According to Fotomac (h/t Sport Witness), Besiktas are ‘preparing an 18-month loan offer’ for Cenk Tosun and could make a move for the out-of-favour Everton man in January. Tosun has struggled for playing time under Marco Silva this season and is no longer making the matchday squad.
With Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Moise Kean for competition, the Turkish international has a difficult task of getting minutes and may be considering his future ahead of the January transfer window opening. Besiktas may offer Tosun an escape route.
Club president Fikret Orman wants to bring the striker back to Turkey on an 18-month loan deal and could open talks with Everton very soon. If Tosun remains on the periphery at Goodison Park, it’s likely that he could consider a return to his former club.
As per Transfermarkt, the 28-year-old has made 142 appearances for Besiktas, scoring 64 goals and making 13 assists. He’s scored just nine goals in 44 games since joining Everton in January 2018 and has just 16 minutes of football to his name in 2019/20.
It’s hard to see Tosun getting a reprieve under Silva despite occasionally making the matchday squad, but it remains to be seen if Besiktas will be the ones to procure his signature.
