Everton striker Cenk Tosun watched his former club Besiktas play Alanyaspor on Monday night, according to Sport Witness.
The Turkish international was Sam Allardyce’s big striking gamble but he has not come good, and found himself behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the pecking order as Marco Silva’s Toffees hit top gear.
And Sport Witness, via Sporx, report that his old club Besiktas want to sign him on loan this summer and the fact that Tosun went to watch them play indicates the regard he still has for them.
Not too many Toffees supporters would be gutted to see Tosun leave, but it would be an expensive bust if he left Merseyside this summer without a transfer fee coming in.
Everton’s bid to replace Tosun could well be expensive business, and if they are to spend big money to land loanees Andre Gomes and Kurt Zouma, they’re going to need cash coming in to land an upgrade.
That said, it might be better for both player and club if Tosun went back to the country where he established his reputation, gained a bit of fitness and confidence before reassessing the situation next summer.
It remains to be seen whether Tosun makes the move, but he hasn’t hit the heights this season, that’s for sure.
