Everton Set To Complete £27m Transfer After Striking 4.5 Year Deal Worth £6.5m Per Season
Everton are set to complete the transfer of Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun at 17:00 GMT a source close to the player revealed to Turkish-Football.
Tosun is expected to sign a four-and-a-half year deal worth £6.5 million per-season.
The Telegraph reported that the transfer fee is expected to be £27 million which would make Tosun the most expensive player to leave the Super Lig.
The 26-year-old has seen a meteoric rise over the past three seasons.
The Turkey international joined Besiktas on a free transfer from Gaziantepspor three years ago, going on to lift back-to-back titles over the past two league campaigns.
Tosun became the highest scoring Besiktas player in the Champions League for the Black Eagles during his time at the club.
The Germany born striker was involved in seven goals in 12 games in the competition – five goals and two assists.
UEFA awarded Tosun the goal of the group stage award for two seasons running – for his volley against Benfica last term and his long-range finish versus Porto this time around.
The strıker ıs expected to make his debut against Tottenham on January 15 in the Premier League at Wembley stadium.
