Chelsea in 2005.

The centre-back, tipped to succeed John Terry in defence, had spent the previous summer at Arsenal's youth camp.

Andre Villas-Boas gave the Serbian centre-back his first start for Chelsea, in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Wycombe Wanderers in 2011.

That same year Rajkovic was sold to Hamburg in a 1.8m deal.

His career never really ignited, making just 42 appearances for the German side in four years.

PSV are in the market for a new attacking midfield signing and are turning to Jahanbakhsh after being blocked by Stuttgart in their bid for Nicolas Gonzalez.

Despite the player's lack of minutes at Brighton, PSV management believe he will be a different proposition in their shirt.

A PSV source told De Telegraaf: "Jahanbakhsh was a top player in the Eredivisie.

"He knows what is being asked of him and is above all a different type of attacker than the club has in house."

La Dernire Heure says Vitria Guimares have expressed interest in Halilovic.

Now 23, the midfielder has struggled since being signed as a teenager by Barcelona.

He has spent time with Sporting Gijn, Hamburg SV and UD Las Palmas in recent seasons.

The youngster scored for the club's under-23 side in a 3-2 win over Millwall.

Nketiah will be hoping that he can continue to impress and get a position in the Leeds first team.

Another who got a chance to impress was Jordi Osei-Tutu, who came on in the last 15 minutes for VFL Bochum against Hamburg.

The 20-year-old defender did not look out of place, but he could not help his side avoid a 1-0 defeat.

Phillips, the son of Bolton Wanderers hero Jimmy Phillips, is on a season-long loan with VfB.

"My relationship with Jrgen played a role in this transfer," VfB sports director Sven Mislintat told BILD. "We knew the player, of course.

"But Kloppo came up to me and we then discussed how this change could suit all sides.

"We were able to hire a very good centre-back, who was a long way from a place at Liverpool."
