Fenerbahce have set their sights on out-of-favour Everton striker Oumar Niasse, according to reports in Turkey.
The Senegal international, who spent the second-half of last season on loan at Hull City, is not expected to be part of Ronald Koeman’s long-term plans at Goodison Park.
And Turkish newspaper Fanatik are reporting that Fenerbahce are currently in talks with the 27-year-old over a proposed loan move.
Everton have set Niasse’s asking price at £10m and the Turkish giants are not willing to match that valuation and have instead explored the possibility of a temporary move.
The Toffees signed Niasse from Lokomotiv Moscow for £13.5m back in January 2016 but the forward has struggled for first-team football at the Merseyside club.
Fenerbahce would be able to offer Niasse regular football and they are expected to press forward with their proposal in the coming days.
