Reports say Fenerbahçe are ready to offer €2m to loan Oumar Niasse from Everton for the rest of the season.
Despite Everton accepting a £10m bid from Crystal Palace, Oumar Niasse's transfer to the Eagles never materialised on deadline day, with claims that agent's fees stopped the Senegalese's move to Selhurst Park.
This has signalled interest from Fenerbahçe, according to claims in the Turkish media. The Istanbul club have until Friday to agree a deal with Everton, before their transfer window closes, and negotiations are reported to be ongoing.
Niasse has continuously been overlooked by Ronald Koeman, ever since the Dutchman arrived at Goodison Park last summer. He's yet to play a game under Koeman, and last season was sent out on loan to Hull City.
After accepting Crystal Palace's offer for Niasse, Everton might not be happy with a €2m loan bid from Fenerbahçe, but if they want to offload the forward at least until next summer, this might be their only option.

Put the lad in the squad and give him a chance.
I doubt our manager will, so take the £2 million.

I would keep hold until January with the lack of strikers we have and give the guy a run out from the bench.
A couple of injuries in attack and we are goosed.

But we have one striker at the club besides him. You couldn't just ignore him.

You'd think that it would be such a good career move for Niasse to finally get some playing time at Palace that he'd be willing to pay the agent's fees, or for the agent to waive part of it or somehow work something out. But instead he is left stranded. How is this serving Oumar at all?
Wouldn't he be better off without an agent at all?

If a club's window is open they should be able to do business with any club, or unify the windows.
24 Posted 05/09/2017 at 07:43:07
Personally I would give him a chance as we have limited strikers, but there is no way Koeman would play him. He would rather put Robles up front than have Niasse back in the team.

Koeman has a brainstorm: "I will chuck my only senior striker on. 88 mins, Super Oumar gets on the end of a wicked Sigurdsson cross and bangs in the winner. An Everton career is born.
And they all lived happily ever after.

Also, would a better song for Niasse not be to adapt John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance"?
Or maybe ask Bob Dylan to rework his Hurricane song?
Yes, here's the story of Oumar Niasse,
The man that Koeman came to blame
For somethin' that he never done.
Not given a locker, but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world...

When people talk about spending £150m or so this summer, that figure does not include agent fees, or the other hidden costs. I reckon we could add (or subtract depending on whether the agent fees are included in the transfer fee) £25m to £50m as to what we have spent on agents in both purchases and sales, and in failed purchases and sales.
Tapping up players costs money. If it's true we tried to sign Jimenez on deadline day, you can rest assured we set a team of agents to work to sound him and the club out and to get a deal in place. Even though it never happened, they will still want paying.

I don't know what contract Niasse has entered into with his agent, presumably the same agent would have been handsomely recompensed for the £13m move to Everton. If he is bound to a contract he may not be able to give him his marching orders over the failed Palace move.
Strange that we include Niasse in Premier League registration squad but not in the Europa Cup squad.

There are players and fans in the Super Lig who would hang him out to dry, if he carries on with his customary shenanigans, I'm sure.
