Championship side Leeds United have been offered a chance to sign Premier League outfit Everton’s striker Oumar Niasse, as per Football Insider.
The Whites have been in the market to sign a player who can bolster their attacking unit for the rest of the campaign, where the Elland Road side are pushing for a return back to England’s top division.
For this purpose, as per the latest report, Leeds have been offered a chance to sign the 29-year-old Everton man in the ongoing transfer window.
The report further stated that the Whites’ hierarchy has been evaluating Niasse along with few other names and a final decision is likely to arrive very soon.
Niasse has been linked with a move away from Everton in the mid-season transfer window after failing to cement his spot in the starting XI.
The Senegal international—who is in the final year of his contract with the Blues—has only managed 181 minutes of first-team football this season.
Niasse joined Everton in the winter transfer window in 2016 when he moved from Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow for a reported fee of €17.90 million.
Since then, the Toffees striker has managed to represent his current club in just 40 matches in all competitions, scoring nine times along with providing four assists.
With Patrick Bamford missing a host of clear chances in the weekend defeat to QPR, signing Niasse as an additional option could be a wise move by Marcelo Bielsa’s men.
