Tosun Vows to be Everton Star

11 months ago

January arrival Cenk Tosun says he wants to become the leading man for Everton and help his new employers win some silverware in the years to come.

The Turkey international made the switch to Goodison Park from Besiktas last month in a deal reportedly worth around £27million but he has struggled to adapt to English football.

He has yet to open his account for the Toffees and the 26-year-old, who scored 41 league goals during his time with the Black Eagles, looks bereft of confidence.

However, after a week off with no FA Cup fixture, Tosun has had extra time to work on his fitness levels whilst also integrating with his new team-mates more.

Everton have won two of their last three Premier League matches, leaving them ninth in the table, and just two points separate the Merseysiders from Burnley in seventh.

Allardyce’s men travel to Watford on Saturday and Tosun is hoping he can develop into the player that can lead the line for many years.

“I want to be a player that can help Everton to achieve what we want to achieve as a club. I am working hard to be that player,” he told “In the long term I want to win some silverware in my career at Everton.”

Watford will be a big test for Everton and the Hornets have been in impressive form at Vicarage Road, winning three of their last five, which included a 4-1 thumping of Chelsea.

New man in charge Javi Gracia appears to have reinstalled the belief and confidence in the team and another three points on home soil could see the club climb into the top 10.

Everton won the reverse fixture 3-2 back in November but the Toffees have failed to win at Vicarage Road since 2007.
