REPORT: Everton looking to sell £27 million flop

Everton are exploring the option of returning January signing Cenk Tosun back to Besiktas in a staggering move.

The Toffee’s purchased the forward for £27 million, with Sam Allardyce labelling the deal as one of real value, suggesting there was not a better striker around for that price.

Yet Tosun has endured a miserable start to life in the Premier League, with Allardyce seemingly retreating on his initial statement and questioning the striker’s talent.

According to TalkSport, Tosun’s failure to make an impression has led the ex-England manager to request his return to Turkey in the summer.


The Verdict

This is just another example of Everton’s inadequate transfer dealings.

They have failed to judiciously reinvest the £75 million they received for Romelu Lukaku and continue to make mistake after mistake.

It seems perverse that Everton would not give Tosun a proper pre-season and time to adjust to life in England; the forward has been involved in just four matches, and while his performances have been underwhelming, this is far from enough time to determine his suitability to the Blues.
