Cenk Tosun joined Everton from Beşiktaş in January 2018 and has found it difficult to replicate his form with the Turkish club at Goodison Park.

The striker failed to convince any of the managers he has played under at the Merseyside club, which resulted in him going out on loan to Crystal Palace and Beşiktaş in January 2020 and 2021 respectively.

His contract with the Toffees expires at the end of the season and the Istanbul club are said to be interested in signing the 30-year-old on a free transfer.

Earlier this month, we carried a report from Fanatik, who explained the Black Eagles have a ‘quota already reserved’ for Frank Lampard’s man.

The door to return to his old club remains open for the Turkey international. Beşiktaş president Ahmet Nur Çebi has now confirmed his side could bring Tosun back to Istanbul after this season.

“Cenk Tosun is currently a player of another team. It currently would not be right to talk. We’ll talk when the contract is up. I told him on the way out, if he wants to play in Istanbul, we will embrace him. We want him back,” Çebi was quoted as saying by Hürriyet.

Tosun is likely to leave Everton as a free agent in the summer and it remains to be seen whether he will return to Beşiktaş or join another club.
