According to Fanatik, the Super Lig club are keen to conclude a deal for the Senegalese striker now that they have secured Alexander Sorloth on a two-year loan deal from Crystal Palace.
The report does not specify whether Trabzonspor are aiming for another loan arrangement of the kind seemingly favoured by Turkish clubs but it suggests a deal is close.
Chairman Ahmet Ağaoğlu'nun was quoted as saying, "We want to finish the transfer of the two striker until the start of the league."
Niasse, who arrived amid much optimism in January 2016 as one of Roberto Martinez's last acquisitions but has failed to live up to expectations, has a year remaining on his current contract at Goodison Park.
He has had spells on loan at Hull City under Marco Silva and, last season, Cardiff City where he failed to score as the Welsh club were demoted back to the Championship.
Update Fanatik are now reporting that Niasse has told Everton he wants to leave Goodison for Trabzonspor and that the move is "very close".

In any event it would be nice to see him fixed up elsewhere (anywhere else).

Who can blame them, why buy players, when you can keep loaning every season.
I can guarantee we will continue to loan to Turkish teams for a small loan fee, shame we did not follow suit when we paid £27 million for Tosun.

Mr. Brands, please find somewhere for McCarthy and Besic.

Best of luck Oumar, don't hurry back if things don't work out too well!

Ideally a fee would be nice, £5m and he's anyones.

I thought he was treated terribly to be honest. He always gave his all.
I wish the guy well. I hope he finds his level and excels.

Koeman FINALLY subbed Niasse in during a home league cup game v Sunderland when we were winning 2-0 with goals by Calvert-Lewin. Tom Davies set up Niasse who controlled and finished with aplomb. Goodison erupted with joy for him.
Four days later he bettered the feat. Losing 1-0 to Bournemouth (not Southampton) he bagged a brace to win us the game.

As a footballer he's a very limited player. A poor buy. Uncoordinated. He even looked clumsy sitting on the bench.
Niasse to see the back of you...

His contract runs out in the summer, so a loan is effectively a free transfer, or indeed the value of the loan.
24 Posted 07/08/2019 at 09:33:04
I had serious concerns about the direction of the club with him playing and Fat Sam turning up.
Thankfully both to be a footnote in our history. Hopefully a minor note, a bit like the relative you don't talk about

Turkish league top scorers .
If we are going to gamble on players from poor-league type scenarios, make it a loan or 2m max, with add ons for their accomplishments. Or just don't bother with those leagues.
26 Posted 07/08/2019 at 10:07:38
Glad to get rid though (if/once it happens).
MaCarthy, Niasse, Bolasie and possibly Besic all off the books would be a very decent window indeed.
Mirallas still a question mark but would hope another loan at a minimum would be possible.

Stirred up the oppositions defence whenever he was called upon. He might not be a Ronaldo but he deserved better on here.
So who's the next whipping boy?

Traveling down the untraveled road - I honestly didn't know that.
I know nothing of it, but if there's truth in the allegations, I agree.
He always smiles. Doesn't seem to have it in him to do something so terrible. But, if he did, man alive, that's a complete 180 perception wise for me.
