Newcastle United are said to be interested in signing Oumar Niasse from Everton.

According to a report in TeamTalk, Newcastle United are keen on Everton forward Oumar Niasse, but surely they can only see him as a short-term option.

Niasse has fallen out of favour at Everton since Sam Allardyce took charge, despite often being credited for his attitude and work-rate.

Niasse forced his way back into contention at Everton, after being written off by Ronald Koeman, but it appears that he could still be set to depart Goodison Park this month.

Newcastle are touted as potential suitors, but the move should only be viewed as a short-term measure.

Niasse may represent an upgrade on Newcastle’s current striking options, but there is no way Rafael Benitez should be building his strike force around the 27-year-old for the years ahead.

Niasse has proven that he has the ability to score in the Premier League, but he doesn’t posses enough technical quality to be a regular starter in England’s top tier.

Newcastle should never feel satisfied with simply staying afloat in the Premier League, and they will surely have a desire to start pushing up the division, once they consolidate themselves as a top flight club again.

Niasse, therefore, could prove a good addition for six months, as they look to escape the drop, but Newcastle would be very unwise to spend significant money on the Senegalese international this month.
