Everton has confirmed the signing of Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun for £27m after the deal was confirmed at half-time of their FA cup third round tie against city rivals Liverpool.
The club announced the deal after the Turkey international agreed a four-and-a-half-year contract.
The deal had been delayed as Tosun’s previous club Besiktas held out for more than the £25m Everton thought would be enough to seal the transfer.
Tosun has helped the Turkish side reach the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will meet Bayern Munich.
He scored 20 league goals last season as Besiktas retained their Super Lig crown, and has scored eight league goals and four in the Champions League so far this season.
