Report: PSV to move for Moise Kean on loan

The move could be dependent other moves, though.

Moise Kean has been a hot topic for Juventus fans all over. There has been much speculation over his current ability, potential ability, and what Juventus’ plans for him in the upcoming year should be. Funny thing is, we’ve certainly talked about him for longer than the 23 minutes he’s played in competitive matches for Juventus so far.

But that’s what happens when you have a young gem on your hands. If they’re not handled properly then development goes south, or they leave for better treatment elsewhere (see: Coman, Kingsley). One option would be for the youngster to deputize the attackers, as he can probably slot into two or three of the attacking positions that will likely be rolled out this year. Another option would be to loan him to a team that doesn’t have the expectation to win every competition they compete in, and could find more of a prominent use for a 17-year old winger.

If Juventus go with the second option, the option to loan Moise Kean to PSV would be there, according to reports from Gianluca DiMarzio. The move is apparently dependent on whether Juventus land Keita Balde (or another winger) or not. One more addition to the attack would surely leave very limited minutes for Kean.

PSV are no slouch either. They finished in 3rd place in the Dutch league last year, and are consistently among the top 2 or 3 performers in the league. Kean would still benefit from a club with a winning mentality, making an easier mental transition from a mid-low table team from another league.

I think that if Kean is able to get significant minutes from a team like PSV then for a 17-year old you really can’t ask for much better for his development. With the upgraded depth at the winger position this year, it’s a move Juventus can afford to make.
