West Bromwich Albion linked with surprise move for Everton striker Cenk Tosun

There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Cenk Tosun in the last period.

According to the football transfer rumours in British and Turkish media, West Bromwich Albion are linked with surprise move for Everton striker Cenk Tosun.

The Turkey international joined Everton from Beşiktaş for a fee in the region of 22.5 million euros in January 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.

In 51 appearances for Everton, Tosun has managed to score 10 goals, and create 6 goals for his teammates.

The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Turkey.

He has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 16 goals in 42 senior appearances for the Turkey national team.

Cenk Tosun is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Everton this summer and the list of suitors in the Turkey international continues to grow.

Slaven Bilic wants to sign a new striker and Tosun is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Turkey international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Slaven Bilic wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Slaven Bilic is a long term admirer of Cenk Tosun and believes he can get the most out of the Turkey international.


The 29-year-old provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Turkish website Sporx claim West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Cenk Tosun from Everton. The newly promoted Premier League side are in the market to strengthen their attack this summer, and Sporx report the Turkish international is on Slaven Bilic’s radar for next season. Bilic and Tosun worked together at Besiktas for one season during the Croatian’s spell with the Turkish club, and Sporx claim he’s keen to sign his former player. Super Lig clubs Fenerbahce and Besiktas are also said to be interested in signing the 29 year old and Sporx report Everton want to sell the player for around €8-10m. This might give West Brom the edge in their pursuit of him due to the two Istanbul club’s financial issues. It seems Tosun isn’t in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans for next season, and the striker desperately needs first-team football ahead of the Euros next summer.”


WBA will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Cenk Tosun to join the club.

Everton are preparing to sell their striker should they receive right offer for him.

A move to WBA is exactly what Cenk Tosun needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.

Good signing for West Bromwich Albion?

The 29-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current WBA squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in West Bromwich Albion.

WBA fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see if West Bromwich Albion can beat their rivals to the striker’s signature.
