'Great move for West Brom' - Exclusive: Campbell wowed by Sky transfer reveal
West Brom may sign Everton striker Cenk Tosun in January – and it would be a “great move for all parties”, according to Kevin Campbell.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Baggies and Toffees striker is adamant that the 29-year-old is good enough to lead the lines for Sam Allardyce’s side.
Sky Sports revealed yesterday that West Brom are keen on signing the Turkey international this month.
Allardyce wants to reunite with the striker he signed from Besiktas for £27million in January 2018 while manager of Everton.
Tosun has struggled for game time at Goodison Park this season, making just six substitute appearances across all competitions.
When asked by Football Insider if the out-of-favour striker would be an asset to the Baggies this season, Campbell said: “He is not really getting a game at Everton.

“He is only coming on sparingly so this could be a great move for all parties.
“Cenk Tosun is good enough to get a regular run of games at West Brom.
“He is a Turkish international and a very good striker but Calvert-Lewin is just head and shoulders above him right now. There is no room for him at Everton.
“I think that would be a smart bit of business for Everton to do.”
Tosun has just 18 months left on his contract at Everton and is unlikely to be offered a new deal having scored just 10 goals in 57 appearances.
His most prolific season came at Besiktas in 2016/17, he scored 24 goals in 47 games.
