According to reports in Turkey cited by Talksport, Galatasaray are lining up a deal for Everton’s out-of-favour forward Oumar Niasse.

The report claims that the Turkish giants are seeking a move for Niasse though they aren’t prepared to pay the £13.5 million the Toffees shelled out to sign him from Lokomotiv Moscow.

Everton are set for an interesting summer in the transfer market following the arrival of Ronald Koeman.

Owner Farhad Moshiri has already made his plans clear in terms of funding players who will make a difference, yet there could also be some exits along the way.

While most Everton supporters will be hoping the club can hang on to coveted duo Romelu Lukaku and John Stones, not many will be too disappointed with a potental Niasse departure.

The Senegal international moved to Goodison Park during the January transfer window, yet he has since struggled to adapt to Premier League football and made a limited five appearances.

Despite being known back in his country as a talented goal scorer, the 26-year-old may have to move on this summer in order to find regular first-team opportunities even if Lukaku opts to leave Everton.

The report goes on to say that interested party Galatasaray are on the lookout for a new forward after selling top scorer Burak Yilmaz, and they’ve made Everton’s Niasse their number one transfer target.
