Adebayor rates £20m Newcastle striker target as being best in the league

Basaksehir striker Emmanuel Adebayor believes that Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun is among the best strikers in the league.

Adebayor praised Tosun and described the striker as being one of the best three forwards alongside Bafetimbi Gomis and Jahovic.

The former Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City forward responded to a Q&A session on Twitter.

Tosun has attracted widespread interest from the Premier League with Tottenham and Newcastle according to the Sun.

Tosun has 10 goals in 15 games for the reigning Super Lig champions this season.

The 26-year-old has also netted four times and provided one assist in the Champions League.

Tosun scored the Champions League goal of the week on Match Day 1 in the 3-1 victory over Porto.

Only Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo have directly been involved in more Champions League goals this season (6).

Besiktas will book a place in the Last 16 as Group G leaders if they avoid defeat against Porto on Tuesday.

Adebayor has scored 12 goals and provided four assists in 31 appearances since joining Basaksehir last January.
