Who out of Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse should Everton sell?

Everton appear to have a decision to make in January.

Two of their forwards, Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse, have failed to convince this season and Marco Silva arguably needs to upgrade the position, meaning one would surely have to make way.

The emergence of Richarlison in a central role has made playing opportunities quite difficult to come by now for both men.

And on Saturday against Manchester City, youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin was given the nod to lead the line, with the Brazilian moving back out to a wide position.

There’s a suggestion that there is now little need to keep hold both, so what course of action should Everton take?

Selling Tosun

Tosun made a bright start to life at the club after moving for £27 million in January 2018, but his form has dwindled alarmingly this term.

He’s scored just twice in the Premier League – his last strike coming against Crystal Palace off the bench back in October.

The excitement over his signing has fizzled out fairly quickly, with Tosun disappointing regularly – which is a surprise given his impressive physicality that might have helped him flourish in the Premier League.

Everton would surely be able to make more money selling him to put towards a new striker than they would flogging Niasse.

Selling Niasse

Niasse is surely the likeliest to leave the club in January.

The Senegalese striker was linked with a move to Cardiff City last month, and has also been linked with a switch to Galatasaray in the past.

Silva hasn’t named him in any of his last 12 matchday squads, as reported by The Liverpool Echo, so there’s a good chance he will depart.

Niasse has been disappointing in front of goal.

That said, his work rate is something to be admired and perhaps he fulfills the role of second or third striker better than Tosun does as first-choice.
