Everton striker Cenk Tosun is an option for Eintracht Frankfurt as they look to replace Bas Dost, who is set to join Club Brugge.

The Dutch striker is set to make the move to Belgium on January first, with Frankfurt having agreed a £3.6m deal to bring his time at the German club to an end after a year.

His departure has left the Bundesliga side with a gap in their forward line, something they will look to rectify in the January transfer window.

Frankfurter Allgemeine cover the situation and say that Eintracht will look for a more ‘cost-effective solution’ after getting Bas Dost, one of the club’s big earners, off their books.

Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic has already been linked with a return to the club, but that would only be possible if Madrid agree to takeover a ‘large part’ of the Serbian’s salary.

He is not the only one on their list, though, with Everton’s Tosun and Bayern Munich’s Joshua Zirkzee having also ‘joined the list of candidates’.

Tosun is expected to leave Goodison Park in January in search of regular playing time, with him currently playing a back up role to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

He’s been linked with a move to West Bromwich Albion and a reunion with Sam Allardyce, while Besiktas have also made it clear they want him back.

Frankfurt can now be added to his suitors, although FAZ make no mention of what sort of deal they would be looking to strike with Everton for him.

Their interest presumably comes from the fact Tosun made his breakthrough at the club, having risen through their youth ranks between 2007 and 2009.

He managed just one appearance for the senior side before leaving for Gaziantepspor in 2011 but was linked with a return in August last year.

That interest has now seemingly been revived, with the striker looking likely to have several options should he end up leaving Everton in January as expected.
