Everton land Besiktas striker Tosun

Everton have confirmed the signing of Turkish worldwide Cenk Tosun in a £27m deal from Beşiktaş.

Sky sources understand that Everton will pay £27m for the 26-year-old, who is due in Merseyside for his medical, and Allardyce says the Turkey worldwide could be registered in time for Friday's FA Cup clash with Liverpool.

A signing which shows Everton manager Allardyce is looking in the right direction, Tosun's potential arrival could bring an end to the incredibly short Goodison Park career of Sandro.

Sigurdsson has created 28 chances so far this season, more than any other Everton player, but has recorded only two assists as the Toffees boast one of the worst shot accuracies in the Premier League. Everton is a great club with a big history and a big culture and I'm looking forward to showing the fans the kind of player I am.

With Tosun's move to Everton expected to be announced soon it looks like Besiktas will now move on Giroud.

"I think the club was resigned before I got here that they were going to lose Ross so I can't see that changing", he added.

'The Premier League is a strong league, I know that, so my own physical strength will help me.

"I want to play as soon as possible".

'The Tottenham game will be the first game I am available for and I'm very excited about it already'. He is a player who is desperate to come to play in the Premier League and I like what he has done in the past as a footballer, particularly recently as he is Turkey's No 1 striker.

"Everton has really, really big names, big players". 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.

Sam Allardyce was a big part of my decision.

Allardyce said at his pre-match press conference yesterday that talks over personal terms are advanced and that the frontman, who is reportedly valued at £27million, could even be registered in time for tonight's FA Cup third round clash with derby rivals Liverpool.

"We can't have researched any more and can't have looked at the qualities of the player, in terms of talent and goalscoring, and also from a resilience and mentality point of view".
