Everton’s major problem in the first half of the Premier League season was the lack of threat up front.
The club failed to find a direct replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who joined Manchester United in the summer.
The Belgian scored 25 top-flight goals for the Toffees in the 2016-17 campaign, but no player in the squad has come close since he left.
Cenk Tosun was brought in by manager Sam Allardyce in the January transfer window, along with Theo Walcott from Arsenal.
The pair were recruited with the hope of bolstering the team’s attacking options, but one of the new faces has struggled.
Tosun has started two top-flight games and has come off the bench as a substitute in another.
Allardyce is yet to give the Turkish international a full 90 minutes in a match, and according to Sky Sports, the manager has claimed that Tosun is struggling to adapt to the pace of England’s elite league.
Everton fans have now been giving their thoughts about the situation on Twitter.
8 goals in 25 games for Turkey is a mediocre return, too.

the common thread through all this is #evertonFC, I think @DavyKlaassen and @CenkTosun_ will come through this and become first team regulars, but the club need an internal on the majority of our transfer dealings, Steve Walsh and Allardyce also. next season needs a new start.

Well it’s on his head this one along with Walsh. If he turns out a dud it’s massive egg on his face. No wonder moshiri wants value for money after the amount that’s been wasted

It all puts the manager in the spotlight he loves it….. it's all about him COYB

Proving the point this manager needs showing the door ASAP. club is a shambles from boardroom to the management team. Good luck in trying to sign any decent players this summer with this lot in charge.

It stinks of a manager (managers incl. Koeman) that haven't got the balls to throw them in at the deep end.
