With Everton having racked up a mixed bag of results in the Premier League so far this season with five wins, three draws and seven defeats, they have the opportunity to do some business in the upcoming January transfer window to help revitalise the squad and get them on track for the second half of the campaign.
One bit of business which could be done at Goodison Park in January could see one of their current players wave goodbye to the club before any potential new signings walk through the door.
What’s the news?
According to a recent report from Everton journalist Phil Kirkbride in the, Toffees manager Rafael Benitez is seemingly keen to offload players in January, including Cenk Tosun.

They have picked up only one point from their past five matches, which leaves them bottom of the Premier League form table.
Everton secured the signing of the Turkey centre-forward back in the 2018 January transfer window from Turkish club Besiktas in aworth a reported fee of £27m. Since then, he has had a spell at fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, as well as a temporary return to Istanbul last season.
Overall, the 30-year-old has madefor the Toffees across all competitions, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists along the way.
Even though he has been injured for a significant period this season, Tosun has onlysix minutes (in one game) in the six matches in which he has featured in Everton’s senior squad in the Premier League in 2021/22.
This suggests to us that he is not regarded fondly by Benitez, even though the Toffees have had Dominic Calvert-Lewin outfor quite a while.
Benitez must unleash Everton’s “clinical” £90k-p/w gem vs Liverpool, he’s “complete” - opinion
Everton manager Rafa Benitez must unleash Richarlison against Liverpool in their Premier League clash at Goodison Park.A hugely underwhelming 1-0 defeat to newly-promoted Brentford over the weekend dropped the Toffees down to 14th position in the Premier League table, piling the pressure on new manager Rafa Benitez as a result.
With this in mind and the manager seemingly preferring Salomon Rondon, who hasin 10 league games without scoring for Everton so far this season, it’s not surprising to hear that the Spaniard would be willing to move Tosun on from the club in January.
Moving forward, if Everton receive an offer to take him off their hands on a permanent basis for a suitable transfer fee, this could be the best option for all parties if he’s able to get regular playing time elsewhere and the Toffees are able to get his £69k-per-weekoff their books.
Getting Tosun out the door could be a significant step in Benitez revitalising Everton’s stagnant season, especially if it helps to finance a new signing next month.
