Moise Kean has insisted he feels no pressure to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after the forward joined Manchester United from Juventus in the summer.
Kean returned to the Serie A squad which sold him to the Blues last month, two years after arriving at Goodison Park.
The 21-year-old failed to regain his displayed scoring form with Juventus in his youth and has only scored four times in 39 games for Everton.
Kean spent most of last season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain and had been linked with an exit from Everton for most of the summer.

And on the transfer deadline day, Juventus confirmed that they had granted Kean a two-year loan with an obligation to make the change permanent if certain parameters are met.
While on the same day United confirmed that they had re-signed Ronaldo to a two-year contract with the possibility of extending it for another year.
Ronaldo has scored 101 goals in just over three seasons for Juventus and averaged one goal every 105 minutes for the club.
But Kean insists he doesn’t feel any pressure to replace the forward and is only focused on printing Turin.
“I don’t feel any pressure to replace Ronaldo,” he told a press conference. “I just want to give a hand to the team where I grew up and where I had good times.
“I just want to play, I don’t have any pressure. I just feel the responsibility of wearing the Juventus shirt.
Before Kean continued his return to Turin: “I have always loved playing for this club. As soon as the opportunity presented itself there was no doubt in my mind and I made the right choice. Juventus has always had a place in my heart.
“I’m very lucky to have known different leagues like the Premier League and Ligue 1 at my age. I learned a lot and now I’m ready to give my all for this team.
