Everton will be fortunate if £20m asking price for Cenk Tosun is met

Everton are reportedly keen on selling centre-forward Cenk Tosun in the January transfer window.

The Toffees signed the Turkey international for £27million (Sky Sports) back in January 2018, but it seems like he doesn’t feature in the plans of manager Marco Silva.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Everton have put a £20million price tag on the striker now and will offload him if their valuation is met.

It is understood that there has been some loan enquiries from Premier League teams for the 27-year-old, but the Merseyside club would rather sell on a permanent basis.

Everton massively overpaid for Tosun last year and they could end up taking just a £7million hit on him if they have it their way.

 

The striker has managed just two goals in 17 appearances across all competitions this season and clearly isn’t right for Silva.

He is a natural finisher that can be clinical in the penalty area when on form, but ultimately he’s not quite cut the grade during his year in English football and that should surely lower his price.

Tosun’s movement and positioning can let him down, while a lack of pace has not helped him at Goodison Park.

£20million would go a long way to help Everton invest in a different striker and it will be intriguing to see if any bids are received.
