Moise Kean has signed for Everton from Juventus for an undisclosed fee, agreeing a five-year deal until the end of June 2024.
The 19-year-old Italy international striker – regarded as one of the brightest young talents in Europe – becomes the Blues’ fifth summer signing after midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin and keeper Jonas Lössl.
Kean says he is honoured to join Everton and wants to bring his winning attitude to a club that matches his ambition.
“I am very proud and honoured to wear the Everton shirt. I will give my best to this team,” Kean told evertontv.
“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.”
Kean made 13 appearances and scored six goals in Juventus’s Serie A winning campaign last season to fix his reputation as one of Europe’s most exciting young strikers.
The teenager made his league debut for the Turin club aged 16, replacing fellow forward Mario Mandzukic against Pescara in November 2016.
Kean inked his name in the record books when, making his full senior international debut against Finland in a European Championship qualifying match in March, aged 19 years and 23 days, he became the youngest player to score for Italy since 1958.
Everton manager Marco Silva said: “A striker was one of our priority signings this summer.
“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.
“Of course he was at a big club, now he’s come to another big club and is ready to fight for this challenge and to give everything to Everton Football Club.”
