Cenk Tosun has vowed to bring goals to Everton and show fans “the kind of player I am” after the striker completed his move from Besiktas on a four-and-a-half-year contract to the end of June 2022.

The 26-year-old Turkey international, capped 25 times for his country, revealed that the eagerness shown by manager Sam Allardyce and by the Club to secure his arrival at Goodison proved persuasive in his decision-making.

Strong, two-footed and a formidable goalscorer in his time in Turkey’s Super Lig – in 96 appearances for Besiktas since the start of 2014/15 he has scored 41 goals, more than any other player in the division in that period – Tosun has been described by the Blues boss as “strong mentally with a good pedigree”.

And he is determined to show Evertonians that he can replicate his form in the Premier League, having spearheaded Besiktas’s charge to successive domestic titles and into the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League.

“It feels great to be an Everton player,” Tosun told evertontv. “I’m really happy to be here and happy that everything is done. I’m really excited to play for Everton as soon as possible. Everton is a great club with a big history and a big culture and I’m looking forward to showing the fans the kind of player I am.

“I bring my skills here and everybody is going to see what kind of player I am. I believe I can be a good player in the Premier League for Everton.

“The Premier League is a strong league, I know that, so my own physical strength will help me. Also I can use both feet the same and I believe I am a good striker in the box.

“I’m really looking forward to training with my teammates and getting to know them and, of course, I want to play as soon as possible. The Tottenham game will be the first game I am available for and I’m very excited about it already.

“I’m really excited to work with my new teammates because 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. They can help me score goals.

“I know the guys as I’ve always watched Everton’s games from Turkey, so I know a bit about the team already. I hope they can make a lot of assists for me!”

Tosun joined Besiktas in the summer of 2014 from fellow Turkish side Gaziantepspor where he had forged a reputation as one of his country’s most lethal forwards.

Tosun scored 20 league goals last season as Besiktas retained their Super Lig crown and scored a contender for Champions League goal of the season with a brilliant bicycle-kick finish past Benfica goalkeeper Ederson.
He added: “The manager and the Club really wanted me very much and that is why I am here.

“Sam Allardyce was a big part of my decision. He said he really wanted me here and to feel that, of course, is another big reason to come to Everton.”

Allardyce made Tosun his No.1 target in January and he is pleased that the deal has been sealed early in the transfer window.

“This lad looks like he is strong mentally and has a good pedigree,” said the Blues manager.

“He is Turkey’s No.1 striker and has scored goals in the Champions League and the Turkish League but he is desperate to play here in the Premier League.

“He is an all-rounder, with good movement. He is two-footed, perhaps not the biggest but he’s very efficient in the air and in the box he gets good space to get his head on the ball.

“We looked at the qualities of the player, his talent and goalscoring, and his resilience, too. I do not think you can look any more than we have done and, for the price, he is the best in Europe at the moment.”

Tosun arrives at Everton one week after scoring on his farewell Besiktas appearance in a Turkish Cup tie – and after finding the net the eight times in 12 league starts this season.

He scored on his Besiktas debut in 2014 – a 1-0 victory over Mersin IY – and struck his first European goal in the same year to propel his side to a 1-0 Europa League win over Tottenham Hotspur.

Germany-born Tosun was snapped up by hometown club Eintracht Frankfurt aged five. He was a star of the Bundesliga club’s youth ranks, scoring 20 goals in 40 matches for Eintracht’s Under-19s.

But after making one first-team appearance for the German side he was prised to Turkey by Gaziantepspor where he made a lightning start, scoring six goals in his first six matches.

He ultimately scored 39 goals in 92 starts for the mid-table side and won his first Turkey cap in a World Cup qualifying match against Holland in October 2013.

Tosun represented Germany at every age group level from Under-16 to Under-21 – scoring in a 2-0 victory over England on one of his two Under-21 appearances – before pledging his allegiance to Turkey, the birthplace of both his parents.

He represented his country at the 2016 European Championship and, with eight goals from his 25 appearances, is Turkey’s first-choice striker.

Very little pressure I'd say. Nobody has really staked any sort of claim to be the main striker, we're out of the running of every competition so while I hope he is super impressive from the get go, he can get away with a decent handful of goals, showing some good hold up play...basically showing signs of being a competent PL striker.

Plus until we get the service right, he has a little leeway from the start. He's not going to score if we can't create chances for him. These are the problems our other strikers have been dealing with too. The hope would have to be that he'd be able to hold the ball up better and bring others into the game more so in turn we'd create more chances. If we can get an attack minded LB and perhaps a forward thinking CM/AM we may find some balance and may yet play some decent football between now and the end of the season.

This is part one of at least a three part puzzle in the short term.

It actually makes sense when you think about it. The people on Twitter were obviously thinking 'people wont be arsed about this mediocre signing if we get beat' So they said it whilst there was still a glimmer of hope left in the derby.

On the podcast that someone kindly linked to earlier in the thread, the Turkish journo mentioned about besikas fans still  following their players when they had left the club and that we would "gain" 1.5m Turkish followers. I imagine it would be something to do with the timing in Turkey for them then, as there's no other reasonable explanation.

It doesn't really matter though.

Doesn’t look the sort who’s going to run all day like DCL or bring other players into play much but seems to come alive when the ball does get around to him. Capable of holding up the ball to a basic level, composed in the box and always on the move when it does get near him.

Looks like we’ve got another penalty taker as well.

Even with Baines, Sigurdsson, Rooney, Klaassen and now Tosun, we’ll probably lose a potential shootout knowing Everton.

Massively dependent on service. Need to get him the ball into feet as much as possible, ideally with support. If we can do that, then hopefully we can get a proper idea of him as a player over the next few weeks. Wouldn't expect too much against Spurs.

Came across very well so far in interviews and social media. Speaks good English and says all the right things.

Cenk appears a bright lad and should up the dressing room IQ, especially now that Barkley's gone. :snigger:
So let’s call him Jenksy and see how we get on

Will give him the seemingly mandatory 38 games before making up my mind. Full games though, not combined minutes on the pitch.

Id like to think this is an option but I think he'll be thrown in at the deep end and its either hit the ground running or you dont make it as we'll sign someone else.

Massively dependent on service. Need to get him the ball into feet as much as possible, ideally with support. If we can do that, then hopefully we can get a proper idea of him as a player over the next few weeks. Wouldn't expect too much against Spurs.

Sam best change his tactics up a bit then..... im growing tired of the very predictable attacks down the right ending up with a wayward cross from Holgate :(

Thought he looked decent given it was his first game in the PL and what he has to work with.

Wins every header.

You can see already he’s light years ahead of DCL or Niasse.

Yeah I thought it was promising.

Looks like he doesn’t mind the physical side of things (which someone like Jelavic didn’t) and good movement across the line which should be useful in home games (rather than someone who just stands next to CBs).

Yeah very positive first performance from the lad, although I bet he's already beginning to wonder what he's let himself in for.  He didn't have a sniff to judge his finishing on but put himself about well, held the ball up well, was good in the air, and looked decent with his use of the ball.

I never comment and just read around here but I’m calling this out for BS. It was 7 years ago and he was 19. The fact so many Turks are interested in Everton now speaks volumes of the esteem he’s held in by Beşiktaş fans - who he played for for a lot longer than Eintracht.
He may well be a dud, but this claim is utter bullshit. According to Beşiktaş fans nobody worked harder.

Id have preferred him to have started over Niasse like but we should not be writing him off after 1 and a half games.

"so many Turks" is a bunch of fake twitter bots that were deployed by Besiktas to generate excitement among the Everton fanbase for the proposed transfer.

When you consider the money at stake and the very low cost these days of deploying fake accounts on social media, it's almost more surprising that this kind of tactic hasn't been adopted sooner.

Turkish player of the year?  ;)

In Cenk's case, it seemed organic enough, there wasn't much contention. When people try to force or change a narrative, you'll normally find disputes, or people in the know whistleblowing, calling the information into question. Not seen anyone doubting Cenk was a quality, effective and respected forward in Turkey. But do think the opposition fans thanking the potential buying club would be a fairly easy one to push.

When clubs are negotiating price, selling clubs put out rumours to try and increase price, if a buying club can devalue, they'll probably do that. Can't remember too many players being bought because of fans, but it could certainly grease any friction if you caught a bite. When there is less knowledge, the variables are more malleable.

From his profile and watching him run about a bit, I'd be expecting him to be someone in a Costa type mould, strong, abrasive, making space for others, decent finisher, aerial threat etc. Presume the idea would be to get Sigurdsson to put the ball on his head.

Don't hold your breath him ever having a shot mate while Allardyce is in charge. He doesn't believe in scoring goals.
