Everton: 45-cap ace 'has no future' at Goodison Park

Cenk Tosun has no future at Everton, according to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.

The 45-cap Turkey striker is out of contract at Goodison Park this summer and could therefore end his four-and-a-half year affiliation with the Toffees.

What’s the latest news involving Tosun?

Tosun joined Everton in January 2018 and was described by Sam Allardyce, who was managing the club back then, as “the best in Europe” at that price.

He cost the Toffees around £27m and arrived with a proven record in Turkish football with both Gaziantepspor and Besiktas.

Tosun made an instant impression by scoring four goals in his first seven Premier League games, including a brace in a 2-1 victory at Stoke. He would end that season with five goals in his first 14 appearances, which represented a decent return.

Do you know this obscure Everton footballer from the 1990s?

His first full campaign would see him score just three top-flight goals, which led to Everton losing patience with him.

Since then, Tosun, who earns £60,000-per-week, has played just 18 times for the Merseysiders and has spent time out on loan at Crystal Palace and back at Besiktas.

This season, injuries and a lack of opportunities have limited the striker to just three appearances and only 11 minutes of first-team action.

As a result, Brown expects this to be his final year as an Everton player, with a summer exit firmly on the cards.

What did Brown say about Tosun?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Tosun is out of contract. He’s also on quite a lot of money and obviously has no future.”

Should Everton let Tosun leave?

When Tosun signed back in 2018, he was hot property in European football, and Everton looked to have bought a real gem of a striker.

However, he has failed to justify his price tag, with just 11 goals in his entire Toffees career, which is a disappointing return for someone who scored 14 times in his final half of a campaign at Besiktas.

Therefore, with the likes of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front, Tosun isn’t likely to see much first-team football next season, especially if Everton avoid relegation, so a summer move away from Goodison Park would suit both parties.
