FULHAM have approached Juventus over a deal to sign Everton FLOP Moise Kean as they look to replace Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to reports.
The Evening Standard report that contact was made on Monday to discuss a fee for Kean after Mitrovic joined Al-Hilal for a club record £43million fee last weekend.
Kean was once seen as the future of the Italian national team after making his debut for the Azzuri in 2018, aged just 18.
But his career stalled after moving to Everton the following year in an initial £29m deal.
Kean struggled to adjust to the Premier League, and scored just two league goals in 30 appearances for the Toffees – he also added just two in cup competitions.
After a loan spell to PSG in the 2020/21 season the forward returned to Juve for £25million.

Fulham boss Silva sends Mitrovic off with brutal dig as club identify replacement
He has largely been used from the bench for the Bianconeri since returning in 2021, and may look to move to Fulham to gain regular minutes and have another crack at making it in the Premier League.
The Cottagers are also considering a move for Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun, who is believed to have a price tag of £50million.
The 22-year-old American striker had an excellent season last year on loan at Ligue 1 side Reims, scoring 21 goals and making three assists.
Despite his scintillating form, he finds himself behind Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah in the pecking order and wants a move to play first-team football.

The Cottagers have now cooled their interest in Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi after failing to agree a fee with the Blues.
Marco Silva considers Demarai Gray an alternative to the winger, but would face competition from Saudi clubs for his signature.
Fulham had already brought in Wolves's Raul Jimenez earlier this summer, but that was to play as a back-up for their former talisman Mitrovic.
The club would like to bring in a marquee number nine to replace the Serbian striker.
