Everton should reject offers for Niasse as he still has a role to play

Galatasaray are considering a move for Everton striker Oumar Niasse before the Turkish transfer deadline on September 1, according to Fanatik.

What’s the word?

The 28-year-old has had an eventful two-year spell at Goodison Park but he still remains on the fringes of the team.

At one point under former manager Ronald Koeman, Niasse did not even have a locker in the dressing room.

However, his determination has won over plenty of Everton fans and he has since had more game time.

According to Fanatik, Galatasaray are weighing up a move for Niasse, but only if a deal for their first option Anthony Modeste does not come through.

How should Everton approach this?

Niasse has not yet started a game for Marco Silva this season and he only has nine goals from 34 outings, but he is an impact player.

The Senegal international has scored some important goals for the Merseyside outfit in recent history.

To have a hard-working attacking player ready to call upon in difficult moments is a necessity.

Niasse provides that for Everton, so if they can keep hold of the striker then it will be beneficial for them.

If the striker has a desire to play more regularly then it may be tough for Everton to convince him to stay, but they should certainly not be attempting to offload him.
