Turkish giants negotiate option to buy Everton star striker

The Turkish Super League side Galatasaray are currently in talks with Everton over the transfer of Oumar Niasse according to Fotomac.

The report states that the Lion’s want to loan Niasse and include an option to sign the 26-year-old at the end of the season. The Turkish outlet goes onto say that Galatasaray want a £5 million clause included in the deal.

However, Everton may be reluctant to accept having signed Niasse for £13.5 million from Lokomotiv Moscow earlier this year.

Galatasaray are expected to pay €1.5 million upfront if they agree to loan Niasse according to the Aksam newspaper.

Niasse previously played for Akhisar Belediyespor in the Turkish Super lig where he scored 15 goals in 40 appearances.

Galatasaray have been in pursuit of a replacement striker since Burak Yilmaz joined Chinese giants Beijing Guoan. The Lion’s will not be able to play European football next season due to serving a one-year UEFA ban for breaching FFP regulations.
