With the winter transfer window just a weekend away, the rumour mill is turning at a vicious pace.
One rumour that has picked up speed over the last few days has Everton fans all excited with Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun being linked with the Merseyside outfit.
While neither Everton nor Besiktas have released any statement with regard to the transfer, social media platforms suggest otherwise.
In an unprecedented move, Super Lig leaders and Besiktas’ city rivals Istanbul Basaksehir have jumped on the bandwagon and added to the circulating rumours with a controversial tweet.
Basaksehir, in the tweet , thanked the Toffees for taking Tosun off their rivals hand accompanying it with a video of the striker’s goals all but suggesting the transfer is done.
Since the deal hasn’t been officially confirmed, whether the tweet is an attempt to destabilise their rivals or a display of mutual respect for the Turkish international remains to be seen.
