Besiktas’ management are set to fly over to England by the end of the month, as the Super Lig giants are keen to discuss a move for Everton forward Cenk Tosun, according to Takvim.
The meeting is said to be scheduled for May 20, but the Black Eagles are only keen to secure Tosun’s return to the BJK Vodafone Park on a one-season loan.
Takvim understand that Everton’s priority is to sell the striker in the summer if a suitable offer comes our way, but Besiktas hope they can convince the Toffees to sanction a temporary deal.
The Turkish publication also claim that Tosun himself is keen to return to his former side in the summer, after struggling for consistent minutes at Goodison Park upon the arrival of Marco Silva.
This contrasts what Turkish Football reported last week, when they suggested the 27-year-old would prefer to stay and fight for his spot in the squad, even though the £18million-rated forward has lost not only the faith of the boss but the club as a whole.
Since Silva’s appointment last summer, Tosun has made 29 appearances for the Toffees, but only eleven of those came as part of the starting line-up. The 37-cap international also only managed to score four goals, and assist a further three, in all competitions this term.
Besiktas, on the other hand, boast the most lethal offence in the Super Lig heading into the penultimate round of fixtures, but the Black Eagles find themselves third in the table and trailing city rivals Galatasaray and Istanbul Basaksehir by four points.
