Cape Town - New Everton signing Moise Kean has revealed that the ambitious project presented to him by manager Marco Silva convinced him to join the club.
Kean has signed a five-year contract at Goodison Park after rejecting terms at Juventus.
The teenager is a genuine coup for the Toffees, who have taken their summer spending close to £85.5m this transfer window and will now target a centre-half or Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure.
“I am very proud and honoured to wear the Everton shirt. I will give my best to this team,” Kean told evertontv.
“I was convinced to sign because Everton is a club looking to the future and so am I. I know about the size of the club. It has big ambition and I will work very hard to help us fulfil what we want to achieve.
“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.”
Silva added: “A striker was one of our priority signings this summer.
“Moise is strong, fast, with many good qualities as a striker and he is just 19 years old. He has talent and he is ready to work, ready to improve our squad and gives us different solutions.
“Of course he was at a big club, now he’s come to another big club and is ready to fight for this challenge and to give everything to Everton Football Club.”
