Everton have slapped a £8 million price tag on their out-of-favour striker Oumar Niasse.
The Merseyside based club are keen to recoup the majority of the £13.5 million they spent to bringing him in from Lokomotiv Moscow last year.
According to the Daily Mail, Everton are trying to offload Niasse this summer to free up his £80,000-per-week wages from the books. Per the source, the Toffees are looking for a transfer fee in the region of £8 million.

The Mail also states that the newly promoted Premier League side Brighton are interested in the 27-year-old.
Meanwhile, Turkish outlet AMK claim that Turkish giants Fenerbahce have offered Everton a €1 million fee to sign Niasse on a season-long loan.
Fenerbahce have already agreed personal terms with the Senegal international striker. Niasse is also understood to be keen on a return to the Turkish league this summer.
The 27-year-old spent last season on loan with Hull City where he scored four goals in 17 appearances.
