Burnley linked with surprise move for Everton striker

As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer Burnley are being linked with more and more potential transfers.

The reports in England suggested that Burnley are linked with surprise move for Everton striker Oumar Niasse.

The Senegal international joined Everton from Lokomotiv Moscow for a fee in the region of 17.9 million euros in February 2016. The 29-year-old has a valid contract with Everton until June 2020.

Niasse has played 42 times for Everton since signing from Lokomotiv Moscow, scoring 9 goals and creating 4 assists in that time.

The striker’s contract at Everton is about to expire and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with Burnley showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.

Sean Dyche is looking to shore up his attacking options and Everton’s Niasse happens to be a target.


Niasse has the talent to play many roles in attack.

According to the report, “Burnley have been linked with a move for Everton striker Oumar Niasse as the clock ticks down on deadline day. The Clarets signed Josh Brownhill from Bristol City on Thursday for a reported £9million while allowing Nahki Wells to go the other way for around £4million. Sean Dyche has said all month that he felt signings were unlikely but having captured Brownhill reports suggest the Clarets chief is looking at Niasse. Burnley are currently without Ashley Barnes through injury while Matej Vydra wants to leave the club and a deal could still be done that sees the Czech Republic international depart. That would leave Dyche with just Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez as fit senior striking options and so a loan move or Niasse could make sense.”


Burnley will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Oumar Niasse to join the club.

A move to Burnley will be ideal for the 29-year-old at this point of his career.
