Galatasaray are currently locked in negotiations with both Everton and Oumar Niasse as the Turkish giants look to bolster their attacking options.

According to Fotomac, Galatasaray want to include an option to buy Niasse in the deal with Everton. The report states that the Lion’s want a £5 million clause however, The Toffees may be reluctant to accept having signed Niasse for £13.5 million in January.

Galatasaray are expected to pay €1.5 million upfront if they agree to loan Niasse according to the Aksam newspaper.


The Istanbul giants have been in pursuit of a replacement striker since Burak Yilmaz joined Chinese giants Beijing Guoan. Galatasaray will not be able to play European football next season due to serving a one-year UEFA ban for breaching FFP regulations.

Niasse previously played for Akhisar Belediyespor in the Turkish Super lig where he scored 15 goals in 40 appearances.
