According to the Daily Mail, Galatasaray are willing to put a permanent £6.8 million purchase clause in the potential loan deal for Everton flop Oumar Niasse.

The Turkish giants are thought to be keen on the Everton forward, who is expected to leave Goodison Park this summer.

He only arrived on Merseyside in January in a £13.5 million switch from Lokomotiv Moscow but the move has proved to be a poor one.

He struggled for fitness at the end of last season under Roberto Martinez and has also failed to convince new manager Ronald Koeman that he deserves a place in his squad.

The Dutchman is now ready to sell the 26-year-old and Galatasaray are prepared to offer him an escape.

According to the Daily Mail they have offered an initial £1 million loan fee, and are willing to pay £6.8 million to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

It remains to be seen whether that is a deal that the Blues are willing to accept for the Senegal international.

They seem determined to move him on, but the proposed deal would see them taking a big loss on their initial investment, something they may not be keen to do.
