‘Beşiktaş among suitors for Oumar Niasse’

Updated: August 5, 2016

Beşiktaş are reportedly one of several clubs interested in Everton striker Oumar Niasse, who had a brief but successful spell in Turkey for Akhisar Belediyespor before joining Lokomotiv Moscow.

Niasse has repeatedly been linked with a move back to Turkey given his stellar development in Russia but made the move to the Premier League this past January on a 13,5 million pound transfer. Niasse failed to settle however and only played a total of 152 minutes for Everton.

The Liverpool club now want to offload the 26-year old Senegalese and Sky Sports are reporting that Beşiktaş are one among several other clubs, including Fenerbahçe and Sporting CP, who are interested in acquiring the services of Niasse.

Niasse has not been given a shirt number for the upcoming 2016/17 Premier League season at Everton and he is expected to depart this summer.
