Would hope he's confirmed in time to play tomorrow but it seems unlikely.

Will he solve our problems? Hopefully one of them. Even if he's excellent, we still need a left back, centre back, defensive midfielder and a winger.

If he can create goals for himself, whilst also winning the ball in midfield and being a solid defender then yeah, he'll solve our problems.

Erm... I don’t really get this signing to be honest. He’s not what you’d call prolific in a very poor league so I’m not sure how he’d fare in the Premiere League?

i don’t get why Everton aren’t going all out for a proven goal scorer at this level?

Theo Walcott when played consistently has always scored goals, maybe he’d be worth a punt? Why not a cheeky bid for Jamie Vardy? 

Tosun just seems like another Everton signing that will flatter to deceive and be forgotten about within 3 years.

You say level as if the Premier League is good. It's shite. Wayne Rooney has 10 goals so far ffs!

He has the same amount of Champions League goals as Aubameyang, Lukaku, Mbappe...

If Everton needed a striker, why would they go after Theo Walcott? He’s played little on the wing, little over the past five or so years and he’s not exactly a 15 goal striker. Plus he’s 28/29 now, it’s not exactly a good signing at all.

He may work out and be outstanding mate. Was just my opinion that’s all. 

You cant really compare a 27 year olds CL record with 2 players that have 1 CL campaign’s under their belts. That really bends the stats mate.

I might be wrong and I really can’t be arsed to research it but I’m pretty sure, when played regularly, Walcott has scored over 15 goals a season a fair few times? 

Anyway, I’m not saying Walcott is the answer. I was just throwing a name into the mix. 

As I said, Tosun might be the answer but if you are bringing age into then Tosun is about 27 himself is he not?

Tosun cant be worse than what we have and in this market it's a good signing if he gets about 8 goals in the second half of the season for £27m

Ten last year, three the previous three and 14 before that. That’s as far as I looked.

Only Lukaku has less CL appearances than him.

How many appearances have they each got... about 10? 

CL goals isn’t what you need anyway, it’s a good, consistent, top level striker.  Let’s hope your new man is that guy.

And that’s been a bit part player. 

Make him the main man and I reckon he’d be ok for Everton. 

Anyway....

If it's works out.. it's a steal, if not, you have to wonder whether clubs going for players of this bracket for what is still a high price, should just pay over the odds (20/30m more) for a proven article is the way to go. Although I understand Everton did have a pop at trying to sign Costa and failed.

For £27m around a 20 league goal return is required imo. It would be a lot of money to pay if he's a 10-15 goal man.

It's not like he's moving to a big club after trophies, he's moving to a club who are associated with a top ten-6 position finish who are managed by Sam Allardyce. As long as he scores 15-20 goals a season they'll be laughing

Everton boss Sam Allardyce says new signing Cenk Tosun has to work harder on his fitness if he is to cope with life in the Premier League.

Everton fly to the Middle East on Wednesday for a warm-weather training camp, and Allardyce is hoping the break will help Tosun who has struggled with his fitness and the English weather.

The Turkish striker arrived from Besiktas for £27m in January but has failed to break into the Everton side, starting just two games since arriving from Turkey.

Im curious what warm-weather training does for a person who needs to improve their performance/fitness in a much colder climate? I'd imagine it doesn't do them too much good considering the two air densities are completely different from each other? ELI5 please.

Cold weather makes muscles tighter, which makes cramps, strains, and tears more likely. Warm weather training can mean more intense training is possible with a smaller risk of injury.

@The Palace Fan will love this

 

When people say he wasn't a Sam Allardyce signing, I do point out that two of our summer targets (Tosun and Mangala) are now at Everton. 

We wouldn't get the best out of him anyway.
