The British tabloid has claimed that Everton manager Sam Allardyce wants to sign another striker despite the recent signing of Turkey worldwide forward Cenk Tosun from Besiktas.

This deal makes Tosun the most expensive football player in Turkish Super League history.

Tosun scored 41 goals in 96 appearances for Besiktas since the start of 2014-15 season.

"It feels great to be an Everton player", Tosun told evertontv.

Tosun also underlined that he is looking forward to proving himself to Everton fans and showing them just what he is made of.

He said: "This lad looks like he is strong mentally and has a good pedigree".

"I have played against him a couple of times for Iceland, so I know he is a good player".

'I bring my skills here and everybody is going to see what kind of player I am. "He is Turkey's No.1 striker and has scored goals in the Champions League and the Turkish League but he is desperate to play here in the Premier League". I'm excited to play with them and to learn from them as well, players like Wayne Rooney and the very good creative players we have here, too. They can help me score goals.

But the boss was also quick to point out that in order for the Toffees to bring players in, they would have to make cuts to the squad first.

The manager and the club really wanted me very much and that is why I am here, ' Tosun said.

Davy Klaassen was considered a high profile signing when he arrived from Europa League finalists Ajax back in June, but having not featured in a single Premier League game under Sam Allardyce the impression is that already his days on Merseyside are numbered.

Everton has been on the hunt for a good forward after failing to replace Romelu Lukaku who was transferred to Manchester United. While three of Everton's other forwards are yet to hit the target.
