Oumar Niasse will leave Everton in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that the 26-year-old striker does not feature in the plans of new Everton manager Ronald Koeman.

According to the report, the Senegal international will be sent out on loan by the Toffees in the summer transfer window, with Russia claimed to be his most likely destination.

As reported by The Mirror, the striker cost Everton £13.5 million when he joined the club from Russian outfit Lokomotiv Moscow in the January transfer window.

Roberto Martinez was the manager of Everton at the time, but it seems that the Spaniard’s signing is not rated by his successor (Koeman) at Goodison Park.

Niasse failed to score a single goal in five Premier League appearances for Everton last season.

The striker created three chances, had a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won two headers, one dribble and three tackles.

Everton failed to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League last season, but they will be aiming for a top-six spot in the league table during the 2016-17 campaign.
