£27m Everton Star Sets Record Straight Following Goodison Park Exit Rumours

Everton striker Cenk Tosun has been linked with a return to Besiktas after a slow start to the season.

MyNet reported that Besiktas are keen on loaning Tosun in January.

A source close to the player has revealed to Turkish-Football that the latest rumours are nonsense and that he is fully committed to the Toffees.

Tosun has no intention of leaving Everton and has not held talks with his former club over a potential transfer in January.

Besiktas have made no secret that they are in pursuit of a striker over the winter transfer window after partying ways with Alvaro Negredo.

The Istanbul giants are lacking options and depth in the striker department but Turkish-Football understands that the club have not contacted Tosun over a move back.

Tosun has one goals and two assists for Everton this season but has started the last three league games on the bench.

The 27-year-old still appears to be part of head coach Marco Silva’s plans despite not starting recently.

Tosun has been called up to the Turkey national team squad and is likely to start both games in the friendly against Bosnia and the UEFA Nations League away clash versus Russia.
