Tosun still has a role to play at Everton if he is willing to be a backup option

Marco Silva is right to say that Cenk Tosun still has a role to play at Everton – but the Toffees need a new first-choice frontman.

Cenk Tosun’s first full season at Everton has not gone as well he would have hoped but his manager Marco Silva has insisted that he has a future at the club, as per the Guardian.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has played up front in recent matches and Richarlison has filled the role for much of the season, but Silva moved to dismiss speculation about Tosun’s future.

After Tosun was left out of the squad for the 5-1 win over Burnley, Silva said: “Of course Tosun has a future here. Why would he not? I decided to go with Oumar Niasse for a change, that’s all.

“James McCarthy and Morgan Schneiderlin were also not in the squad but that was one specific game for which we decided to change the formation.”

And while Tosun has been underwhelming this season, he still has a role to play if he is willing to be a backup striker – a Plan B.

 

There is no doubting that Silva needs a more reliable and dynamic first choice hitman, but Tosun is a useful alternative to have; a more physical option and useful for rotation.

So as long as Tosun is prepared to see someone else be the main man, there is no reason why his Everton career should end yet.
