‘We See Everton FC As A Brother From Now On’ – Toffees Win Over New Fans In Turkey Following Cenk Tosun Transfer
Sam Allardyce revealed that Everton have reached a deal with Besiktas over the transfer of Cenk Tosun yesterday.
Allardyce also stated that Tosun could make the squad for the FA Cup clash against Liverpool.
“We’ve agreed a deal and are at the stage of personal terms. Hopefully, we might be able to get him registered in time to play in the cup,” Allardyce told reporters.
Tosun leaves Besiktas as a hero among the fans.
The 26-year-old played an important role in his side winning back to back league titles.
Tosun was also the star of the show in the Champions League directly contributing to six of the Black Eagles 11 goals.
Besiktas cruised past the group stage, the first Turkish side to finish the round as leaders.
The Turkey international was awarded goal of the group stage for the second season running following his strike in the 3-1 away win over Porto.
Everton appear to have made themselves a few million new fans following the signing of Tosun.
We took a look at the reaction of Besiktas fans to the transfer on social media.
Take good care of him, from now on, we‘re Everton fans aswell!

Hear this argument being made quite a lot. Firstly it is worth pointing out that Cenk was focused on Champions League football this season and was rested at times in the league for Negredo – his backup – as a result.
Secondly Cenk scored four goals and provided two assists in the Champions League. In fact he has been involved in seven goals in his last 12 games in the competition. Actually he has picked up goal of the group stage award for two seasons running.
Hearing nothing but great things from Besiktas fans about Cenk Tosun is great, until you realise that a certain Arouna Koné has the same amount of goals, in the same league, this season
