Juventus starlet Moise Kean broke two records in the space of four days.
First the 16-year-old became the first player in Serie A history to be born in 2000 after coming off the bench against Pescara, before featuring in Juventus’ 1-3 win over
The youngster looks set for a bright future and is understandably being tracked by Premier League heavyweights, including Arsenal and Manchester City, while Juventus try to secure the long-term future of their latest wonderkid.
Reports in the ?Express claim the Turin club are desperate to tie the striker, who is already signed up with super agent Mino Raiola, down to new contract before other clubs start to circle.
Kean’s brother Giovanni has told ?Gazzetta dello Sport that Moise, who he compares to former City stars Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez, will sign a new contract with the Serie A giants.
However, his sibling’s assurances have not put off the Premier League duo, or PSG who have all reportedly sent scouts to watch the teenager this season.
Meanwhile Raiola, who also looks after Paul Pogba, has already been talking up his young client
“Kean is the name to watch in 2017, and I’m not just saying that because I’m his agent,” Raiola said earlier this month, in quotes published in the ?Express.
“He is only 16 years old, but has this determination within him that is just scary. He can become a big star at Juventus.”
Kean’s scoring ability has propelled through the youth levels in Italy. The forward scored an incredible 21 goals in just 10 games for Juventus’ Under 15s, before being fast-tracked to the first team.
Kean has represented Italy at youth level, scoring five in 12 for the U17 team, but could still switch allegiance to Ivory Coast, the country of his father, at senior level.
