Everton in no rush to sign Gbamin and Kean replacements

Everton are in no rush to sign players who would replace Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Moise Kean, according to The Guardian, with manager Carlo Ancelotti still counting on them.

Gbamin, primarily a midfielder but capable of playing in any defensive role, arrived to Goodison Park from Mainz 05 in the summer of 2019 for a reported fee of €25 million, but injuries have affected his time with the Toffees severely. Having just returned from an Achilles tendon rupture, the 25-year-old played his only third game for the club, first this season, against Crystal Palace earlier this month and picked up a medial collateral ligament injury in training afterwards, which is now set to keep him out of action for the rest of the campaign.

Meanwhile, striker Kean is having a very good loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain, having helped the French club reach the Champions League semifinals this week. There are reports PSG are considering a move for the 21-year-old forward who would apparently cost them £45m, but there has been no concrete offer as of yet, and Ancelotti believes both Kean and Gbamin have a future on Merseyside.
