Galatasaray willing to wait on Everton striker

Galatasaray are willing to play the waiting game during negotiations to sign Oumar Niasse.

A source close to the club has told Caught Offside’s Eren Sarigul that they are in no rush to wrap up the deal and are willing to hold out until Everton lower their demands.

Galatasaray are suspended from European football this season after breaking Financial Fair Play rules and are doing everything within their power to lower expenditure.

The source went onto reveal that Galatasaray want to negotiate a lower fee to loan Niasse this season with Everton holding out at €1.5 million.

The Liverpool Echo states that Niasse is expected to leave this summer and knows his ‘Everton days are numbered’. The 26-year-old was omitted from the squad which takes on Barnsley in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

The Senegal international is no stranger to the Turkish Super League having previously played in for the Turkish club Akhisar Belediyespor, where he scored 15 goals in 40 appearances.
