Everton striker Cenk Tosun is claimed to have turned down an offer from Besiktas despite recent reports that he has agreed a deal to return to the Turkish side.
Tosun’s contract at Goodison Park expires in the summer, and he is anticipated to leave as a free agent in pursuit of more consistent playing time.
He is desired by Besiktas, where he is still a popular character and a reliable goalscorer.
Tosun is said to have signed an agreement with the Turkish giants last week on a three-year deal worth around €1 million.
However, according to Turkish newspaper Takvim, the striker turned down Besiktas’ demands.
On Sunday, Tosun attended the Super Lig match between Besiktas and Galatasaray, a day after meeting with Kara Kartallar sporting director Ceyhun Kazanci, who offered him a contract.
However, the Everton midfielder rejected down Besiktas’ offer, and more talks between the two clubs are set to take place.
It’s unclear whether the Toffees midfielder will return to Besiktas for a third season after receiving attention from other clubs.
