Galatasaray have rekindled interest in Everton striker Oumar Niasse with the view to sign him on a loan move over the winter transfer window a source close to the club revealed to

The Lions would be interested in a loan until the end of the season with the prospect of a future buyout clause option included.

Galatasaray are not currently willing to match Everton’s asking price. The Toffees want to recoup some of the £13.5 million invested in the 26-year-old striker who is currently training with the reserve side after failing to impress head coach Ronald Koeman.

The Istanbul giants pushed for a move over the summer but were unsuccessful in their attempt to sign the Senegal international.

Galatasaray are in pursuit of an additional striker as a result of Kolbeinn Sigthorsson’s injury concerns and see Niasse as a temporary fix to the problem.

Niasse is no stronger to Super Lig football having made a name for himself at Akhisar before moving to Russia and then Everton.
