Featuring for just 58 minutes of Premier League football this season, spread over five appearances from the bench, it’s fair to say Oumar Niasse isn’t the first name on Marco Silva’s team sheet.
The Everton forward, for whom the Toffees paid £16m back in 2016, has struggled to have the desired impact at Goodison Park, and an exit has been forever touted since about 2017.
A less than prolific loan spell at Hull didn’t exactly help, and the Senegal international has been sitting around Everton’s facilities, either waiting for a chance in the first team or for a transfer.
Well, if Wiwsport in Senegal are to be believed, Crystal Palace are the ones who could save him, as the website claims the Eagles have come forward with an offer.
The outlet reveals the bid put forward by Roy Hodgson’s side ‘isn’t inferior’ to €7m, allowing the forward to join his national teammate Cheikhou Kouyaté at Selhurst Park.
We’ll have to see if this is accepted, but with Crystal Palace struggling to get their forwards scoring this season, perhaps a breath of fresh air up front might just be what they need.
