Everton could reportedly offload the struggling duo.
The Echo have reported that Everton Director of Football Marcel Brands is willing to sell the struggling pair this month.
And Niasse, a £13.5 million signing under Roberto Martinez three years ago [Telegraph], has only managed 10 minutes of league football since September after being told indirectly that he has no future under Marco Silva.
Unsurprisingly, The Echo claims that the Merseyside outift and Brands himself are 'open' to offloading the two strugglers.
If true, it's definitely good news for Everton; not only because whatever they recoup from potential sales could fund new signings, but because if Brands sells two strikers, the assumption would have to be that the Dutch director intends to sign at least one recognised centre-forward to compete with Richarlison up front.
Silva's side, who host Bournemouth today, are 11th in the Premier League table.
