Galatasaray prepare end of season bid for Niasse [divider]
Lokomotiv Moscow forward Oumar Niasse is open to an end of season Galatasaray move according to his agent Burak Sallak.
“Galatasaray is an option, Niasse is a Lokomotiv Moscow player but if the two parties agree we could see something happen at the end of May,” Sallak told TvEm.
Tottenham and Chelsea are also reported to be keeping tabs on Niasse.
“Last season Chelsea watched four of my games and Tottenham watched six of my games and they are keeping tabs on me,” Niasse was quoted as saying by Eurosport TR.
Niasse first made a name for himself working with current Galatasaray manager Hazma Hamzaoğlu while at Akhisar.
The 24-year-old had 15 goals and seven assists for Akhisar last season.
Niasse moved to Russia from Akhisar at the start of this season for €6.5 million.
The Senegalese international has struggled to find a regular first team spot at his new team and is said to be looking for a move away from the club.
The former Akhisar man has provided two assists and scored four goals in 11 games for the Russian club this season.
Galatasaray are currently in 1st place in the Süper Lig on 48 points after 21 games.
