Everton striker set to leave for Bundesliga club

Cenk Tosun is reportedly weighing up an offer to leave Everton to return to his boyhood club Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Turkish international striker was on the Bundesliga club’s book since the age, but only made a single appearance before leaving for the Turkish Super Lig in 2011.
He joined the Merseyside club midway through in the January 2018 transfer window as they attempted to salvage their season with Sam Allardyce in charge, having sacked Ronald Koeman and failed to adequately replace Romelu Lukaku.
Tosun scored a respectable five goals in 14 Premier League appearances under Allardyce, but struggled during the 2018-19 campaign under Marco Silva, scoring just three goals in 25 Premier League appearances.
He’s since fallen out of favour and could be behind both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and new arrival Moise Kean in the centre-forward pecking order at Everton.
Earlier reports had suggested that the striker was willing to stay in Liverpool to fight for his place at the club, and turned down offers earlier in the transfer window. However, it’s since been suggested by German outlet Fussball News that his head could be turned by the club that first developed his talents.
Eintracht Frankfurt narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification last season and are said to be in the market for a new striker after selling Luka Jovic to Real Madrid for a substantial €60m fee.
