Everton striker Oumar Niasse is reportedly interesting Turkish champions Galatasaray ahead of this summer's transfer window, and fans have urged the Toffees to sell the Senegalese man.

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.
