Juventus have agreed a deal to sign Everton forward Moise Kean, according to reports.

Kean spent eight years as a Juve player before joining the Toffees in 2019, but the player failed to impress in Merseyside.

He spent last season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain where he made 45 appearances in all competitions, scoring 19 times.

After struggling to impress for Everton, a move back to Turin is on the cards.

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed the deal, saying Juventus will pay around €20million for the forward.

The player will have his medical on Sunday and has already agreed personal terms with his new club.

The Italian club have swiftly sorted a deal for Kean after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.

And Romano also claims Juve will not make a move for Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, despite reported interest.

Eden Hazard was also linked with a move to the Serie A outfit, but is equally as unlikely.

Elsewhere, Everton are reportedly interested in a loan move for Arsenal outcast Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Maitland-Niles joined the Gunners as a youngster in 2003 and he made his professional debut for them at the end of 2014.

He was 17-years-old at the time as he came on in the Champions League as Arsenal beat Galatasaray 4-1.

Interest in the 23-year-old is thought to be high after a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion last season.

The player emerged as first choice right-back at the Gunners under Mikel Arteta, but faded out of the Spaniard’s plans before his move to the Baggies.

He has often expressed his desire to play in midfield, which seems unlikely with Arsenal in the Premier League.

In June, Maitland-Niles told The Telegraph he wants to be given “clarity” regarding his future:

“If I was to get a phone call from someone at Arsenal and they said they’d like a meeting tomorrow, then it would be easier that way,” he said.

“They can tell me whether they’ve got plans to play me in the future or if they want to sell me.
