Why the time is right for Everton to sell Oumar Niasse
Niasse made his switch to Goodison Park in 2016 and has had mixed fortunes until now with English football.
Despite impressing in his first season with the Toffees’ U23 side, the former Lokomotiv Moscow man found himself on two successive loan spells with Hull City and Cardiff City the following seasons. Throughout the course, he barely made his impact felt as he struggled to find his foot right.
The African striker was deprived of goals as he scored only 5 goals in more than 30 appearances in the past two seasons.
That said, Marco Silva would never work wonders with the nine-capped Senegal international.
Besides, the current Toffees squad is currently awash with attackers ranging from Brazilian Copa America winner Richarlison to the newly acquired Moise Kean, with the latter turning out to be the player to watch for in the upcoming season.
The Italian youngster completed his switch from Juventus in the final week of the transfer window, signing a five-year deal. Having already shown a glimpse of his immense talent while teaming up with Cristiano Ronaldo, the 19-year-old would not take long to hit the ground.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is another exciting prospect and the 22-year-old is currently brimming with confidence after starting for the Toffees against Crystal Palace. Besides, the Toffees can benefit highly from the experience of Turkish striker Cenk Tosun.

Now, it makes the chances bleaker for Niasse and his departure wouldn’t be consequential either.
The Toffees have had a decent start to their campaign, pulling off a stalemate against the Eagles. Going forward, there should be no room for less-competent players like Niasse.
