Word stemming from the Italian media this weekend suggests that Juventus are pushing to secure a summer reunion with Moise Kean.
20-year-old striker Kean is a product of the Juventus youth system.
The Italian first began to make waves during the 2018/19 campaign, when, after being introduced to the first-team setup at the Allianz Stadium, he went on to find the net 6 times in just 13 Serie A appearances (5 starts).
Juve, however, desperate for funds, opted to make use of Kean’s burst onto the scene by moving their young attacker on last summer.
The 3-time capped Azzurri international made the move to Everton, for an initial €27.5 million.
As is common knowledge amongst fans of the Premier League, though, Kean has not exactly gone on to set the world alight over the 12 months since.
Despite showcasing his unquestionable potential in patches, the starlet, as a whole, has struggled to settle in England.

All told, Kean managed a paltry 2 goals and 2 assists across 29 Premier League appearances in 2019/20.
As such, rumours doing the rounds in the media this summer, hinting that Kean could be set for a swift return to his home country, have come as little surprise.
And, as outlined above, the last 24 hours have seen one club in particular hotly tipped to swoop for the 20-year-old.
The outfit in question? Juventus.
Multiple reports in the Italian media this morning suggest that Kean is inching towards a return to Turin.
As cited by Football-Italia, La Repubblica point towards a potential two-year loan, after which Juventus would be obligated to make their youth product’s arrival permanent.
The Gazzetta dello Sport, on the other hand, claim that a swap deal could be on the cards, whereby Kean reunites with the Italian champions, with Aaron Ramsey heading in the opposite direction.
One potential stumbling block in such a move, however, would be Ramsey’s hefty wage packet.
