Everton Ace Eager To Seal A January Move Away From Merseyside: Should Silva Let Him Go?

According to a recent report by the Turkish news outlet Hurriyet, Everton outcast Cenk Tosun is keen on making a switch away from Goodison Park if his current situation does not change before the transfer window reopens in January. The same source has claimed that the Toffees striker is frustrated due to a lack of game time at Merseyside this season and wants to go back to his homeland in search of greener pastures.

Tosun’s Lacklustre Spell In English Football

The 28-year-old has fallen down the Goodison Park pecking order and is currently behind the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Moise Kean at the Merseyside club. The ex-Besiktas striker is in dire need of regular game time in the coming years so that he can rekindle his career in European football.

Since making a switch to England at the start of last year, the Turkish frontman has gone on to feature in 44 matches for the Toffees, netting nine goals while creating four assists on all fronts.  The Wetzlar-born centre-forward has struggled to score goals consistently in the Premier League. He could benefit from parting ways with Everton during the winter transfer period.

The former Super Liga talent had a fabulous goalscoring record in the Turkish top-flight after he registered 80 goals and created 31 assists in 205 appearances back in his homeland. Tosun has also represented Turkey in 40 international fixtures and has scored on 15 occasions for his nation so far.

What Are The Turkish Striker’s Best Attributes?

Tosun can be a fox inside the opposition box as he is a lethal finisher when he is firing on all cylinders in the final third. However, the 28-year-old has failed to find consistency wearing an Everton shirt, so it is no surprise to see him lose his place in Marco Silva’s match-day squad this season. Despite his recent goal-scoring woes, the Turkey international can still run the channels and be an effective outlet for his team in the opposition half. 

Should The Toffees Let Him Go In January?

Silva has shown no indication of handing Tosun any game time even though Everton face a busy schedule in the coming weeks as they look to compete across multiple competitions this term. It doesn’t seem likely that the Turkish forward’s current situation will improve unless he can show some significant signs of improvement on the training ground.

For now, the best move for both parties would be to part ways and move on when the transfer window reopens in January.
