Newcastle United could be left even more frustrated at missing out on Cenk Tosun last summer, if he completes a move to Everton.
The Turkish international striker has attracted the interest of a number of Premier League clubs, and Everton were far from the first to identify his talents.
However, Newcastle refused to pay the £18 million asking price Besiktas wanted at that stage, and that seems to have been a mistake.
Tosun has scored regularly this term, and his price tag has now risen by £7 million.
And if Tosun hits the ground running at Everton, Newcastle are sure to regret not pushing harder to sign him when they had a chance, as having a goalscorer in their squad would have been a major boost to Rafael Benitez’s side’s survival chances.
