Report: Everton chiefs Ancelotti and Brands to meet, will discuss international striker

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti and Director of Football Marcel Brands are set to soon hold a meeting where they will discuss the future of striker Cenk Tosun, according to a report by The Liverpool Echo.

The Turkey international has so far made just five appearances this season for the Toffees and it is likely that he will be available for transfer this month.

The 28-year-old has not exactly lived up to expectations since joining Everton from Turkish giants Besiktas in 2018.

Since then he has gone on to make 41 Premier League appearances and scored nine goals for the Toffees.

He was initially thought of as a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku at Goodison Park but failed to replicate the goal scoring heroics of the Belgian.

Everton have been struggling for form throughout this season and Ancelotti will almost definitely want to reshuffle his squad.

The major problems within the squad were also shown during the club’s FA Cup elimination at the hands of an inexperienced Liverpool team over the weekend.

If Tosun does indeed leave Goodison Park, Ancelotti will likely want to bring in a new striker.

Everton rising star Dominic Calvert-Lewin has shown good potential but is not yet at a stage where he can be relied upon to score goals on a regular basis.

Moise Kean has struggled to adapt to life in England but there is hope that Ancelotti can help to bring out the best in his fellow Italian.

Oumar Niasse is evidently surplus to requirements at Everton and will almost definitely leave the club soon.
