Everton linked young star M’Baye Niang in talks with Turkish giants over summer move

Turkish Super League giants Fenerbahce are locked in negotiations with AC Milan for M’Baye Niang.

The French star spent the second half of last season on-loan at Watford FC. The Serie A side are willing to let Niang leave for the right price.

A Source close to Fenerbahce has revealed to Turkish-Football.com that AC Milan have already turned down two of thier offers for Niang.

However, Fenerbahce have not given up hopes of signing Niang as talks are still ongoing.

The Turkish giants want to sign Niang on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy included.

Fenerbahce have set aside €3 million per season for the young star.

According to Goal, Everton Director of football, Steve Walsh travelled to Italy last month in a bid to sign Niang.

However, Calcio Mercato claims that Niang put talks with Everton on hold to wait for Arsenal to make a move.

Unfortunately for Niang it seems like the Arsenal bid never materialised.

Niang provided two assists and two goals in 16 Premier League appearances for Watford FC last season.
