Newcastle and Everton should have done all they could to sign Bas Dost

Everton and Newcastle United are set to miss out on Sporting Lisbon striker Bas Dost, who will sign for Fenerbahce according to Turkish news outlet Bein Sports.

What’s the story?

Dutch striker Bas Dost has been hot property this summer, with Everton and Newcastle among a number of teams interested in the prolific front-man.

Since signing for the Portuguese club in 2016, Bas Dost has scored an incredible 61 goals in 61 games in the Primeira Liga but following their failure to qualify for the Champions League this season, Sporting fans attacked players at their training ground which left the striker needing medical attention.

Bad news for Everton and Newcastle

Nothing can hide the fact that this is a massive loss for Everton, Newcastle and the Premier League.

Bas Dost is a quality striker who has scored wherever he has been and he would be available on the cheap this summer following the mass exodus from the Portuguese club.

There are few strikers around with the goal-scoring ability of Bas Dost and if there’s still any chance of signing the 29-year-old, the Premier League clubs should do all they can to thwart his move to Turkey.
