Everton striker Cenk Tosun is set to miss the club’s forthcoming trip to Kenya and the start of pre-season training after he picked up a knee injury – but the striker does not need an operation.
He sustained the injury while on international duty for Turkey in a game against Greece last week, and some reports suggested the 27-year-old had suffered cruciate ligament damage that could have left him sidelined for several months.
Thankfully, the £27m hitmandoes not require an operation, but is set to miss the beginning of the summer schedule due to the injury.
Tosun will be among the players returning to Finch Farm for the start of pre-season training on Monday, July 1 but he will step-up his rehabilitation and so is certain to miss Everton’s trip to Kenya at the end of that week.
Although he will miss the Blues’ trip to Kenya where the team will face Kariobangi Sharks FC, it is hoped he will be fit to play some part in the team’s warm-up games before the beginning of the new campaign.
