Crystal Palace launch bid for Everton striker Niasse

Crystal Palace have launched a bid for Everton striker Oumar Niasse.

The Sun says Palace have made a £6.5million bid for Niasse.

Eagles boss Roy Hodgson has turned to the 28-year-old Senegalese international after a loan deal for Liverpool's Dominic Solanke fell through.

Hodgson is desperate for another striker to boost his team's fight for Premier League survival.

And he believes Niasse can supply the goal power he needs while record signing Christian Benteke continues to recover from knee surgery.

Everton boss Marco Silva will not stand in the way of a player who has not started a single Premier League game this season or scored since last May.
