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.

British media reports say that Everton have agreed a 25 million pounds ($33.73 million) deal to sign Besiktas striker Tosun on a four-and-half-year contract when the transfer window opens on January 1.

Everton, who have scored 24 goals in 20 league matches this season, recorded consecutive goalless draws in their last two fixtures against Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion.

"We are interested in him and many others", Allardyce said during his press conference ahead of Everton's trip to 18-place Bournemouth.

Everton have struggled for goals this season and it has been a contributing factor to their poor form in the campaign before Allardyce's arrival in November.

He would join an Everton side that has performed well since Allardyce took the reigns but is still in need of a goalscorer in the final third.

"We have also started to struggle to create chances and score goals in recent matches. We are hoping other players will see him as an example in the future".

"It is still one of the major problems that we have".

"It'll be tough. It'll be an interesting game down there and for me, it's about my team and what I've got available to select to compete against them and like any game we play, we'll have to be 100 percent to try and get a result".

"He's built confidence levels and got them functioning as a team".

Allardyce is keen to add more goals to his side after sorting out their leaky defence.

Allardyce said: 'He's training with us.

Full-back duo Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman will remain out for the foreseeable with neither progressing how the Blues boss would like.

"It seems to be working, to speed up the recovery process, and there's a few more players who'll test it out".
