Everton fans have been reacting to the news that Cenk Tosun has entered into talks with Besiktas concerning a return to Turkey.
Tosun’s spell at Goodison Park has not gone too well. In 2018, the Toffees paid £27m to take him to Merseyside (Sky Sports), but he failed to justify that lofty transfer fee. In 58 outings he has managed just 11 goals (Transfermarkt), with injuries thwarting him throughout his time in England.
Now, though, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel for all involved. As per Fotospor (via Sport Witness), Everton are in talks with Besiktas in a deal that would see Tosun return to his homeland, with the rumours emerging on the same day his agent insisted the striker is ‘happy‘ on Merseyside.
The Super Lig outfit would also be a good fit for the £4.5m-valued 30-year-old – he has managed 67 goals in 146 games for the Turkish side and it is from them that Everton signed him in the first place.
