Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that he expects Everton striker Cenk Tosun to be sold this summer.
Tosun arrived in a £27million deal more than three years ago, and was initially signed as Romelu Lukaku’s replacement.
But he’s never quite been first-choice at Goodison Park, although his time on Merseyside has been overshadowed by an ACL injury sustained whilst on loan at Crystal Palace which saw him spend eight months on the sidelines.
The £60,000-a-week striker is currently on loan back in his native Turkey with Galatasaray, and has scored three times and added one assist in less than 200 minutes of Super Lig action since his move in January.
However, with just 14 months remaining on his current deal, Bent expects his former side to cash-in on the Turkish international.
He told Football FanCast:
“He picked up an injury, and he keeps picking up injuries, so he’s another one they probably want to get out the door.
“For the future of the club and the future of the player they probably come to a decision where they probably know they’re going to move now and are probably talking to their agents, the board and the club.”
