More Italian sources continue to suggest Moise Kean could return to Juventus on loan from Everton, even without an option to buy.
The 20-year-old was purchased from Juve last summer for €27.5m plus bonuses, but failed to settle in under different managers.
He contributed two goals and two assists in 33 competitive games for the Toffees.
According to Tuttosport and Sportitalia, a return to Juventus on loan is increasingly likely, although it could be towards the end of the month.
