Cenk Tosun has vowed to bring goals to Everton and show fans ďthe kind of player I amĒ 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 Turkeyís Super Lig Ė 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 Ė Tosun has been described by the Blues boss as ďstrong mentally with a good pedigreeĒ.

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

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

ďI 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.

ďThe 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.

ďIím 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 Iím very excited about it already.

ďIím really excited to work with my new teammates because Everton has really, really big names, big players. Iím 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.

ďI know the guys as Iíve always watched Evertonís games from Turkey, so I know a bit about the team already. I hope they can make a lot of assists for me!Ē

Tosun joined Besiktas in the summer of 2014 from fellow Turkish side Gaziantepspor where he had forged a reputation as one of his countryís 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: ďThe manager and the Club really wanted me very much and that is why I am here.

ďSam 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.Ē

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

ďThis lad looks like he is strong mentally and has a good pedigree,Ē said the Blues manager.

ďHe is Turkeyís 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.

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

ďWe 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.Ē

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

He scored on his Besiktas debut in 2014 Ė a 1-0 victory over Mersin IY Ė 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 clubís youth ranks, scoring 20 goals in 40 matches for Eintrachtís 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 Ė scoring in a 2-0 victory over England on one of his two Under-21 appearances Ė 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 Turkeyís 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.

Doesnít look the sort whoís 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 weíve got another penalty taker as well.

Even with Baines, Sigurdsson, Rooney, Klaassen and now Tosun, weíll 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.

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

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 :(

Yeah I thought it was promising.

Looks like he doesnít mind the physical side of things (which someone like Jelavic didnít) and good movement across the line which should be useful in home games (rather than someone who just stands next to CBs).

"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.

Gets involved in the game, seems to have a good appreciation of general play etc.

Itís hard physically when you come from a top team in a lower league.

You come from somewhere thatís less physically demanding anyway and where your team has generally had most of the ball, to a league where because teams generally just play the ball back up the pitch if thereís any sort of pressure, thereís always something going on which means lots more running where thereís not much benefit at the end of it.

Anyway...

Most prem ready striker at the club by a mile.

One of his strengths in turkey was his physicality so it’s going to be hard adjusting to defenders who can compete better - showed some great hold up today though.

And of course give him a view at goal and he’s bagged which is a great sign.

Regardless, 2 in 2 might spark some form.

Not having him at all

Touch of the Jelavics about him

I'm a moody cunt though when it comes to strikers

Encouraging to see him being praised by lids who go the game though, im not seeing the same sat at home on me arse

You hit the nail on the head and you are right, the tv cameras do not show you his running off the ball, he is better than the coverage suggests.

Literally ran his arse off all game, went and made things happen, got himself involved, gylfi enjoyed having him as an option too. Baines was a massive difference, and I like that Bong for them, yes he was unlucky with the OG but decent little battle with seamus.

Walcott is a different class and I hope his injury isn't to serious

True, but I'd be blown away if he contributes anywhere near Lukaku's level and I'm sure you would agree.

He doesn't seem to have much pace and I'm not sure he has the strength to push defenders aside.... but I'm with you, goals are what he'll be judged on.

Not true. His pace alone would have defenders sitting deep, thus midfield has to sit a little deeper. Changed the whole outlook of our side for opposing teams when he left, hence the deficit we see now.

Tosun has plenty of other attributes and lukaku was our only out ball 9 times out of ten and all attacks under Koeman and Martinez went through him so his stats were flattering in reality and his goal record this year won't get close imho.

For me, no way Lukaku was as good as Kevin Campbell before the bad injury he got. Campbells finishing was just as good, he was just as strong, and his touch, understanding of the game, movement off the ball and ability to bring others into play was much better than Roms. His attitude was also much better, which is important - I think Roms attitude was slightly poisonous to team spirit at times.

Kev wasn't quite the same after he came back from that injury, and the fact that he played for us for a good few years after that has clouded peoples memory of how good he was.

Totally agree with that. However what Campbell did when we signed him on loan was nothing short of miraculous. He has to be up there with our greatest centre forwards for that alone. Saved us that season, saved my sanity as well.

I don't see anything special about Tosun but then again nor should we expect to yet. He hasn't played a full game of football for over two months, he's been called out by his manager in that time, he's in a different country, different language, different team-mates and into a club which is all over the place.

We'll get a better view if he plays every week from here on in but more likely after a full pre season we'll get a better idea of what he can offer in August. Still, if he continues to hit the back of the net most weeks it won't do his confidence any harm whatsoever.

Thought he was very good, most complete striker performances weíve seen all year imo.

Won challenges, hounded down defenders, linked up really well at times (the Baines one-two was excellent), and took his goal really well.

Yeah he doesnít look like a Jamie vardy pace machine or incredible technique-wise, but he played well imo.

Some mad shouts going on in here.

Anyway, just rewatched the goal again. He was heavily in involved in the build up to his goal which is really encouraging.

He came deep to pick up the ball, lay off to Baines, made a run to edge of the 18 yard box where Baines played it into him again. He played it back to Baines with a quick, accurate one touch pass. Baines did what Baines does best and picked him out nicely on the edge of the boss where Cenk finished the job with aplomb.

He looks like an intelligent player who is very economical with the ball. It remains to be seen how good he can be but if he can help us play our football with a bit more intelligence I have a feeling that will be very good news for us.

There's a weird mentality that's developed on here over the last few months. Certain posters don't back up their points, but rather hide behind "that's my opinion, you can have yours". Great, that's true of anything in life, it doesn't mean opinions aren't wrong, and can't be called out.

Like to see another really good pacy winger come in to play off him with Walcott on the other side of a three, although maybe Lookman could do that if he improves.

He's well short in league goals, and if you're counting every competition he's already played more games and still not scored as many yet.

He was always going to score at a lesser rate though, we built our entire attack around giving the ball to him and hope for him to do something.
He'd still be our best player by a mile if we still had him regardless.

Don't think being in a team like that where most teams sit back against hoping to get a 0-0 draw is a positive change for him really, he's at his worst with his back to goal.

He's still going to be top scorer for a side probably finishing second, but he'll always be a much more effective player counter attacking rather than against teams playing deep.

Playing Devilís advocate here, but I imagine he was referring to last seasonís league tally which he is well down on. He was in with a shout of winning the Golden Boot last season, this year heíll be lucky to make Top 6.

The lad will likely play 15 more games this year, Iíd be worried if he didnít score more in total than he did for us. Would still have him here though mind.

He is a fair bit off in the league, admittedly. Last season was his stand out for us, I'd argue that he'll get as many as his second best season for us (18), and won't be that far off last season's tally come the end of the season.

He get's a hell of a lot of criticism, when I think he's probably due to be cut some slack... it's a hell of a step up for him (mentally more than anything), and has had to adapt to a new playing style, all at the age of 24 still (which people forget).

Oh, and "lucky to make top 6"... he's 1 goal behind Sterling in 4th.

Deffo got Jelavic vibes, but frankly should have had a hatty today if DCL had set him.

Not amazing athletically. Incidentally I was impressed by DCLís runs in behind, looks in very good shape, natural athlete with good technical ability.

If DCL could bag heíd actually be a well better player than Cenk imo, but Cenk looks to have a ruthless streak which is priceless.

I joked about the Jelavic thing but donít really see it, Tosun looks a lot more physical.

If weíre conparing him to former strikers then Iíd go for Yakubu.

No donít see that tbh.

Jelavic was OK technically but not great, physically not quite enough for the prem long term st the level we wanted to get to.

Not seen a lot of Tosun so far of course and I have been impressed, like the look of him, but comes alive in the six yard box, looks a good instinctive finisher, but physically nothing to write home about but puts a shift in and doesnít shy away.

There were a couple of in the knows saying at the he could clearly finish, but wasn't showing much else in training.

He's also said himself that he felt a bit sluggish because he hadn't played for a while because of the winter break.

Just caught up on the highlights from yesterdayís game, so obviously now Iím an expert.

Definitely a difference having a striker that can take a chance, but two wins in two coinciding with Baines, Coleman and Jagielka in the side. We canít go into another season without addressing these positions. A better back up for Coleman and a replacement for both Baines & Jags (but also keep Baines).

Needless to say this involves Walsh fucking off and Moshiri getting someone in who knows what heís doing.

One of his big features for besiktas was that he took a lot of shots, variety of angles, both feet as well.

Looking forward to seeing that side of his game; make half a yard and boot through it.

Letís hope so, we are due a wee bit of luck against this lot, need to stop the supply to their front two so our midfield will need to work their bollocks off and hold up play from Tosun and Walcott is will be most important. Not a game for Bolasie, I think it will be to physical for him rather see Vlasic mixing it with them in the middle.

Nah no point dropping Bolasie, he’s stuck two right in the mixer for us back to back weeks, and has given Liverpool torrid times in the past.

I’d play Cenk and DCL and tell the wingers to whip crosses to the back stick. Take van dijk out of it with the flight of the ball and capitalise on Gomes/TAA being less capable than him.

Unsure what DCL has done to justify this sort of claim. He looks nowhere near ready to play in the PL to me and it would take a huge leap forward in 12 months for him to be good enough for us. He's got potential but can't think of any Premier League club where he would start as a first-choice. Tammy Abraham is just as good and isn't good enough to be a regular starter for Swansea. Loan to the Championship next season would be ideal I think.

I agree. The lad is neat and tidy but I don't see anything that makes me think he can hold his own at this level. Maybe he'll develop a killer instinct playing every week against a lower standard of opposition but for the time being I don't see much call for him being here next season if we do buy another genuine first team forward.

Not sure where the idea he ISNT good enough comes from. Involved in as many goals as anyone in our side this year.

Only things I havenít seen him do is a) take lots of shots b) strike a ball cleanly through and c) score score score

I know that seems really obviously important for a striker, but backing him to start producing.

From what Iíve seen in open play Tosun offers about the same but looks less mobile. He does shoot more and is more predatory but Iím personally saying given another 12 months DCL can potentially be better.

Fair play to the lad. I've got nothing against him but Tosun now level on Premier League goals in 20 less games. My original point is that he's nowhere near good enough to get us to where we want to go and that's the case with a lot of the squad. I think the stats in this case just serve to highlight how poor the season has been overall, with a lack of both individual and team success.

We've had to rely on him as we didn't have anyone else after last summer's fiasco and he's worked hard and chipped in with a few goals, but I don't see him going on to loan and being any PL side's first choice next season. Loan him to a Championship club and let him get a full season under his belt starting games and then reassess.

Like the look of him but back DCL to be starting over him inside 12 months.

I also think heíll have competition in the form of a new signing next year.

DCL can't score consistently. Besides heading the ball, his holdup play is also sub-par. Can't really back defenders down. If these two issues remain, there is no way he will be starting over Tosun.

All of Tosun's goals came with DCL on the pitch.

Pickford too. How is this related? Apart from the fact DCL should have scored before Tosun actually did at Stoke?

If DCL learns how to get himself into goalscoring positions and find the back of the net, weíll have a real talent on our hands.

On Sam Allardyce....

I get on really well with Big Sam. Heís been in contact with me for a long time and wanted me when he was at Crystal Palace. He made it clear there would be a place for me at Everton. Sam played an important role in the transfer [to Everton]. He was always open with me, he doesnít mince his words. He says whatís on his mind.

On Big Dunc....

We have a legendary player here called Duncan Ferguson and he has been a huge help behind the scenes. He stayed behind with me after training to work on my game and my fitness, getting me up to speed with the Premier League. He always believed in me. When I wasnít playing he helped me keep my head up. Heís been fantastic, we work really closely together, I think I remind him of himself a bit.

On Liverpool culture....

Iíve tried the Scouse dish. I like trying traditional foods but I have to say the English [language] here took me by surprise, it isnít what I was taught in lessons. Iím not going to lie I didnít understand anything when I first arrived. It is not the English taught in the classrooms. I remember my first training session, there are a few players in the youth team that have a really strong Scouse accent and I didnít have a clue what they were saying. I thought maybe I had not learned English properly but I could understand some of the others so figured out it must be a regional thing.

On Evertonians....

They pronounce my name really well to be honest, they call me Cenk but I have heard some of the fans call me Tosun Pasha [meaning King Tosun or General Tosun which I was chuffed about. Knowing they actually researched and spoke with Besiktas fans to learn this left me gobsmacked.

On tomorrowís derby....

This is a huge derby, I know what it means to the club and the fans. I always watched the previous Merseyside derbies. I am preparing myself. Iím taking it very seriously. This is serious, itís more than just a game. I know that and all that is important is the win. We want to give the fans something to cheer about. In a city with more than one big club these games mean everything

DCL shouldn't be anywhere near the starting eleven to be honest, we should be looking for much more.

Yes

DCL shouldn't be anywhere near the starting eleven to be honest, we should be looking for much more.

3rd choice next year would be sound, as long as we have Tosun and another who is top 10 standard (if Tosun is).

I think we can all stop the Jelavic comparisons.

He's clearly got a lot more to his game.

He was feeding off scraps at the weekend and making something out of nothing.

Got a superb touch and appreciation of the players around him. Showed some great awareness to try and lay that header on to Coleman.

Not as convinced, like the look of him but need to see more prem minutes.

I'd like to see any striker we bring in to challenge DCL and Tosun have some proper pace so we can rediscover the ability to play on the counter attack again. Fed up of seeing painfully slow build up and balls played in to feet all the time.

I think we will see the best of him with a quick partner up front. In the first half on Saturday there was a beautiful little flick on by Cenk into Rooney's path but he wasn't quick enough to get on to it.

Thought he worked really hard on Saturday and he does have a nice understanding of the game. Pre-season and better manager will help him and the team immensely.

This... is about as underwhelming a transfer story as I can think of.

A 28yo DM who Leeds United want. Yeah... I'll pass, thanks.
