According to Phil Kirkbride of the Liverpool Echo, Everton have placed Cenk Tosun on the transfer list. The 27-year-old has struggled for form and playing time at Goodison Park and is expected to be moved on at the end of the season.

Tosun is behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the pecking order, racking up just 24 minutes of Premier League football in the last two months while failing to score a goal since October. The Turkish international only joined from Besiktas in January 2018 but he already appears to be finished with Everton.

The Toffees are reportedly requesting £20m for the centre-forward. Spotrac say Tosun earns £3.1m-a-year/£60k-per-week. Everton might struggle to offload the out-of-form player, however, as few clubs will be willing to pay so much for a striker on a six-month goal drought.

Marco Silva is looking to bring in a new centre-forward to challenge Calvert-Lewin for a starting place next season, closing the door on Tosun’s chances of getting a reprieve. He’s netted only three goals in 27 games in all competitions this campaign and has featured in just three Premier League games in the last 11 weeks.
