It has not quite happened for Yannick Bolasie since the attacker’s move to Everton.
Indeed, the 29-year-old has only made 32 appearances for the Toffees since his transfer in the summer of 2016, and he has only managed two goals.
A serious knee injury saw Bolasie miss more than 12 months of football between December 2016 and December 2017, and he struggled to replicate his Crystal Palace form in the latter stages of the 2017-18 campaign.
Bolasie, who is valued at £16.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, ended last season with just the one goal in 17 appearances.
The attacker has a contract at Goodison Park until the summer of 2021, but it appears that the bulk of Everton supporters want him to be sold in this summer’s transfer window.
There is no question that Bolasie has pace and ability, and he is one of the most dangerous wingers in the Premier League on his day.
His move to Everton has not gone well, however, and his time with the club could well end this summer. At least that is what the club’s supporters want to happen:
He would have been a decent signing but I don’t think he will ever recapture his pre-injury form

Aimless crosses and purposeless step-overs. His greatest attribute was his pace, and he’s lost it. He plays down the left where we could start Lookman or, possibly, Lozano. This is an no-brainer, right?

Potential, injury hit him hard, hasn’t managed to get back to where he needs to be for him or Everton, think he should move on in summer. Hopefully re-coup some of the 30 million, doesn’t do the basics, only interested in his skills for instagram!

Still don’t understand why Koemann went for him instead of Zaha

He’s a nice guy & it’s a shame things haven’t worked out for him. We need to be ruthless though.

Depends on ambitions, wouldn’t get in the top six teams so if we can replace him with someone who would then why would we keep him?

Should be first out the door. Surely West Ham would take him
