Is Kean keen though?

Juventus could try to make the most of the Mauro Icardi situation by offering Moise Kean and €20m in exchange for the Inter outcast. FCInterNews.it claim that the Bianconeri will propose teenage Italy international Kean as part of the deal. This has multiple reasons behind it, as Kean has still not worked out a new contract with Juventus and his current deal is due to expire in June 2020. If Gonzalo Higuain continues to reject all destinations, then Kean may well be forced out instead to make room for Icardi. In addition, former Juventus director of sport Beppe Marotta is a big admirer of Kean and would relish the chance to reunite with him at San Siro. Inter would demand Kean plus a cash sum, probably in the region of €20m.
