Everton striker Cenk Tosun is considering an exit from the club, while the Toffees want to keep the forward in the squad despite having received offers for him already.
It has been reported in Turkey that as many as four clubs are interested in signing Tosun, and while Everton would like to keep him in January, the Turkish forward wants to go to a club where he plays more often.
Four clubs want Tosun, three offers made
Turkish outlet NTV Spor have reported that four clubs are in the running to sign the Turkish forward and this includes West Bromwich Albion, two German clubs and Besiktas. Having said that, there have been only three offers – Besiktas haven’t made one yet. The German clubs in question are believed to be Hertha Berlin and Schalke.
Can Everton let Tosun leave?
The report also goes on to claim that Everton want to keep him in Carlo Ancelotti’s current squad, but the 29-year-old could look for an exit considering that he wants to enhance his chances of playing for Turkey at Euro 2020.
Everton might be forced to keep Tosun
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been Everton’s first-choice striker in the current campaign and he has been in form as well. Apart from him, only Tosun is an out and out striker option for Everton considering the fact that Richarlison has been used regularly in a wide left role by Ancelotti.
Any potential injury or suspension for Calvert-Lewin could leave Everton light in the striker position, if Tosun does end up leaving. So at this point, it would be wise for the Toffees to keep Tosun unless they sign a replacement.
