Title: Cenk Tosun
Post by: pjk on December 25, 2017, 05:25:24 PM
It's looking more and more likely we have a new striker. Cenk Tosun from Besiktas. This is what one of their fans has to say on Twitter. Dembele of Celtic apparently is off to Brighton. :)

I once met a Turkish fella called Cenk when I was on holiday with the missus in Hisaronu.


He seemed like a nice guy until he touched my thigh and asked me to sing him Hero by Enrique Inglesias at the karaoke bar.

And for that single reason only, I'm out.

He looks to have more about his game than Dembele. We already have a young talented boy who isnít ready yet in DCL so we need someone with more experience who is more likely to hit the ground running.

For the money being mentioned if we can bring him in and offload Mirallas and a few others itíd be a decent window.

I've got a few friends who are Besiktas fans and they all rate him very highly. He sat behind the likes of Aboubacar for a few years without kicking up a fuss.

One of them mentioned that although he's not a naturally special talent his discipline and work rate are phenomenal. He's improved through extra training sessions and is an open admirer of C.Ronaldo's approach to the game, I could see our fans taking to him.

25m on a 2.5 yr deal should tell you everything you need to know about the validity of that information.

Klaassan was a questionable signing from the off. 

Plenty had reservations about Keane and thatís been affirmed.

Sandro is shocking.

Pickford is a good signing.

1 in 4 isnít great. More haste less speed might have been a better approach.

Tbh I don't know? 13 million seemed extremely over the top when you consider he was average at best in the Russian league and had a good few games at the start of one season which got him his move. Only way we get anywhere near 20 is if it's to another premier league team. Clubs in Turkey, or wherever he'll end up, won't be after him for that

I got a Christmas present last week. A Greek Philosophy professor who is sort of perfect present for me. She's feeling a bit down having lost another Philosophy professor, love-wise, etc. I sent her a piece of poetry I'd forgotten about. Recited it off the top of my head and apologised for it not being academic. That piece of Poetry will live with the Greeks for quite some time. I was honoured. I loved the fact, I was noticed.

Post by: cenktosun on December 28, 2017, 02:24:19 PM
Hello guys I am from turkey

So i think deal is completed about cenk and i wanted to give you some information about him.

So when he first arrived to turkey he went to gaziantepspor which is a mid level team and that team had a striker named Muhammet Demir ( 1 year younger than cenk they were saying hes gonna be future forward of turkey lol I never believed that cuz his body type wasnt build for a forward ) so noone paid attention to cenk or noone thought he was gonna be a big shot but his finishing was really interesting guys. he could score with his both left and right leg and from that moment i could tell this guy know HOW TO SHOOT. ( long distance aswell) but he didnt know how to be a target man or move with the ball, dribble etc. he scored 8 or 10 goals in a 13 games.

From his goal scoring abilities Besiktas bought this kid, he played behind mario gomez when he improved alot, he was ready actually but aboubakar came , and in turkey if you are foreign player ull have more chance to play for obvious reasons. Aboubakar played and cenk never give up guys he worked harder harder and some time after you could say he s way better than aboubakar cuz aboubakar is a type of player which i call stupid, they can miss a goal really easy like i could even score empty goalie. Cenk was never liked that hes a born striker.

This year came , and now he even started dribble ball control everything is adding up on him every single day more and more. Hes an interesting player guys. He can be like Luis suarez or ronaldo 9 in real madrid times ( not inter lol)  i am not clowning . However, even if he fails to adapt england, he can be a normal player in a premier league because he will score no matter what, cuz he knows how to shoot with both legs and score.

So even for me hes a pandoras box i dunno what to expect from him. For me, hes worth prob 16 million euros not 25 because hes in turkish league but considering his work ethic the money u guys paid is normal


I am really wondering what s gonna happen to him too in premier league.

I am a Fenerbahce fan , I hate Besiktas and all their players lol so my reply is honest as it can be

The most worrying thing ive seen is that his goal scoring record this season is the same as Kone, yet he plays for a better team!!
I hope he isnt the only reinforcement were bringing in as he looks very similar to Sandro in stature and approach, the only thing in his favour is the Turkish league is quite physical so it should be easier for him to adapt to that side of things?

That would've been the old days before Wenger lost his shit, now he just sits in the corner with his tin hat on swaying back and forth denying that Sanchez and Ozil would ever dream of leaving him

He seems to have a decent pedigree and in today's market is extremely cheap too. I know it's a little risky buying from abroad but I really wish we'd just fuck off the English and proven market. It's ridiculously priced and we seem to only get proven to be okay

We had strikers in at the end of the last transfer window, doesnt mean they're any good. Still to be convinced he is the answer to our scoring problems as his record isn't particularly great but time will tell, positive is he's in quick, but I was more excited about Sandro than this.

Looks very different to Sandro in that video, good hold up play, strength and lots of goals inside the box.

I remember someone doing an analysis of Sandro when we signed him and his expected goal output was way lower than he'd achieved in that season Malaga, largely due to most goals being spectacular and from weird angles... This guy seems to be the opposite with lots of good goals from the kind of area you expect a goal scorer to be getting them from.

There's no better feeling in football than when your team signs some exotic foreign footballer with a decent YouTube clip that you know fuck all about. It's sheer excitement. Unfortunately, it's 6 months down the line and that feeling has transitioned into the realisation you've signed the Turkish/ German version of Grant Holt that counts the most.

It is interesting to see how much stick our last number 9 is getting after his dream move. Same issues from the fans he had here, same goal gluts/droughts, same timing and importance of his goals, same work-rate discrepancy from game to game...

All any fan wants from their striker is consistency of performance and if the new lad can put in a physical shift every game and bring others into play this team will look a lot different offensively if it allows other players to have a platform to build on in the final third.

No I donít think so really, it will contribute but not for me.

We struggle to make chances because we lack the kind of midfield that can build sustained pressure in the final third, we lack bombastic 1-v-1 attackers who can commit players or attack space, we lack a deep playmaker and a 10 who can turn passive possession into incisive possession, and finally yeah we lack a decent striker who carries threat inside the penalty box.

I imagine what will happen with this lad is weíll spank it towards the corner flag and hope his quality is enough to get us near the box.
Title: Re: Cenk Tosun
Post by: MexicanToffee on December 28, 2017, 10:05:45 PM
If Rooney, Sigurdsson and Bolasie can provide some service then I can see no reason why this guy will not continue to hit the back of the net consistently. Might just provide the just the right ingredient that sparks the next development of Calvert-Lewin...fingers crossed.

I imagine what will happen with this lad is weíll spank it towards the corner flag and hope his quality is enough to get us near the box.

Of course we lack quality pretty much all around the park but we've not done atrocious for goals so far, 9th highest and 9th in the league so we're on par, with a young lad up top who is woefully short of the quality and influence we need.
Sigurdsson built his career by playing off a physical front man and the defence has been under constant pressure since day one this season as every clearance comes straight back at them, as DCL gets bullied most games and isn't experienced enough to buy a cheap free kick to relieve the pressure.
I'm not saying there would be a marked improvement in our position and we do still need an overhaul but you can see what Koeman was aiming for when he chased Giroud for so long with players like Bolasie, Rooney, Sig and Klaassan bought to provide a foil for a strong target man.

Word in the US directly from MLS is that Besiktas wants Cyle Larin (Canadian international striker) from Orlando City FC. That one is in the final stages, supposedly, so maybe the Tosun deal is next in line. It also seems like it's an opportunity for a fan farewell, which does seem very odd in risking injury for £20M+.

I love how the media still make out that clubs (not just us) let managers make all the decisions from identifying the player, sorting his wages, transfer fee, flight, accommodation, car insurance etc while also dealing with the day to day training of the players. They probably have to book and sort deposits for the Christmas part as well. No wonder they get paid as much. :)

I'm going to be honest, we've had better, more in depth reports from people who've apparently seen a player from a lesser known league than that. Where do people even see the Turkish league, I mean surely no one sits and watches Besiktas games in the Champions League?

I don't really care what other reports people have provided or feel the need to massively justify my opinion other than my observations while watching a player ....lets be clear I 've watched him play twice and didn't rate him- it's no big deal however I must admit I wasn't looking for his cock size etc....ill try to provide an in-depth report on length and girth for you next time.

Hello guys,

As you can understand from my username, i’m Besiktas fan and i watched all the games of Cenk Tosun in Besiktas. I wondered what Everton fans think about Cenk Tosun and came here. I decided to inform you about Cenk.

In the first year, when he joined to Besiktas, he was our third striker. (We had Slaven Bilic as manager that time and we still think Bilic was wrong about Cenk. He didn’t give enough chance to him, at least he could be second striker after Demba Ba.) Then Bilic went to West Ham and our new session started with Senol Gunes. And we had Mario Gomez as first striker. He was legendary. But we knew that if Gomez couldn’t score, we had Cenk Tosun. He was scoring almost everytime when he came from bench. After this season, Gomez left, we had Aboubakar from Porto as first striker. But Aboubakar wasn’t good enough at the outset and Cenk was scoring again. Cenk was training hard and improving himself every day. They played together with Aboubakar. And this season; we have Negredo as first striker but Cenk didn’t let to Negredo play. Cenk was perfect this season. I think with his current form, he is one of the top striker of Europe now. His finishing is amazing. Can you believe that three years ago this guy was third striker for Besiktas? He didn’t give up any time even when he was sitting on the bench. He is real professional. He has passion and ambition to work.  His blind side is just sometimes he can lose his concentration. But i think he will overcome of this too.

I don’t know if Everton deal is done or not but we are really sad for losing Cenk Tosun now. I hope he’ll be good for Everton too. And i think Everton won’t be his last station. He still has potential for more. Maybe he can be new Lukaku for you guys.

All the Turkish fans in fact. They are absolutely bonkers about their own sides, but they all support other Turks outside of Turkey wholeheartedly.

Nah heís arguing against signing proven PL players.

Iím honestly not sure what the answer is. I like the look of this fella to be honest but I am worried about his quality of league and the small sample size of CL opponents. And I guess weíre not paying Ďcheeky gamble moneyí where it doesnít matter if it goes well or not we are paying top whacko that we could well struggle to get back.

Dunno what to think, but if there ever comes a day when everton can sign some mad goal machine from a foreign league who Iíve never seen play and Iím not able to muster even a bit of hope and excitement, then put me out my fucking misery.

One thing I would like to say is, how well Besiktas fans have come across during this possible transfer, both on here and on twitter.

We all know how passionate and devoted Turkish football fans are generally but I think the comments and goodwill that I've seen towards Tosun and Everton reflects really well on Besiktas and their supporters.

True.

Always thought that supporters over there were crazy. Sometimes you need to be reminded that people are people just like you and me.

Besiktas national goal scorer Cenk Tosun, England's capital went to London. 26-year-old golcŁnŁn expected to sign Everton after the holiday
December 30, 2017 Saturday, 19:24:54 | Update:19:40:37
Cenk Tosun, who is known as Everton and many other clubs in the Premier League teams, flew to England. According to DHA, the wife went to London for a vacation with Ece Tosun at 17:30 today. Before the flight, Cenk, who did not refuse Besiktasli fans, took photographs with airport employees.
[​IMG]

THE LAST SITUATION IN THE TRANSPORT OF CENK TOSUN

According to the news in NTV Spor, Cenk Tosun has reached the last stage of transferring Everton. Merseyside team's football director Steve Walsh came to Istanbul yesterday to end this transfer and met with Beşiktaş Vice President Ahmet Nur «ebi. After the negotiations, it was learned that Everton agreed to pay a fee of 25 million Euros.

According to the deal, if the final details of the deal are discussed, the transfer will be announced in a short period of time in case of a compromise on the payment plan. A short holiday in London Cenk is expected to pass the health check on January 2. The national goalkeeper's blue-and-white club was signed to sign a 4.5-year contract.

THE FIRST MATCH MAY BE DENIED!
The 26-year-old goal scorer, who will sign the contract with the final step of the transfer, is expected to play in the Liverpool derby on 5 January 2018.  >>>>

I believe that he is gonna be succesfull because he has got available physic for the epl but only if the other everton players could manage to create chances for him. He is one of the top 15 finishers in the world and he is a fox in the box. 😢Thanks for everything Cenk Tosun and good luck to Everton.  :thumbsup:

Wow Sandro on £120k. Who told you that? I understand from someone in football (not Everton) that the average for 2nd rate foreign players in the PL was about £40-50k at middle ranking clubs. That makes Sandro either near to or actually our highest paid player apart from Rooney. (or did you mean £120k per year?)

I've been told £100k since he joined, but internet whispers do increase things!

He wanted high wages because the fee was so small and his agent worked very well

We have several players on close to that wage who don't make the first team regularly.

It's the new financial structure of the Premier League. God help anyone who gets relegated.

The only chance of getting him is hoping that the wage we are prepared to give him is more than the competition.

Well, hopefully, the link is right. He does look like a bit of a player, but... I said that about Sandro and that doesn't appear to be looking too promising ATM. They pushed that price up by at least 8 million, from what I can gather. That is, if all the figures in the article are accurate. Let's face it though, we're pretty desperate to get a striker in just now.

A term used to describe extremist liberals that get offended by every statement and/or belief that doesn't exactly match their own. These individuals think they are just as "unique" as snowflakes, when really their feelings are just as fragile.

watched him quite a bit when he was at madrid, was one of my favourite players, fantastic when he has time on the ball, but wouldnt be suited at all to this league, would be a liability tbh

Did the wrong fella actually play in that away cup tie at Wrexham? One of the highlights of the Li Tie period was before the matches watching well dressed Chinese tourists clicking away with their cameras at the less than salubrious buildings along Goodison Road. Lie Tie was a hopeless player, I think he was shifted out to Sheffield Wednesday?

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favourite.

In reality we'd need to sell quite a few players to fund that though.

Eh?? We've got crap loads of money haven't we? Which is why we're having our pants pulled down by everyone

I agree we'd have to offload someone but not to fund it surely?

I reckon both of those would be pretty good business though, I can't imagine bashuayi being too costly either if they're wanting to get rid

We've got a squad of over 30 players, most of which aren't very good and a decent number of them on over £70k/week I would say. Wage bill would need trimming I would think if we're going to add another two on over £100k/week to it.

Yeah i agree we deffo need to trim the wage bill

I thought you meant we needed to sell to fund the transfer costs, my mistake

Can't believe we have so many average players on high wages, i'm still in the mindset of 50k or over they need to be top class

Painful how long this has gone on for. We never do anything the easy way.

I'm really struggling to see what Steve Walsh brings to the table as our DoF. Apart from maybe Vlasic, who I fully believe was signed on the back of the Europa League games against Split, we haven't signed a single player that any of us sitting watching PL football every week couldn't have identified.

Tosun should be in the squad for Friday but won't be, purely because Walsh is inept. He flew out to Istanbul to finalise the deal almost a week ago.

From The Times tonight...........
Everton officials are due to meet with Fikret Orman, the president of Besiktas, in London tonight as the wrangling over the proposed transfer of Cenk Tosun continues.

Orman was scheduled to fly into the capital this afternoon having held a press conference in Turkey for the new signing Domagoj Vida this morning, at which he stated Cenk ďwas a very valuable player for usĒ.

Everton have made a bid in the region of Ä24 million (about £21.2 million) for the striker, but Besiktas are holding out for a higher figure which also does not include add-ons.

Everton held talks with Besiktas president Fikret Orman on Wednesday as they attempt to finally conclude a £27m deal for striker Cenk Tosun.

Tosun, 26, has been in London awaiting permission to complete his move.

But it has been delayed as Besiktas hold out for a better deal than the £25m Everton thought would be enough to get the transfer over the line.

Tosun has helped Besiktas reach the last 16 of the Champions League, where they meet Bayern Munich.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has identified the German-born Turkey international as the forward to add goals and threat to his squad following the failure to replace Romelu Lukaku after his £90m move to Manchester United.

Orman flew to London to try and reach an agreement with Everton as a transfer deal they hoped to do swiftly once the January transfer window opened threatened to become drawn out.

There remains a strong belief that a deal will be done before the weekend after amicable talks in London.

Tosun is keen to move to the Premier League and join Everton, who remain optimistic he will become Allardyce's first signing since succeeding Ronald Koeman.

Providing the paperwork is lodged with the FA by mid day Friday he can play however I canít see him being match fit as heís swanning around London with his misses, no training or bonding with team mates so Iíd be very surprised if heís included in the match day squad.

The Besiktas president has said that the striker Cenk Tosun will join Everton and that the transfer will be completed by the weekend.

The negotiations between the two clubs have been ongoing for several weeks and the two parties met in London on Wednesday, agreeing a deal which will see the 26-year-old join the Premier League side for £27m.

ďOur interests and the players interests are important,Ē Fikret Orman said. ďCenk wants to join Everton. We want to do our part and we are working on a replacement.

ďThe era of buy, buy, buy is over. This is the era of buy, add value and sell. A final deal has not been reached yet but we have an agreement over the price. The end is near. The transfer will be wrapped up by the weekend.Ē

We used to do that quite well. Now because everyone knows we have money we buy at the top and we'll probably have to pay players to leave.

If the selling party put up a brick wall it will take longer, all in all I donít think we have done too badly signing him on the fourth day of the window, we used to wait untill the 11th hour of the final day of the window to announce two or three loan moves.

to be honest, i think this guy can come in and have nothing to lose for the rest of the season. Bed himself into our culture and the league (not our current way of playing), and get used to our surroundings ready for next season and when Big Sam hopefully disappears.

It is going to be a huge difference for him coming into such a competitive league.

I am not so worried about his goals for the rest of the season - I just want to see what the lad is made of in terms of effort, first touch and his all round game. If he is a good footballer, then goals should naturally flow.

Absolutely. The key to a good striker is the service he gets, probably one of the reasons our recent strikers (barring lukaku) have been pretty ineffective. Rooney is capable of a killer pass but not consistently, and we miss quality delivery's from out wide since Baines' decline.

I donít think thereís any risk in playing a new striker against Liverpool.

Their defence is shite and full or errors, and then thereís that ďgoalieĒ they have. Granted they have VVD, but his form was appalling at Southampton and often record purchases have a stinker in them when they arrive.

If we were throwing a brand new CB or FB from a foreign league in against their front line Iíd have an issue. But with a striker I donít think itís a risk at all.

The (slightly) interesting thing here is, you'd have to think this is unambiguously Steve Walsh's recommendation.

I think these next few transfers will go a long way to proving Walsh's ability and whether he should continue in the role. Before now you could accuse him of lack of leadership, but there is a enough doubt about who was calling the shots when we see certain players come in who were ex-Koeman players, or the likes of Sigurdsson who seemed to be a Koeman favourite.

Ha, well...what does Steve Walsh do again? :)

Allardyce himself seems like a Walsh pick so hopefully they're on the same page. I'd imagine if things don't work out under Allardyce then Walsh will be out the door too.

Sounds like the Tosun situation is very similar to Koeman with Bolasie and Sigurdsson (and I think Williams to?), where the manager can request his own targets to the DoF based on his previous jobs scouting/recruitment. Which as we know didnít turn out particularly fruitful last time we worked that way.

Also not sure Walsh had any say who came in, Paul Joyce said the managerial search was conducted by Moshiri, Harris and Ryazantsev.

The contract was mentioned in Turkish press last week.

Donít think any deals are done these days without having agreed with player first (I know Allardyce mentioned personal terms yesterday but that will only be to keep up the charade of not speaking to player before agreement with club).

He was at finch farm having a medical yesterday so I doubt there's any complication regarding personal terms.

Even if he has asked for more money, it's perfectly normal for that to happen. They'll no doubt be a compromise between the two parties of he has suddenly raised his demands.

If thereís ever a problem with wage demands itís usually once they realise how much tax they have to pay, our accountants then show them how they can avoid massive amounts by setting up various companies for image rights, merchandise etc. and should get it done.

Hi guys,

I'm a Besiktas fan from Istanbul!

Turkish sport news site sporx.com reports that both sides have agreed on the terms of Tosun's contract and there will be a signing ceremony at 20:00 pm today (that is 17:00 pm CET).
Further they report that Cenk Tosun has been training with a private conditioner at the Everton facilities for three days. 
Anyone seen him around? :)
They tell he will get EUR115k (~GBP 100k) per week.

http://www.sporx.com/iste-cenk-tosunun-evertona-transferindeki-sozlesme-sartlari-SXHBQ679604SXQ

Not quite sure if that info is reliable, though.

But no matter what, it seems that this is a done deal.
As I see in this forum, the expectation level has skyrocketed, but I think it will still take some time for him to adapt. But afterwards, I am sure he will succeed. I have trust in him, and he has proven that before. He played as a bench player behind Demba Ba, Mario Gomez and Aboubakar. Only this year he was a sole starter sending Alvaro Negredo to the bench.

Cheers from Istanbul

Us Evertonian's have fabulously high expectations for a team thats won shag all for 30 years. As long as the lad can nab about 30 before the summer, i'd say he's done enough to warrant the price tag.

Let him get used to Sams way of playing, familiar with his new team-mates, country etc, then bring him on for the last 20min away to spurs, and full debut the following week at home to west brom.
