Tosun has been recalled by his country for their Euro 2020 qualifying double header with Albania and France despite limited opportunities with the Blues.

The striker made just two substitute appearances with Marco Silva’s side prior to the most recent international break, with one coming in the Carabao Cup.

And Gunes admits that he is wary of utilising Tosun, 28, for front line international duty due to his lack of action in the ranks at Goodison Park.

“Cenk isn’t ready. He is on the bench at Everton for quite a while,” he told Milliyet.

“This isn’t a cool situation for us. We want him to play. But unfortunately, that’s not been the case for him at the moment.

“Hopefully, he will solve his situation soon.”

Tosun, 28, joined Everton in a £27 million deal from Besiktas in January 2018, scoring nine times from 43 appearances in all competitions.
