Everton flop Cenk Tosun could reportedly be set for a return to Besiktas this summer.
Liverpool Echo via TMW claims the 26-year-old yearns for his old club less than two months after moving to England.
Tosun cost Everton £27million when he left Turkey in January, signing a four-and-a-half year deal in the process.
He arrived at Goodison Park with a big reputation, having score 64 goals in 142 appearances for current Super Lig champions Besiktas.
Everton were in dire need of goals of their own at the time, giving Sam Allardyce an excuse to splash the cash.
But Tosun has made just two appearances since arriving on Merseyside, failing to hit the target in either of his appearances.
And he may now be set to make an extraordinary U-turn, although it’s not made clear whether the move would be a loan or a permanent switch.
Meanwhile, Allardyce has revealed loan signing Eliaquim Mangala will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his injured knee.
The defender picked up the problem on his Toffees debut after joining from Manchester City, with Allardyce explaining: “His injury is going to be a bit more length-wise than first thought. I think they’ve reassessed the scans and seen there’s a little bit more damage than first expected.
“I think it’s highly unlikely we’ll see him again this season but City as a football club want us to rehabilitate him so we will do that.”
