Everton complete signing of Cenk Tosun from Besiktas

Everton complete signing of Cenk Tosun from Besiktas

Tosun, who has joined Everton from Besiktas, and has been capped 25 times for his country, said he is eager to be involved in Everton's next Premier League game, against London club Tottenham on January 13.

The Turkish global has signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Goodison Park in a move understood to have cost in the region of £27 million.

"I bring my skills here and everybody is going to see what kind of player I am".

"It feels great to be an Everton player".

The Everton manager said on Thursday, "I think it is personal terms, [that] is the final stage".

Everton manager Allardyce identified the Germany-born Turkey global as the forward to add goals and threat to his squad following the failure to replace Romelu Lukaku after his £90m move to Manchester United. They can help me score goals. He is another who has not played a league game since Allardyce replaced Koeman in charge, and with reports earlier in the campaign suggesting he was sent home from training for a perceived lack of effort, the future of the Belgium worldwide is likely to be elsewhere.

"I'm really excited to work with my new team mates because Everton has really, really big names, big players". I believe I can be a good player in the Premier League for Everton. He is two-footed, perhaps not the biggest but he's very efficient in the air and in the box he gets good space to get his head on the ball.

"We looked at the qualities of the player, his talent and goalscoring, and his resilience too".

The 26-year-old Tosun, who has always been linked with a move to Everton, arrives on a 4-1/2 year contract and pledged to bring goals to a side who have struggled to score this season.

Speaking about the transfer on Thursday, Allardyce said: "Hopefully he will come to the club and show he is good value for money".
