Everton are signing Lokomotiv Moscow striker Oumar Niasse for £13.5m [Guardian]

It seems like Roberto Martinez is going to make a bid, late move in the transfer market.

Having sold Steven Naismith to Norwich earlier in the window, the Everton boss is now set to splurge £13.5 million on Lokomotiv Moscow striker Oumar Niasse.

You can hear the locals now. ‘Who?’

Niasse is a 25-year-old forward, who was voted Russia’s player of the year in 2015.

But aren’t Everton’s bigger problems at the back?

Leaving that to one side, Niasse is a man in form, having scored 12 goals and grabbing ten assists in his 21 matches for the Russian side this season.

The Guardian have reported:

Everton are poised to sign the striker Oumar Niasse from Lokomotiv Moscow after having an offer of £13.5m accepted by the Russian club.

Niasse is currently in the north-west of England and he and Everton will now attempt to agree personal terms.

The signing does look to be something of a gamble.

Niasse is a late bloomer, have coming to the fore in Senegal with local side US Ouakam in 2011.

He then moved around for a bit, scoring 15 goals and seven assist for Akhisar Belediyespor in Turkey in 2013, before he joined Lokomotiv.

Everton fans should know, however, the while Niasse is a threat in front of goal, he’s also able to draw teammates into play and act as an assist maker.
