Everton's pursuit of Cenk Tosun is in the balance after his club Besiktas raised their asking price for the striker.

The Merseyside outfit sold Romelu Lukaku over the summer and have struggled recently to score this season with their last two games ending 0-0.

"Obviously, we need a bigger goal-scoring threat than we have at the moment and that may help us in so many ways to achieve better results".

And when asked on Friday about being linked with the 26-year-old Turkey worldwide, Allardyce said, "Him and many others, because we need a frontman if we can find one".

Everton officials were in in Turkey over the weekend in an attempt to finalise a deal to bring in Tosun, Sky sources understand.

Boss Sam Allardyce revealed on Monday that a deal remains in the balance, however, and The Mirror suggests that it is now looking increasingly unlikely to go through.

"We've got more penalties than anybody else in the Premier League, which has contributed to a few points". That is because we need to strengthen that front-line.

"I can't guarantee whoever we get will score goals, but I hope he does".

"Until then we have to be a team who can only win if we get a clean sheet, for me".

Tosun has 14 goals in 24 appearances this season and was an integral part of the Besiktas squad which stormed to the top of their Champions League group, in which he scored four goals.
