According to a recent report by Fanatik (translated by the Liverpool Echo), Besiktas are trying to orchestrate a move to bring Everton striker Cenk Tosun back to Turkey before the European transfer market shuts down on September 2nd. The same source has also revealed that the Turkish outfit are desperately trying to re-sign their former star, so much so, that Besiktas president Fikret Orman is willing to include himself in the negotiation process.
Tosun’s Underwhelming Spell With The Toffees
Tosun has fallen down the pecking order behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Everton’s new signing, Moise Kean and is currently Marco Silva’s third-choice striker at Goodison Park. He was a frustrated figure at the Merseyside club last season when he failed to establish himself in the Toffees first-team.
Since his move from Besiktas in the January transfer window of 2018, the 28-year-old has made a total of 43 appearances for Everton, scoring nine goals while grabbing three assists across all competitions. The Wetzlar-born talent has also represented Turkey in 38 international matches while registering 13 goals for his nation thus far.
He has failed to live up to the high expectations surrounding his arrival at Merseyside. Tosun is now in dire need of regular game time if he intends to resurrect his career in European football. Thus, a return to BJK Vodafone Park this summer makes sense for the Turkish striker as he could thrive with a change of scenery.
What Does The Turkish Frontman Offer On The Field?
Tosun is moderately paced and has enough strength to hold the ball up and get his teammates involved in the final third. He can be a lethal finisher inside the opposition penalty box when he is playing with confidence on the field. However, the Turkey international has struggled to find consistency with his performances last season.
Should The Toffees Cash In On Tosun This Summer?
Losing Tosun won’t affect Silva’s first-team plans for the 2019-20 Premier League campaign. The Turkish striker is currently on the fringes at Goodison Park, and the club would do well to get him off their wage bill. Furthermore, the Merseyside outfit would be wise to cash in on their prized asset and use the money generated from his sale to strengthen the Toffees squad when the transfer window reopens in January.
