Everton Boss Marco Silva Expected To Use £27m Star As First Choice Striker

Turkey international star Cenk Tosun is expected to be deployed as first-choice Everton striker under the stewardship of Marco Silva next season according to the Echo.

The report claims that Tosun appears to be Silva’s first-choice striker but that Oumar Niasse is also part of his plans.

Silva will also have Dominic Calvert-Lewin once he recovers from his back injury.

The young forward has yet to play in the pre-season campaign this summer.

The Toffees are however, reported to still be on the lookout for a new attacker as they have scored just twice since their 22-0 victory over ATV Irdning.

The Premier League outfit are keen on bringing in a midfielder and attacker before the end of the transfer window but will have to hurry as they have until next Thursday to complete their summer business.

Tosun joined Everton from Besiktas on a £27m [BBC] move from Besiktas last January.

The 27-year-old scored five goals since completing his move under the stewardship of former manager Sam Allardyce.

Everton face Wolves on Saturday 11 August in their opening Premier League game of the season.
