In today’s instalment, we have bit of a party by the London teams, some more Manchester madness and a completed medical. Let's dive right in…
#5 Medical done
For almost the entirety of December, Everton have been linked with a multitude of players by a multitude of outlets, but to no avail. However, there might just be light at the end of the tunnel for Evertonians as the club is on the brink of signing the striker they have been chasing for quite a while now.
According to the Guardian, Besiktas have agreed to sell their star striker, Cenk Tosun, to Everton for a fee of £25 million. The Turkish hitman had been on the radar of Sam Allardyce and will finally join the club on the 1st of January—when the window opens.
It has been further reported that the player’s father had accompanied him to the club to complete a medical and negotiate personal terms. This comes as a great news for Everton fans as they had been looking for someone to replace Romelu Lukaku.
