Cenk Tosun has found it difficult to adjust to the Premier League intensity

2. Cenk Tosun

Cenk Tosun arrived in 2018 as Everton searched for a distinct poacher capable of replacing Romelu Lukaku who had left for Manchester United in 2017. Tosun arrived with a reputation of being a tantalizing poacher capable of drilling goals from the box.

However, the failure to settle into the Premier League meant that Everton’s £27 million have been flushed down the drain. In 61 games for the Toffees, Tosun has netted mere 11 goals, which isn’t a convincing number for a striker. Injuries also demolished his confidence and stopped him from getting into any sort of rhythm.

There have been numerous reports emerging from time to time about Besiktas eyeing a reunion with Tosun but so far nothing concrete has been established. There’s no chance for Tosun to extend his stay at Everton as the Toffees are well stocked in the striking department. With Ellis Simms and Nathan Broadhead emerging, Tosun’s time is up.

The Turkey international signed four and a half year deal in 2018, pocketing £60,000 weekly and £3.12 million annually. The Toffees will be able to save that much amount starting next season due to the 30 year old’s departure.
