Tottenham & Everton will have to offer more than £20m to sign Cenk Tosun in January says club president

Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun has attracted interest from the Premier League over recent months.

The star forward has been in great form for club and country scoring a total of 13 goals across all competitions.

The Sun recently reported Everton as joining the likes of Newcastle United, Tottenham and Crystal Palace in the race to sign the 26-year-old.

The Black Eagles had valued Tosun as being worth £20 million but club president Fikret Orman now wants more.

The interested parties will have to offer more than £20 million if they want to prize the striker away in January.

“It’s difficult mid-season to think about selling Tosun to the Premier League,” he said. “It would need incredible numbers for us, £20m is not enough, I don’t need to sell now. I can wait until the end of the season,” Orman told Sky Sports.

The reigning Super Lig champions do not want to sell Tosun over the winter transfer window but are open to an end of season move.

Besiktas are currently just five points off league leaders Galatasaray and top of the Champions League Group G.

The Eagles are first in Group G on 10 points after four games.

Tosun has directly been involved in five goals in the European competitions – scoring four and providing one assist.

The Turkish international scored the goal of the week in the 3-1 win over Porto on Match Day 1.

The Germany born striker also scored the goal of the group stages last season in the 3-3 draw against Benfica last season.

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