What The Papers Say - 3 January

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Everton’s rumoured pursuit of Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun is once again discussed in Wednesday’s newspapers.

The Guardian reports the Blues will attempt to complete the signing today at a meeting with the Turkish club’s president, Fikret Orman.

But the Liverpool Echo runs quotes from Orman, who says the Toffees must meet their valuation of Tosun or the transfer will not take place.

Elsewhere, Everton have been linked with another Turkey international, with Barcelona winger Arda Turan supposedly ‘offered’ to a number of clubs.

Everton are also rumoured to have joined Southampton, Crystal Palace and West Ham United in the race for Atletico Madrid playmaker Nicolas Gaitan.

And finally, the Daily Mail reports Burnley are keen on Aaron Lennon, who is out of the contract at the end of the season, while manager Sam Allardyce is keen on Arsenal’s Theo Walcott.
