Everton Will Green Light Cenk Tosun Exit If They Sign Liverpool Forward In January But Champions League Side Could Derail Plan

Everton striker Cenk Tosun continues to be linked with a Goodison Park exit in the Turkish media.

The Hurriyet newspaper are reporting that the Toffees will give either Tosun or Oumar Niasse the green light to leave Goodison Park in January if they manage to sign Liverpool forward Divock Origi.

Per the source, the Toffees are plotting a move for the Belgium international and are prepared to part ways with Tosun if they get their way.

Besiktas are keen on loaning the Turkey international for six-months in January.

It is no secret that the Black Eagles want to sign a striker over the winter transfer window.

The Istanbul giants lack depth up front after parting ways with Alvaro Negredo this summer without finding a replacement.

Tosun has however, informed Turkish-Football that he has no intention of leaving and that as far as he is concerned Everton are also happy with him.

Additionally, Galatasaray could derail the Toffees reported plans to sign Origi.

We reported earlier in the week that the Lions are plotting a move to loan the 23-year-old in January.

The Istanbul giants would be able to offer Champions League football if they make it to the next round.

Origi would likely be given a first-team role as the Lions are in desperate need of reinforcements up front.

The reigning Super Lig champions failed to replace Bafetimbi Gomis over the summer.

The French striker was involved in 38 goals last season – 32 goals, six assists.

Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim has been forced to play winger Sinan Gumus as a makeshift striker following injury to Eren Derdiyok.

Terim had to put two defensive players, Ryan Donk and Maicon upfront in the Lions 1-0 victory over Antalyaspor before the international break.
