Everton signing close to completion despite angering club with offer, ?5m less than originally thought



Fanatik yesterday claimed Turkish press Cenk Tosun would be joining Everton for ?25m, and his transfer to the Premier League side would be announced soon.
It was reported Tosun would be joining Everton on a 4 and a half year deal in the next window.
However, Fotomac say Everton’s offer was actually ?20m and this hasn?t pleased Besiktas president Fikret Orman.
Orman yesterday confirmed: ?Cenk is like our son. He’s a person that we care very much about. But we don’t want to sell him at the moment. Even if we want to sell, then ?20m is not enough to get him. I think he’s worth more than that.? This ?20m offered by Everton is seen in the Turkish media as a bargaining tactic by the Merseyside club, and many Besiktas journalists suggest a deal is very close despite Orman concerns over the offer received from the English club
Besiktas are already in talks to bring a replacement with former Newcastle United striker Demba Ba close to agreeing a return to the Turkish champions, and Tosun?s time with the Turkish side seems to be coming to an end.
