And with Bayer Leverkusen, Red Bull Leipzig, Valencia and Roma sniffing around, Everton have flown a delegation over to seal his signature.

Besiktas' media spokesperson Metin Albayrak said "there is no offer for Tosun" after the club's cup game on Thursday, in which the striker scored before appearing to wave goodbye to fans after the full-time whistle.

But Allardyce insists Everton have a fight on their hands to land his top target. We need more goals if we are to maintain our position, we've started to struggle to create chance in recent matches so it's still one of our major problems.

And when asked yesterday about being linked with the 26-year-old Turkey global, Toffees boss Allardyce said: "Him and many others, because we need a frontman if we can find one".

The Blues travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday for what will be their final match of 2017.

Eells said negotiators need to keep it simple, and never make assumptions, as they never really know what lies inside. During negotiations, Ross changed his story and said they were alive and threatened to kill them, police said.

"We need to strengthen in our goalscoring areas, and that's, for me, new players".

Sam Allardyce has confirmed that a new striker is high on Everton's list of priorities in January.

"We've got more penalties than anybody else in the Premier League, which has contributed to a few points".

He added: "Players who are already in, like Sandro, have not picked up the pace of the Premier League and haven't been able to show what they showed in Spain".

Wayne Rooney is fit to return to action today after missing the goalless draws with Chelsea and West Brom through illness over Christmas.
