Can This Exiled Premier League Striker Help Hull City Turn Their Season Around?

Oumar Niasse’s Premier League spell has been a disaster so far and his game time has been restricted to the Under 23 Everton side. The Senegal international, who cost Everton around 13.5 million pounds last winter, has started only twice in the Premier League till now.

He has mostly featured in the EFL Cup and the Under-23s, where he has scored an impressive seven goals in six games. He undoubtedly has the quality up front and it was just a matter of time before someone picked him up. As per Sky sources, Hull City have agreed to sign the Everton striker on loan with a clause to permanently seal the deal at the end of the season.

The Tigers have struggled hugely up front after two of their star strikers, Will Keane and Abel Hernandez, are ruled out with a long-term injury. While Mbokani held the mast momentarily in the striker’s role, the Congo international is now representing his side in the African Cup of Nations and Adama Diomande is the only option left for new boss Marco Silva.

After the first half of the Premier League, the Tigers are at the rock bottom of the Premier League table and will need something remarkable to turn the season around. And Niasse definitely seems like an option, who could help them roar back up the ladder again.

FBL-ENG-PR-EVERTON-NEWCASTLE

Although Hull have been miserable in the domestic league, they have been pretty impressive in the EFL Cup and FA Cup. In the EFL Cup, they are scheduled to face Manchester United in the semis, while in the FA Cup, they have progressed to the fourth round after beating Swansea on Saturday in Marco Silva’s first game as the boss.

Niasse’s first big move was to Turkish Super Lig side Akhisar Belediye Genclik ve Spor from Senegal club US Ouakam. After impressing in Turkey, he moved to Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow where he won the ‘Player of the Year’ honour. It was followed by a move to the Merseyside club.

Niasse is known for his dribbling skills and is pretty strong is playing incisive passes through the defence. His goals for the U-23 side has shown his finishing skills as well and he looks like a complete package.

However, things haven’t been smooth for him in England. In a sensational interview, last October, the 26-year-old claimed that he did not even have a locker at the club’s training ground. Ronald Koeman made it clear shortly after arriving at Goodison Park that Niasse was not part of his plans.

Marco Silva is likely to utilise the potential hidden in his locker and Everton’s loss could well be Hull City’s gain.
