A report emanating from Turkey today claims that Fenerbahce are interested in signing Toffees hitman Oumar Niasse, and are preparing a January bid for the Senegal international, according to Turkish media outlet Fotomac.

The 27-year-old joined Everton form Lokomotiv Moscow in February 2016, for a fee believed to be in the region of £13.5 million, bit has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular at Goodison Park, although he has experienced somewhat of a renaissance this season, scoring six goals in eight appearances.

David Unsworth provided the striker with plenty of opportunities to prove himself, and it has to be said that he didn't disappoint, although Sam Allardyce's recent appointment as manager might very well have changed Niasse's situation on Merseyside.
