Everton striker, Cenk Tosun, who joined the Premier League club in 2018 for a fee said to be in the region of £27 million is all set to return to the Turkish outfit on loan for the rest of the campaign. He has struggled to convince manager Carlo Ancelotti that he is capable of being the first-team option in the attacking department and has also been restricted to game tune at Goodison Park. He has played in only five Premier League games so far this season and looks Turkey-bound.
Russian giants CSKA Moscow have also outlined their interest in snapping up the Turkish international striker on loan while Newcastle United have also signaled their interest but after contract negotiations with his former club Besiktas, he appears to favor a move to where he was once a goal poacher before moving to England, Tosun played for Besiktas for four seasons. He is however unlucky to not have been able to convince his past Everton bosses that he is capable of nailing a starting berth at the club.
Turkish giants Besiktas are also very much interested in the deal, as they look to re-sign a player who played in 96 games for them and went on to score as many as 41 goals. They believe they can bring out the best in the striker once more after having his confidence shattered in England with English outfit Everton.
West Brom manager Sam Allardyce was the manager who oversaw the signing of Tosun from Turkey during his time as Everton manager and was also reported to be interested in signing the striker for the Baggies this winter transfer window but West Brom instead moved to agree a deal with Besiktas rivals Galatasaray on the transfer of their striker MbayeDiagne on loan for the rest of the season.
