Everton have reportedly agreed a £25m deal to sign Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun during the January transfer window, and Toffees fans have been quick to have their say on the potential move.
According to The Guardian, the 26-year-old centre-forward will put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half year deal with the Toffees on January 1, as the Merseyside outfit finally look set to buy a replacement for Romelu Lukaku having failed to do so during the summer.
The Turkey international has certainly been in impressive form for Besiktas this term by scoring 13 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions, including four in six Champions League group games to help his team finish in first position.
Everton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the potential arrival of the striker, and while one said “this Tosun guy is just another Sandro Ramirez”, another believes he “is a hit and miss player on his day”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
If it’s agreed why don’t they announce it like VVD
You have to be sceptical. – plus 8 goals in Turkey is no better than Sandros record for Malaga and definitely not the proven PL players we supposedly need

No-one knows who he is. Suddenly all looking at stats from a completely different league

As long as he's not the only striker bought in

Shopping in BM when it should be harrods, Cenk Tosun is a hit and miss player on his day, 3 goals in his last 10 games, he will be another Sandro, Turkish league is pants.

No. Only because he's unproven in English football.

Seems reliable up top, We need a striker so we need all the help we can get

Might as well, £20 mil is on the cheap nowadays. Doesn’t need to be a world beater.

After watching 10 minutes of Cenk Tosun on YouTube, it's with a heavy heart I must admit that we have signed the Turkish-German born Pele.

Champions league experience. I think he will be a good addition.

Looks like Cenk Tosun is on his way then. £25m price tag and on a 4 1/2 year deal. Hopefully he can provide us with a new goalscorer to adore #EFC

After the summer excitement on players we knew lots about and others not so much arriving at Everton, completely reserving judgement on Cenk Tosun. Would be great to have a new striker in on the 1st though for league and Cup! #EFC

Cenk Tosun: Can hold the ball up, bring players into the games, is a presence in the box, will come short for the ball, can play with his back too goal, good with both feet, great at heading and can finish from most attaching areas. #EFC #CenkTosun

This Tosun guy is just another Sandro Ramirez #EFC
