Italian forward Moise Kean is set to be fined by Everton after flouting lockdown rules by hosting a party. The 'Moise Kean lapdancer party' news made waves on social media on a day when the UK crossed 20,000 coronavirus deaths. Kean signed for Everton for Italian giants Juventus in the summer for a reported €27.5 million ($29.8 million) fee and is one of the many Premier League players to have broken lockdown rules.
Moise Kean was filmed enjoying himself at the gathering despite the government guidelines suggesting that people should stay indoors and not meet friends or family beyond those in their own household. Everton are likely to take strict action post-investigation and are set to fine him £100,000 ($124,500 approximately) accounting for two weeks wages. The Merseyside club released a statement saying the club are appalled by Moise Kean's actions and expressed their disappointment at a first-team player flouted with lockdown regulations.
