Two Turkish sources also confirmed Khashoggi's death, stressing he was killed inside the consulate.
A security team including Saudi investigators had arrived in Istanbul Saturday to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Khashoggi as reported by Reuters. He has not been heard of since.
A Turkish official also said Saudi Arabia's envoy to Ankara had been summoned to the foreign ministry for a second time on Sunday.
Erdogan's comments were his most direct suggestion yet of potential Saudi culpability in Khashoggi's disappearance and came after other Turkish officials have said they believe that he was killed by Saudi agents inside the consulate.
"Consulate officials can't save themselves by saying, 'He left here.' And relevant authorities are obligated to provide proof of this claim", Erdogan said during a visit to Hungary.
Turkey has asked for permission to search Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, broadcaster NTV said on Monday.
In his newspaper columns, Khashoggi has been critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's policies and Riyadh's intervention in the war in Yemen. He said press coverage had been rushed and unfair to Khashoggi. UK, US, French and other Western companies sell Saudi Arabia arms and buy their oil.
He said if allegations of the Saudi journalist's murder are true, it is a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and those who violate it should leave Turkey.
A Turkish official separately told The Associated Press that authorities believe Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi Consulate, while another said it was a "high probability" that Khashoggi's body was taken away.

Turkey on Monday conveyed its expectation of "full cooperation" from Saudi Arabia in search of the missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Khashoggi is a familiar face on political talk shows on Arab satellite television networks and used to advise Prince Turki al-Faisal, former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to the United States and Britain.
Khashoggi, who has lived in self-imposed exile in the USA for the past year, vanished Tuesday while on a visit to the consulate.
"Saudi Arabia was there before the United States of America", Salman said.
Mr Erdogan was more circumspect, saying on Sunday he remained "positive" and would await the results of an investigation as Turkish authorities continue to look at camera footage and airport arrivals and departures.
The Saudi crown prince downplayed any apparent rift with the U.S. leader and said relations between the two allies remain strong. Using the Washington Post platform, Mr. Khashoggi took the risky step of publicly calling out his government's continued policy blunders from the disastrous war in Yemen, the jailing of Saudi royals and business people in the Riyadh Ritz Carlton almost a year ago, the imprisonment of Saudi activists, from women's rights defenders to poets and intellectuals, to the overreaction to Canada's tweet supporting jailed Saudi human-rights activists.

In the September 23 interview, he called Saudi Arabia's foreign policy "narrow minded", and ridiculed its crackdown on political Islam, urging the kingdom to realign its policy to partner with Turkey, a close Qatar ally. "To do otherwise would betray those who languish in prison".
Khashoggi went on to write that despite progressive promises by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, "all I see now is the recent wave of arrests", which "represents the public shaming of intellectuals and religious leaders who dare to express opinions contrary to those of my country's leadership". She told the newspaper, "I can not think such an incident is acceptable to happen in Turkey".
