Brighton And Hove Albion Desperate To Land Everton Outcast: Where Will He Fit In Under Hughton?

Everton striker Oumar Niasse is reportedly ready to leave the Merseyside club this January. The Senegal striker who signed from Lokomotiv Moscow back in the winter window of 2016 has spent almost two years at the club but is now being considered excess baggage by the new men in charge at Everton. Niasse’s Everton career was never steady with the player never getting a spot in the team due to the presence of Romelu Lukaku and had to be loaned out.

To complicate matters further for the striker, he was never on good terms with the last manager Ronald Koeman and it seems things have not changed for him. He was sent out on loan to Hull City last season and was banished to the U23 side in October 2016. The striker has not been able to cement his first team place this season despite Everton playing some poor football earlier. He has just scored 6 goals and made 2 assists in his 14 appearances for the Merseyside team.

With the player and the club unhappy with each other, it seems that the striker could be on the move this window. Everton is reportedly ready to listen to offers for their striker and has set a 13 million pound price tag on him.

It is being reported that there are several parties keen on securing the services of the 27-year-old with three English Premier League clubs also on the list. It is believed that Niasse is going to get to pick his choice of team and his move to Crystal Palace, Brighton and Hove Albion or West Bromwich Albion will depend on where he gets the most amount of first-team action.

Newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion are enjoying life in the Premier League. One of the lesser talked about team, Brighton have gone about doing their job quietly. For a club whose aim this season certainly will be to survive the relegation, they have done well. After 22 game weeks, Brighton and Hove Albion find themselves on the 12th position in the table with 23 points registered on the table. They have played decent football so far in the league and have collected five crucial wins, no mean feat for a promoted team in the cutthroat English league.

However, the team has scored only 17 goals and it would seem they will need some major reinforcement up front this January if they wish to enjoy the riches of the Premier League next season. In such a scenario, it would be best for all parties involved in the deal for Niasse to head to Brighton and Hove Albion.
