NO! Tosun is NOT the man we want playing for us - probably the WORST decision our team could have made. I say no more, just disgusted with this sh^t.

Relax, Cenk Tosun is a good center forward. Nowhere near "the worst decision we could have made".

The only issue I have is his age. He will be 29 in the summer and they will surely ask for at least 15 million (I think they don't want to sell below 20 in order to recoup, but I guess it can be negociated to 15). Anyhow, those 15 million will not be recouped even if he plays well in the future. You can't sell a 32 year old striker after 3 years. But....maybe he'll make a good Palace career and it doesn't matter if he won't be sold.

He seems to have few goals for Everton, but he played few minutes. He actually scored and assisted a lot in the few minutes he got. Has also been constantly good at national team level.

10 goals and 6 assists in 2500 minutes since coming to England (I've also counted Cup matches, but they were against Premier League opponents like Watford and Leicester). That means 1 goal or setting up a goal every 150 -160 minutes on average. He also did well in the Champions League before this. I don't know why they did't use him more at Everton, I thought he was good.

He is a center forward who isn't shy to work and is one of the few who can, IN NEED, be deployed as right or left winger (the man can run- could at least, until this year, let's hope he's not too old).

Why him? turned the club down before he went to Everton.. would much prefer Ollie Watkins/ Maja / Bowen....

I would certainly NOT prefer these.

Bowen is a right winger. Sure, he-s great, I'd have him, but he's not center forward like Tosun.

Ollie Watkins has been playing center forward for just 6 months. If you think that's enough to warrant a 20-25 million transfer and rely on him in the Premier League...maybe, but I'm not sure.

Maja is good, but too young and may have ups and downs.

Itís a done deal however this will not be the only striker signing so still more to come.

I have been told itís a 6 month loan with the option to buy at £10m.

Benteke will be sold in the summer for around £15m so this would cover this transfer.

I just can't see the point in this thought we were looking for players around the age of 23

Tosun,wow how underwhelming,he didn't
Want to join us before going to Everton.

He's gonna have to hit the ground running or have the fans on he's back.

Batsman is also looking very close would be a loan then part of the Zaha deal in the summer.

So our forwards next season could look like this:

Tosun
Batshuayi
Ayew
One other

Echoing black eagle's comment above, do you have any news about fullbacks?

I've seen talk of us signing Joakim Mśhle ó do you know if there's any truth to that?

I will put my feelers out and see what I find one name I did hear mentioned was Bogle from Derby & also a Young kid from WBA but that one is unlikely all the time they could get promoted.

Will let you know as soon as I hear anything.

We will certainly not be shopping at Harrods, perhaps not even John Lewis and supporters will be underwhelmed.
I shall leave the speculation to others in the Transfer Window.

Bogle is a right-back and Ferguson has been mainly deployed at right-back at WBA.
