Niasse up for sale this summer

Football Transfer Centre

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has not changed his mind on selling Oumar Niasse despite an impressive season on loan with Hull City.

The Senegal international failed to make a competitive appearance under Koeman during the first half of last season, and he was eventually loaned out to Hull City.

Under Marco Silva, Niasse managed to attain a regular spot with the Tigers – netting four goals in 17 outings, but this was not sufficient to keep them in the top flight.

According to The Liverpool Echo, Koeman has not been influenced by the player’s showing at the KCOM Stadium and will sanction his sale during this summer’s transfer window.

Niasse currently has three years left on his present deal, and the Toffees are likely to demand a significant fee for his sale with Burnley and several other top-flight clubs keen on his signature.

Everton have already strengthened their striking options for next season with Sandro Ramirez having arrived from Malaga on a £5.2m fee.
