Galatasaray continue to be linked with a January move for Everton striker Oumar Niasse. A report from Fanatik is suggesting that the Turkish club and the player, in fact, agreed a deal two months ago. Unfortunately, they ran out of time to push a deal over the line before the deadline shut.
The report goes on to suggest that both parties still want the move to go through and Niasse could join Galatasaray in the winter.
Everton have received a big injury boost from summer signing Andre Gomes. The Portuguese international arrived at the end of his recovery from a hamstring injury, but he suffered a minor setback in recovery shortly after arriving at Goodison Park.
However, as reported by the Liverpool Echo, he is now on course to make a full recovery from the injury after the international break.
Ross Barkley has aimed a thinly veiled dig Everton’s way. Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Europa League clash with Vidi he stated that he has not ‘been coached much’ in his career.
He mentioned it as he lauded the impact of his current boss Maurizio Sarri.
Barkley left Everton for just £15 million in January, joining Chelsea. He has finally found his feet at Stamford Bridge and has just been recalled to the England squad.
