Everton’s unwanted striker Oumar Niasse has broken his silence regarding his future, following claims he could be heading to Turkey.
The 26-year old Senegal international yesterday spoke to Turkish Beyaz TV and said: ”I know nothing about my future. If anything happens you’ll know.”
Beyaz TV then asked the Everton outcast about if he was aware of Galatasaray’s last minute interest, to which Niasse revealed: ”I don’t know. There are other options in England, and I think my future is there. But as I said before anything is possible.”
Niasse also said he’s expecting to leave Everton before Wednesday’s deadline, and that there’ll be no chance he will stay beyond this season with the Premier League side.
Galatasaray CEO Levent Nazifoglu also commented on club’s official club TV and said: ”Yes, we’re interested in him (Niasse). But there are other options. We have to finish the job in midfield first. Then we’ll look to other positions. Our manager wants a striker and we want a striker, too. We’ll see.”
Benjamin Moukandjo from Lorient is the other preferred option for Galatasaray, but his club aren’t looking to loan him out as they’ve made it clear they want to sell him if outright.
If Galatasaray aren’t able to sign Moukandjo, Niasse could still be option in the event the player fails to get a move in England.
