Merseyside to London… Crystal Palace in striker transfer talks

Crystal Palace are in talks with Everton outcast Oumar Niasse, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The 26-year-old forward only joined the Toffees from Lokomotiv Moscow over the winter for a hefty £13.5m fee after performing well in the Russian top tier.

However, his time on Merseyside has been a complete disaster, with Niasse yet to complete a full 90 minutes in the blue shirt, while his off-field antics have also attracted negative press.

But he could be offered a Premier League lifeline, with Sky Sports claiming that the Eagles are in talks regarding a move for him.

It’s understood that this switch would be a loan rather than a permanent transfer and could be tied in with Palace’s decision to accept a £25m offer from their North West rivals for Yannick Bolasie.

It remains to be seen if a potential move for Niasse effects the south London outfit’s pursuit of Liverpool’s Christian Benteke.
