Fanatik claim Besiktas are interested in signing Everton forward Oumar Niasse ahead of the summer transfer window.

In the last winter transfer window Niasse was linked with the Istanbul club, and the same happened the summer before.

It’s reported former Besiktas board member Erdal Torunogullari met with Niasse during an event held in London and the Turkish giants are now considering making another move for him.

Niasse, who is currently on loan at Cardiff City, is expected to find a new club in the summer after seeing his chances limited under Marco Silva this season.

The player only played a handful of games for Everton before his loan move to the Cardiff City Stadium in January.

The 28 year old has been linked with a move to the Super Lig ever since spending the 2013/14 season with Akhisarspor.

Niasse has made 14 appearances in the Premier League this season for Everton and Cardiff City combined, but has yet to score for either club

He is under contract at Goodison Park until June 2020.
