Bolasie top Stoke City target

Crystal Palace winger Yannick BolasieCrystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie is a possible £3m summer signing for Stoke City as boss Tony Pulis looks to rebuild.

Pulis was reportedly in the stands to watch the highly-rated winger in his side’s 0-0 draw with Millwall on Tuesday night and is weighing up making a summer swoop.

The Potters boss is keen to add wide-men to his squad when the transfer window reopens and Bolasie has apparently caught his eye.

With Jermaine Pennant set to be allowed to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season and Matthew Etherington continuing to struggle with injury, new recruits are needed.

Bolasie, 23, has impressed at Selhurst Park since arriving from Bristol City in 2012 and has attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs, but Stoke are thought to be in the driving seat to land him if they offer in the region of £3 million in the summer.

The 23-year-old has been central to Palace’s fortunes this season alongside fellow winger Wilfried Zaha, who has already been snapped up by Premier League champions Manchester United, and would be keen to make the step up to the top flight if the Eagles fail to get promoted this season.

Bolasie will be in action on Saturday at Selhurst park as Crystal Palace face a key match against Peterborough as Ian Holloway’s men look to secure their place in the play-offs.
