Clarets Considering Oumar Niasse Move
Burnley Football Club are reportedly considering a move for Everton centre forward Oumar Niasse this summer. The striker joined the Toffees in a £13.5m deal in February 2016, but failed to break into the first team under Roberto Martinez and Ronald Koeman, so he was loaned out to Hull City in the January transfer window.
The Senegal international went on to make 17 appearances for the Tigers in the second half of last season, he scored four goals as the Tigers but could not stop the club suffering relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.
Burnley have been monitoring the Niasse’s situation and could offer him a lifeline at Turf Moor next season. Sean Dyche’s side are thought to be in the market for a new frontman amid speculation that Andre Gray could depart this summer, with a number of clubs including West Ham United, Stoke City and Southampton all said to be interested.
