Tosun in Tapping-Up Tale?

Former Besiktas forward Cenk Tosun has confirmed that he was approached by Besiktas director Ali Naibi in an attempt to get the Turkish international to point Davy Klaassen towards a move to the club. Turkish newspaper Sabah quoted Tosun, saying:

“Beskitas director Ali Naibi called me and asked ‘would Klaassen come to Turkey’ I spoke with him afterwards, but he said he doesn’t want to come to Turkey and the case is closed.”

This should also end the rumours linking Klaassen with a loan move to Besiktas after he allegedly rejected an approach to move to Turkey despite seeking a move away from Goodison. In Everton’s poor campaign in the 2017/18 season, Klaassen dailed to capture the form he showed as Ajax captain and mixed with injuries, the midfielder was limited to 13 appearances for the Toffees. Despite being constantly dismissed by Sam Allardyce towards the end of the season, Davy has demonstrated an excellent attitude during his time at Goodison in an attempt to prove himself to the three managers he has worked under at Everton but it seems as though his time may be over in royal blue.

If it is true that Klaassen has been shown the door by Marcel Brands and Marco Silva, the deal will have to be rapped up fairly promptly with the end of the transfer window fast approaching.
