Everton will acquire the signature of Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun possibly by the weekend. The Merseyside outfit have sought to sign Cenk Tosun since the opening of the January transfer window as a bid of 25 million pounds was submitted.
Reports emerged early this week that negotiations had stalled between the two clubs. However, the two clubs have now agreed on a 27 million Pounds fee according to reports from Sky Sports
Besiktas president Fikret Orman has confirmed that the deal will reach its completion before next week.
“Our interests and the players interests are important,” Orman said. “Cenk wants to join Everton. We want to do our part and we are working on a replacement.
“The era of buy, buy, buy is over. This is the era of buy, add value and sell. A final deal has not been reached yet but we have an agreement over the price. The end is near. The transfer will be wrapped up by the weekend.”
