Why Everton should offload Cenk Tosun
According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, Everton are hoping to offload Cenk Tosun from the squad but the move is currently on hold. The Turkish International joined Everton from Besiktas in the January transfer window in 2018 when Sam Allardyce was still in charge of the football club.
Tosun is a centre-forward who usually plays as a target man and can get on the end of things in the box but has really struggled since moving to England. Last season, he only scored 2 goals in the Premier League and this may be a limitation due to the system he plays in but that’s an abject return.
Everton really struggled in the attacking department and Tosun profiles like a target man who needs a runner beyond him in a 2 man forward line but with Marco Silva not playing such a system, he was bound to struggle and it’s best that he looks to play football elsewhere.
Everton are already loaded in the forward areas after their summer business with the likes of Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi being added, while already having Theo Walcott, Richarlison and Bernard. Everton have trusted Marco Silva to help carry the club forward and he’ll be under a lot of pressure to deliver this season.
Silva has gotten off to a decent start with an away draw in the first game of the season against Crystal Palace and a win at Goodison Park against his former side Watford.
Just as important as what happens on the pitch is what happens outside it and in the dressing room and getting rid of players, who are now considered to be deadwood. This is why it’s important that Silva is allowed to do his task in the best manner possible and getting rid of players like Tosun is a big part of his job

Everton have a good run of fixtures to start the season and Silva will need to use these fixtures to gain some momentum to build belief in the squad.
Everton will be eyeing a Champions League spot but will be fairly content with a spot in the Europa League. The Toffees have a massive squad with no places for many of their players and this is a step in the right direction.
