Cape Town - Premier League side Everton are on the verge of sealing a deal for Juventus striker Moise Kean, according to reports in Italy.

The three-times capped Italy international is believed to be costing Everton a fee of €40 million (£36 million), with the deal said to be hinging on a buy-back clause that Juventus were keen to insert into the sale.

However, it's reported the two clubs have finally settled on a package that will take Kean, who enjoyed a breakout 2018/19 campaign, scoring seven goals in 17 games for Juve, to Goodison Park on what is a reported five-year deal.

It's reported the 19-year-old will earn €3 million per year at Everton and has already left the Continassa training camp in Turin to pack his bags to head to England for a medical.

The Toffees have made three first-team signings this summer, with Andre Gomes joining permanently from Barcelona.

Jonas Lossl and Fabian Delph have also arrived as Marco Silva looks to build a squad that can bridge the gap to the Premier League's top six.
