New Everton striker Moise Kean features across Monday’s local and national newspapers, with the Italy international detailing his excitement about the Club’s future.

The 19-year-old completed his move to the Club from Serie A champions Juventus on Sunday.

“Everton has big ambition and I will work very hard to help us fulfil what we want to achieve,” Kean said.

“I am used to winning and I want to bring this winning attitude to the team. I hope I will be very good on the field and bring the fans joy.”

The Liverpool Echo provides insight into another new Everton arrival. The local read carries quotes from German football expert Michael Ebert, who explained why he believes midfielder Jean Philippe-Gbamin boasts the qualities to shine in the Premier League.

“He has a strong body and is physical so he should suit that style of play,” Ebert said.

“He is known for his transitional play in that he takes the ball off an opponent and goes straight into the offence.”

French publication L’Equipe, meanwhile, reports Everton are eyeing a move for Monaco winger Rony Lopes. The 23-year-old Portugal international is rumoured to be valued at £25 million.

The Daily Star speculates Everton are interested in signing Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

The Frenchman enjoyed a successful loan spell at Goodison Park last term and the paper suggests the Blues are eager to sign him on a permanent basis.
