I’m very happy at PSG – Kean drops hint over his long-term future
Moise Kean has suggested that he would be delighted to stay with Paris Saint-Germain when his loan spell with Everton is up.
The Italy international forward arrived at the Ligue 1 champions at the end of the summer transfer window on a temporary deal but with no purchase option.
The 20-year-old finds himself in excellent form, having scored seven goals in 12 matches. After struggling to find space at Goodison Park, he seems to be eyeing a prolonged stay in France.
“I’m very happy to be a Paris Saint-Germain player,” Kean told the media ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League meeting with Istanbul Basaksehir.
“I work hard to give 100% for the fans and for my team-mates.”

Kean added that he was happy to be working alongside world-class players.
“It’s a good thing to play with one of the biggest clubs in the work.
“I’m only concentrating on what I can do, to play good matches and to help my team win. For the future, we’ll look at that later.”
Kean impressed in the previous match against the Turkish side as he scored both goals in a 2-0 victory.
Meanwhile, he was on target again at the weekend as PSG secured a 3-1 win over Montpellier. That saw them retain a two-point advantage over Lille and Lyon at the summit of Ligue 1.
Kean was brought to the club as a back-up option to Mauro Icardi. However, the Argentine’s injury issues early in the season opened the door for him to play. Now, it will be complicated to move the former Juventus man from the starting XI.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have had a difficult start to the season and could find themselves overhauled by Marseille, who trail them by four points but have a couple of matches in hand.
