Everton have signed Italy international forward Moise Kean from Juventus, the Premier League club have confirmed earlier today.

In what can be seen as a bargain for the youngster, Everton confirmed the deal to sign Kean worth an initial €32 million (£29m/$35m), though the forward could end up costing €40m (£37m) with add-ons.

The 19-year-old who has been capped three times by his country, scored six goals in 13 Serie A appearances last term.

“I am very proud and honoured to wear the Everton shirt. I will give my best to this team,” said Kean.

“I was convinced to sign because Everton is a club looking to the future and so am I. I know about the size of the Club. It has big ambition and I will work very hard to help us fulfil what we want to achieve.

“I am used to winning and I want to bring this winning attitude to the team. I hope I will be very good on the field and bring the fans joy.”

“A striker was one of our priority signings this summer,” said Everton’s manager, Marco Silva. “Moise is strong, fast, with many good qualities as a striker and he is just 19 years old. He has talent and he is ready to work, ready to improve our squad and gives us different solutions.”
