Everton sign new striker Cenk Tosun for £27m

Premier League side, Everton have added Cenk Tosun to their striking force after completing a £27m move for the Turkey international who agreed a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Tosun scored 20 league goals last season as Besiktas retained their Super Lig title, and has scored 8 league goals and 4 in the Champions League to help the Turkish giants to the round of 16.

The 26-year old, who had been in London awaiting permission to complete the move, said he was eager to be involved in Everton’s next Premier League game, against Tottenham on Saturday 13 January.

“I want to play as soon as possible.

“Everton has really, really big names, big players. I’m excited to play with them and to learn from them as well, players like Wayne Rooney and the very good creative players we have here, too.

“I bring my skills here and everybody is going to see what kind of player I am”, he said.

Meanwhile, Everton were defeated in their FA Cup third round clash with Liverpool on Friday.
