According to The Athletic, Oumar Niasse ‘will leave’ Everton this summer. The 30-year-old is ‘out of contract’ in the coming months and looks unlikely to be handed a deal as he’s been out of favour under Carlo Ancelotti.
Niasse is on the periphery at Everton and has been limited to just a handful of appearances this season, so an exit from Goodison Park has been on the cards for some time.
The 30-year-old has fallen behind Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the pecking order, so Niasse doesn’t stand a chance of being handed a new deal. He earns £2.86m-a-year at Everton and hasn’t scored since May 2018, so why would the Toffees keep him?
Unfortunately, Everton won’t make back any of the £16.1m spent on Niasse four years ago, but his departure will at least save the club money in wages.
