Everton exodus begins as £27 million man inches closer to potential exit

Cenk Tosun could be sold this summer as Fenerbache is in talks with Everton.

Everton has spent useless money on a number of players who have failed to perform as per expectations. One such name that comes to my mind is of Cenk Tosun. The Turkish international completed a move to Everton in 2018 from Besiktas for a fee rising to £27 million. Looking back at the time Tosun has had at Goodison Park, one can say the £27 million have gone down the drain.

The 29 year old has featured in 51 games for the Toffees and has only netted 10 times, a poor return from an outright poacher. The club board grew so tired of Cenk Tosun that they were desperate to offload him in the 2020 January transfer window.

To their rescue, Crystal Palace came just in time to offer temporary asylum to Tosun in the form of a loan deal. The Eagles were kind enough to pay £1 million as a loan fee and fully cover the £100,000 weekly wages of the 29 year old.

Marcel Brands and Carlo Ancelotti are trying to instate the hungry, young and dynamic culture at Finch Farm and for that to happen the deadwood needs to be sold. At this point, Tosun is of no value to the Merseysiders.

Ancelotti operates his troops in a 4-4-2 or a 3-5-2 and the two striker positions are currently held by Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Moise Kean is below them in the pecking order but will be preferred to Cenk Tosun.

There might be some good news for Everton fans as Cenk Tosun could be lining up for a potential exit. New Fenerbache director Emre Belozoglu will hold talks with Marcel Brands over a potential deal for Cenk Tosun, as per Fotospor. The Turkish giants are in the market to sign a clean and dangerous goal scorer and are eyeing the 29 year old.

The Turk has a chance to return to Super Lig and revive his career. He has had a rather forgetful time in England and could be open to a move to his Turkey. Emre Belozoglu is confident of convincing Brands and the Everton board also won’t play hardball in letting Cenk Tosun go.

The report also mentioned that the names of Bernard and Yerry Mina will also be discussed during the Zoom meeting. All in all this is a good sign as the Toffees have a large chunk of deadwood and selling them will be key to new arrivals. It is safe to say that the summer exodus has begun as Marcel Brands and Ancelotti aim to rebuild the squad.
