Everton have agreed a fee with Besiktas to sign highly rated striker Cenk Tosun for £27m.
Tosun waved goodbye to the club's supporters following their win over Osmanlispor on 28 December and both clubs have been locked in talks subsequently, leading to today's agreement over a fee.
The 26-year-old, who has 25 caps for the Turkey national side, is due to fly to Liverpool today, from London - where he spent New Year's Eve, to finalise personalise terms ahead of the clinching his desired move to the Premier League.
Everton have beaten off interest from Newcastle, Crystal Palace and an unnamed Chinese club to get to this stage of the deal.
Tosun came up through the youth ranks at Eintracht Frankfurt, before moving to Gaziantepspor and then on to Besiktas. His goals for the latter helped them to Turkish Super Lig titles in both 2016 and 2017.
Liverpool face Everton in the FA Cup third round on Friday, 5 January, a match which is live on eir Sport 1 [kick off 7.55pm].
