Galatasaray have offered Everton a £1million loan fee for unwanted striker Oumar Niasse, according to a report.
The 26-year-old only arrived in January in a £13.5million move, but failed to make an impression making just seven appearances for Everton.
The Daily Mail claim that Galatasaray have moved to take the striker off Everton’s hands and want to bring Niasse to the club on a season-long loan.
Niasse is under contract at Everton until 2020, but new boss Ronald Koeman has already made his mind up about the former Lokomotiv Moscow player.
Koeman left Niasse out of Everton’s pre-season squad for their upcoming friendlies and has reportedly told the club the player he is not his plans for the upcoming season.
Niasse has not featured in any of Everton’s pre-season games so far and is listed as injured by Everton.
The attacker is Everton’s third most expensive signing in their history, but is rapidly heading towards becoming an expensive flop.
The Blues are going through wholesale changes this summer after appointing Koeman as their new manager, seeing Farhad Moshiri become the club’s majority shareholder and making Steve Walsh their new director of football.
