Allardyce confirms Everton interest in Tosun and ´many others´

He has won 25 senior international caps for Turkey scoring eight goals for his country to date He has won 25 senior international caps for Turkey scoring eight goals for his country to date

Everton have made signing a new striker one of their main priorities after failing to replace Romelu Lukaku in the summer following his move to Manchester United and the 26-year-old is set to become Sam Allardyce's first signing.

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

Everton chief Steve Walsh is in Turkey as he aims to finalise the £25million deal for Besiktas star Cenk Tosun.

Allardyce has high hopes for England Under-20 World Cup victor Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but insists that the youngster needs time to develop.

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

"Him and many others", he said when asked if he is interested in the Turkey global.

This one could certainly end up going down to the wire for the Toffees and they need a front man in very soon if they are to push any higher than 8th.

Raiders to pursue Jon Gruden
He's making $6.5 million annually to talk about football, and not have the insane stress that comes with being an NFL head coach. According to the ESPN report, the Raiders' offer to Gruden could include an ownership stake in the team.

"We've got more penalties than anybody else in the Premier League, which has contributed to a few points".

"Sandro Ramirez hasn't picked up the pace of the Premier League, and hasn't been able to show what he showed in Spain".

Allardyce rescued Everton from a relegation battle since he arrived at Goodison Park last month and has led the side up to ninth in the league standings.

"It's in the wind", Allardyce...

"I need more goals in the side than we have at the moment if we are just to maintain our position", he said.

Wayne Rooney is fit to return to action today after missing the goalless draws with Chelsea and West Brom through illness over Christmas. I think they are defending superbly well now, but in transition, they can't turn the ball into good passing opportunities and get at the opposition and create more chances. I'd like him two weeks ago.
