Everton fans respond to Niasse interview

It would be fair to say that Oumar Niasse is a player who splits opinion with the Everton supporters, and that has been the case throughout his time at the club.

The 28-year-old is perhaps not the most technically gifted of footballers, but there is absolutely no doubting his commitment to the cause.

He also ended the 2017-18 campaign with nine goals in 25 appearances, with eight of those strikes coming in just 22 Premier League matches, which is a fine record when taking everything into consideration.

Niasse, who is valued at £7.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has vowed to hit the goal trail for Everton next term as he prepares to undergo his first pre-season since arriving at the Merseyside club.

There are plenty of Everton supporters who have welcomed the striker’s comments, but there are also those who feel Niasse will never be quite good enough to lead the line for a team of Everton’s ilk. Either way, it is certainly an interesting debate.
