Kean to leave

Just days after Thomas Tuchel’s outburst regarding the club’s transfer policy, PSG appear to be reacting.

Sporting Director Leonardo publicly criticised Tuchel for his comments, but added that the club were indeed working on incomings.

With both Edinson Cavani and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting having departed, the French capital side needed offensive reinforcement.

And now, according to the latest reports from France, Everton’s Moise Kean looks set to join up with compatriot Marco Verratti.

.

Kean has seen his game time with the Toffees limited over the early weeks of the season, with attacking options Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and James Rodriguez having earned starting berths.

Meanwhile, Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi, Bernard and Yannick Bolasie are also available to Carlo Ancelotti.

However, minutes at PSG may still be difficult to come by. Kean would effectively be replacing Choupo-Moting as a backup option and late substitute. Kean was heavily linked with a return to Juventus, but that appears to have stalled.

If the young attacker does move to France, it seems a move which suits both clubs more than it does the player.

England’s starter?

With the international break just days away, Gareth Southgate opted to call up Dominic Calvert-Lewin, amid the forward’s blistering start to the campaign.

6 goals in his first 4 league appearances begs the question as to whether the 23-year-old should be starting for England over Harry Kane. The nation’s captain has scored just one goal so far this Premier League season, acting as more of a creator for Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side.

It is unlikely that Gareth Southgate would usurp his captain for Calvert-Lewin, but with games against Wales, Belgium and Denmark to come, England will need additional fire power.

The Belgians are favourites to top Nations League group B, having beaten England in the third-placed play-off in the inaugural competition.

Belgium are also the current world number one, as per the the latest FIFA rankings.

Whether Southgate opts for Kane or Calvert-Lewin, it is a good problem to have for the Three Lions boss.
