Davy Klaassen has been urged to end his Everton nightmare and agree to move to Turkey on loan - by none other than current teammate Cenk Tosun.
AMK Spor (h/t Turkish Football) has claimed that the Netherlands international has been tipped to depart Goodison Park this month in favour of making a temporary switch to Eastern Europe with Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
Klaassen has failed to settle into life on Merseyside and hasn't been seen in the Premier League for almost four months - a lack of game time that has led to reports he will leave in the January window.
And, after apparently discussing a move to Turkey with ex-Besiktas star Tosun, the 25-year-old may end up heading to the exit door at USM Finch Farm.
Fenerbahce are keen on scooping Klaassen up on a six-month loan deal with the option to buy him outright if his stint at the Super Lig side proves to be a success.
Blues boss Sam Allardyce admitted recently that he didn't see a place for Klaassen in his starting lineup, despite Evertonians calling for the ex-Ajax captain to be given a chance to prove his worth.
Davy Klaassen is the most talented outfield player at the club and has not played a single Premier League minute since September 9th... We deserve to be relegated— ᴰᴷ (@DrobsonKanu) January 20, 2018

Toffees fans have grown aggravated over the persistent use of out-of-form stars such as Morgan Schneiderlin and wish to see £24m summer arrival Klasssen given a fair crack of the whip.
Allardyce, however, hinted that the Dutch ace could depart Everton over a lack of regular football in L4.
He told the Telegraph: “At this moment in time and from what we see, it hasn’t worked. The lad is prepared to fight for his place, but before I came and since I’ve been here, in all the other players, there seems to be more coming from them than there is from Davy.
“That’s a great shame. One, for the club and two, for the player. As a person and lad he’s a terrific young man, but at the moment, there’s not a place in the side for him.
“It’s like everyone who’s in this big squad, if you get a chance, you need to be ready. You’ll get one chance, you won’t get any more.”
