Tosun, 27, netted five times in 14 appearances last season following his £27 million move from Besiktas last January, and began this term as boss Marco Silva’s first choice centre forward.
But despite just two goals in 18 Everton outings this campaign, and having been often relegated to the substitutes’ bench since mid-September, Tosun told Turkish publication Skorer he will not leave this month:
“I will fight more to get back the jersey. I will not go anywhere.
“Everton supporters love me very much. I love them. Instead of giving up to take the shirt, I’ll fight more.”
While Tosun may seem intent on staying and fighting for his place at Goodison Park, the ECHO reported on Saturday that Everton set an asking price of £20 million for him.
He was an unused substitute in Sunday’s 2-0 home win over Bournemouth, has not started a Toffees game since December 5 and was left out of the matchday squad altogether for festive fixtures against Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion.
Everton have reportedly been approached over possible loan deals for Tosun and fellow striker Oumar Niasse, but are said to only be entertaining permanent moves for either player.
