Crystal Palace bosses are regretting their decision to not sign Turkish striker Cenk Tosun in the Summer, according to Sabah Spor.
Besiktas were ready to offload the striker in the Summer, but rejected Crystal Palace’s bid. Palace offered €12 million, however, Besiktas valued Tosun at €18 million.
Since then, Tosun has regained his form in Turkey. He has impressed in the Turkish League and also in the UEFA Champions League, where Besiktas look likely to make it into the knockout stages.
This has meant other Premier League teams such as Tottenham Hotspur have begun to take an interest in the 26 year old. This has led Besiktas to put up their valuation of the striker by another €2 million.
Palace have had a difficult season so far, and have especially struggled in front of goal. Christian Benteke has had a very poor start to the season, and with little depth up front, it is easy to see how Tosun would have improved Palace.
However, Tosun is happy his move to Palace failed, feeling he is now in a much better place than he was in the Summer.
