Transfer News: Arsenal make contact with Juventus for Moise Kean

Arsenal
have joined the race to sign Juventus
forward Moise Kean and have made contact with his agent Mino Raiola. 
The last player to make a big move from Turin to the Gunners was Thierry Henry and Emery will be hoping Kean can make as big an impact if the Premier League side can get a deal over the line.
The Italian giants are set to renew the 19-year-old's contract - tying him down until 2024 - before looking to sell him abroad. 
Sporting director Fabio Paratici recently insisted that the player can be sold once his new deal is signed, however, there must be a buy-back clause included in any negotiation.
It is believed that Juventus would be willing to do business at €35million (£31.5m) and then would include a buy-back fee of €40m (£36m) that would come into force in two years.
Arsenal have no intention of including such a clause in a deal though and would be willing to raise their offer to €40m (£36m) now in order to have it removed. 
Everton
are also keen on signing the Juventus
forward and view him as a long-awaited replacement for Romelu Lukaku
. The Toffees, unlike Arsenal, would be happy to keep the buy-back clause in the contract.
Raiola, Kean's agent, has already informed Juventus of the growing interest in his client and the club are happy for him to start negotiating an exit.
Kean has netted eight goals in 21 appearances for Juve and is regarded as one of the hottest young prospects in Europe.
