Bought by Everton to bolster their attack back in 2016, Oumar Niasse hasn’t exactly been a success in the Premier League.

Scoring just 12 goals in 61 appearances in England’s top tier, the Senegalese forward has split his time between Goodison Park and loans to Hull City and Cardiff, where he currently is until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old appears to have had enough of the Premier League, and is now hoping to secure a move abroad in the next transfer window, as was first reported by Aksam on Saturday, who claimed he felt a move to Besiktas would help him rediscover his ‘mojo’.

This is echoed on Tuesday by Stades in his home country, relayed by Wiwsport, who claim Niasse wants to ‘quickly settle down in Turkey’, with Besiktas his preferred destination.

Bought for £16m in the first place, it seems unlikely Everton will get most of that back, especially since the forward has yet to find the back of the net for Cardiff this season, despite featuring 12 times in all competitions under Neil Warnock.

Since Marco Silva doesn’t appear to need him either, a move is everyone’s best option, and if Besiktas come forward (which Aksam believe they are thinking of doing), he’ll jump at the chance.
