Everton Transfer News: Club looking to sign £26m Toffees ace for free

Cenk Tosun could be on his way out of Everton in January if the latest reports from Turkey are to be believed.

Despite the 27-year-old stating that he isn’t interested in leaving Everton last week, the daily Turkish sports paper Fanatik claim that Besiktas have tabled an offer for Cenk Tosun.

Per the source, the Black Eagles are looking to sign Tosun until the end of the season on loan with an option to buy included.

Interestingly, Besiktas want to sign the experienced striker on loan for free.

Fanatik go onto state that Cenk is open to a move back to Istanbul following a difficult spell at Everton.

The Turkey international has scored just one goal for the Toffees this season. Everton boss Marco Silva has dropped Tosun from his starting eleven in recent weeks.

Tosun started for Turkey against Russia in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday but was unable to find the back of the net.

Everton are back in action this weekend when they take on Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.
