Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to perhaps the most bizarre transfer rumour of the week, as reports in Turkey claim the Toffees want to replace Cenk Tosun with Liverpool’s Divock Origi.
Everton fans were surprised last week when reports in Turkey suggested Tosun would leave the club in January, and now more reports from the striker’s home nation have added fuel to the fire.
According to Aksam, the Toffees are happy to allow Tosun to return to Besiktas, where he scored 41 times in 96 league games.
The report goes on to claim that Origi could be a potential replacement, as the young Belgian is likely to leave Liverpool in January.
Origi has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield due to the revival of Daniel Sturridge and the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri, and his ability to play either up front or on the wing could make him a shrewd signing.
Everton fans are bashing the links though, as the 23 year-old has looked a shell of his former self since the Ramiro Funes Mori tackle that damaged his ankle in 2016.

Us supposedly wanting to sell Tosun in January in order to fund a move for Divock effing Origi is right up there amongst the worse transfer rumour I’ve ever heard. That’s honestly “Everton are in for Kenwyne Jones” levels of howling. #EFC
