Oumar Niasse has an uncertain future at Everton after falling down the pecking order under Marco Silva. The 29-year-old has been short of form and playing time in the last 12 months and may have to leave for more first-team football next season.
Niasse joined the Toffees from Lokomotiv Moscow for £13.5m in February 2016, signing a four-and-a-half-year deal worth £55k-per-week. The Senegalese international has gone on to make 39 appearances in all competitions, scoring nine times, but his last goal came some time ago.
Niasse last rippled the net in an Everton shirt against West Ham United on May 13, 2018. Since then, he’s earned £3.1m for the Blues, making five appearances in 2018/19 before being loaned out to Cardiff City in January. He struggled for goals with the Bluebirds too, failing to score in 13 appearances, and has entered the final year of his deal at Goodison Park.
He doesn’t appear to have a future on Merseyside, so Everton could cash in on Niasse this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing next year. The 29-year-old might be short of suitors, however, after struggling for goals over the last 12 months.
