  • Everton manager Sam Allardyce wants to bring another forward player to Goodison Park

Sam Allardyce says that Cenk Tosun is "one of many" strikers he is chasing because Everton desperately need to improve their goalscoring.

Cameroon global Ekambi has scored nine goals in 18 Ligue 1 appearances and his form has caught the eye of the Everton scouts.

Reports from Turkey say a deal is expected to be completed by Tuesday and Sky Sports News understands the fee will make Tosun the most expensive Turkish worldwide to leave the Super Lig.

The Goodison Park outfit have been searching for a striker since the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United last summer.

"(Dominic) Calvert-Lewin is battling away.

The Everton manager is keen on a £20m deal to sign the forward when the January transfer window opens next week.

Slidell, Louisiana man arrested in 'Nigerian Prince' money scam
In what has been described as a "complicated case", the police said Neu wires funds to his alleged co-conspirators in Nigeria. Police say their investigation continues as numerous leads have led to people who live outside the country.

Asked about the club's interest in the 26-year-old, Allardyce said: "Him and many others". "There's obviously an interest because we're actively looking for a frontman but whether we are the ones to complete that deal or not I don't know".

Allardyce, whose side face Bournemouth on Saturday, hopes to have midfielder Ross Barkley back from injury soon, while Wayne Rooney has recovered from a bout of illness.

'We can't cloud the fact that we've got more penalties than anyone else which has contributed to a few points but that won't always happen so we need to strengthen.

Everton have gone seven games unbeaten since Allardyce took charge, but have only scored 24 league goals this season, which is a lower total than any other team in the top 10 in the table apart from Burnley.

"We're consistently defending well, but on the opposite, we're not attacking very well in possession", said Allardyce.

"Sandro Ramirez hasn't picked up the pace of the Premier League, and hasn't been able to show what he showed in Spain. I think he has got a bright future but I don't think we can rely on him at the moment". I'd like him two weeks ago.
