Right now, as these words are being typed, Cenk Tosun is playing his farewell match for Besiktas, report Fanatik in Turkey.
Besiktas are playing against Osmanlispor, and Fanatik say it’s his farewell game before a move to Everton.
The Turkish newspaper report that everything is agreed and he’ll move for €25m, getting a four and a half year contract which it’s reported will be worth €4m a season.
After the match, Tosun will go for a short break to Dubai, and he’ll then travel to sign for Everton.
Fanatik headline their article ‘Here is the date Cenk Tosun will sign’, but don’t actually give a precise date. Instead it’s explained Tosun will sign for Everton in the first week of 2018, after his holiday.
This has been presented as an imminent deal by the Turkish press for days, with them getting to the story before their English counterparts. Fanatik are certain this transfer is a sure thing, and Tosun will be an Everton player next week.
