£13.5m Everton Ace Prepared To Join Champions League Side If Club Strikes Deal, Turkey Transfer Will Be Decided This Week

Everton striker Oumar Niasse is prepared to join Galatasaray if the two clubs reach an agreement according to the Aksam newspaper.

Per the source, Niasse has given the Lions the green light.

Talks between Galatasaray and Everton are ongoing and a final decision is expected to be made before the end of the week.

The Lions hope to convince the Toffees into releasing the Senegal international before the end of the Super Lig transfer deadline on 1 September.

Niasse has fallen down the pecking order at Everton with Cenk Tosun ahead of him and Lewin as well as Ramirez competing for playing time.

The 27-year-old has played just 13 minutes of Premier League football so far this season, making brief appearances in the Toffees first two games.

Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim is keen on signing Niasse and has made signing an additional striker a priority before the transfer window shuts.

The reigning Super Lig champions would be able to offer Niasse Champions League football this season if he were to make the move.

Everton signed Niasse on a £13.5m [BBC] move from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2016 but he is no stranger to Turkish football.

The 27-year-old previously played for current Turkish Cup and Super Cup champions Akhisar.
