Turkish outlet Fanatik claim talks are expected to occur between Galatasaray and Everton over a move for the former Hull City loanee, who has enjoyed his best season at Everton since moving to Merseyside in January 2016.
Niasse, 28, scored nine goals in 24 league and cup appearances for the Merseyside giants, who are currently without a manager following the sacking of ex-England boss Sam Allardyce.
The report claims Niasse wants to leave Goodison Park, though, after managing just six Premier League starts since the turn of the year. The signing of Cenk Tosun from Besiktas has seen Niasse fall down the pecking order.
Niasse has two years remaining on the four-and-a-half-year deal he signed when Roberto Martinez opted to pay Lokomotiv Moscow £13million for his services, a contract which the Daily Star claim is worth £55,000 a week.
Everton fans believe he should be offloaded this summer, with one fan Tweeting that he will "drive him to the airport", while others believe he should leave but can hold his head high.

Respect his hard work but he isnt the long term answer so glad he is moving on.— Darren Higgs (@dazrx8) May 29, 2018
Let him go with thanks,he can leave with his head held high. He was overpriced,misused by Martinez,ignored by Koeman and confused by the Fat Fraud.Its just a shame that his talent did not match his enthusiasm and work rate. #efc— IAN REID (@RIBBSO) May 29, 2018
heart of a lion, but we need to be ruthless and trade up with our players— Trevor P Malcolmson (@trevor_p_malco) May 29, 2018
Get a top class striker in and then we can let him go a workhorse never complains but a clear out is needed this summer ⚪️— mark blake (@moyeseyside) May 29, 2018
Couldn’t ask for a better attitude, teammate, or work ethic, but we all know he just isn’t good enough to compete at the level we want to be at. Of course, loaning him off does no good if we don’t bring in anybody better. For his sake he needs to move on as well— John (@ZHall24) May 29, 2018
