Everton Agrees £27m Deal for Besiktas Forward, Tosun

Everton have completed the signing of Cenk Tosun, signing the Turkey striker on a four-and-a-half-year contract, per the club's official website.

During his time at Besiktas, Tosun has played alongside the likes of former Premier League striker Demba Ba and former Bayern Munich man Mario Gomez.

Tosun has scored 14 goals in 26 appearances for club and country this season, with the German-born striker helping Besiktas to win their UEFA Champions League group as they face Bayern Munich in the last 16.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce is ready to throw Cenk Tosun into tonight's FA Cup blockbuster with Liverpool.

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

Everton now sit in ninth spot in the Premier League standings with a seven-point cushion over the relegation zone and are next in action at Tottenham Hotspur on 13th January.

"I'm really happy to be here and happy that everything is done".

Amazon set to bid for Premier League streaming rights
British telecoms Sky and BT won the last auction, which brought in $6.9B. In August, Amazon outbid Sky for the ATP tour tennis rights.

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

Allardyce described the signing, his first as Everton manager, as a massive boost for the club.

His first match for Everton may come at Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on January 13.

"This lad looks like he is strong mentally and has a good pedigree", Allardyce said in a statement.

I'm excited to play with them and to learn from them as well, players like Wayne Rooney and the very good creative players we have here, too.

"You can't look at more than we have done and think that this is, for what is available at the price we are paying, the best in Europe at the moment". 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. If we get the transfer done and he is successful for us by scoring goals it will be an exceptionally good deal for us.
