Everton are reportedly set to attempt selling centre-forward Oumar Niasse in the summer.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the 29-year-old is one of several players that the Merseyside club are going to try offload at the end of the season.
The report details that the Toffees will try sell the striker, as he approaches the final year of his contract.
Niasse left on loan to join Cardiff City in January after rarely featuring for Marco Silva’s team.
Everton paid £13.5million (BBC) to sign the Senegal international back in the January transfer window of 2016.
He’s managed just 39 senior appearances since he joined and scored nine goals in return, with his spell on Merseyside being a disappointing one.
Niasse has failed to score in his 12 Cardiff appearances since he joined their relegation fight in the Premier League in January and that’s why Everton should be prepared to take a hit on the £13.5million they paid for him.
The attacker has failed to live up to that price tag in front of goal and his latest loan spell has reiterated that.
He does have a decent work-rate and will put a shift in at the point of attack, but has been unable to provide the firepower Cardiff need and certainly doesn’t look a solution for Everton.
Niasse previously enjoyed success in Russia with 19 goals in 42 games for Lokomitv Moscow and should perhaps consider chasing a move to a division he can get back to becoming a regular goalscorer.
