After becoming the first Turkish player to score a brace in the Premier League since Tuncay Sanli did for Middlesbrough way back in 2008, Cenk Tosun is providing more and more reasons to believe that he has the ability to replace Everton Football Club’s highest ever Premier League goal scorer, Romelu Lukaku…
He struggled against West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur and was dropped. Cenk Tosun hadn’t made an encouraging start to his Everton Football Club career. However, after encouraging performances and a quartet of goals, he’s really beginning to win over the Toffees and show signs of real quality.
Duncan Ferguson has been providing the former Besiktas, Eintracht Frankfurt and Gaziantepspor striker with personal training after sessions with the first team, and some may say that’s been showing on the pitch after two headed goals against Burnley and Stoke City respectively.
The 26 year-old has actually made 6 appearances in the UEFA Champions League this season, bagging 4 goals and 2 assists before making the move to Goodison Park. Also, in the Super Lig, the £27m Turk had bagged 8 goals and 1 assist prior to making his move. Overall, the player has 84 goals in 213 career appearances.
Boasting a pass success rate of 71.9%, he’s slick on the ball, has displayed great hold-up play, wins on average 1.9 aerial duels per game and certainly rocks defenders. (Based on appearances for Everton)
He’s not short on confidence, and even during the bad start to his Everton Football Club career was quoted as saying:
“I’ll show everyone in England who Cenk Tosun is. I have a dream.”
So, do you think Cenk Tosun can fill the boots left by Romelu Lukaku or is he just a short-term fix?
The statistics and encouraging performances so far are balanced in his favour.
