West Ham have been linked with a move for Yannick Bolasie, and fans are praying the move happens… Everton fans that is.
You know things have gone badly for a big money signing when fans are praising the heavens that he’s being linked with another club, and that’s exactly what’s happening this week with Bolasie.
The tricky winger joined Everton in 2016 for a fee of around £25m, but after a slow start and a devastating knee injury he has failed to make an impression on the Goodison faithful.
West Ham are of course on the hunt for some attacking impetus this summer after a terrible injury for Manuel Lanzini, and according to the Guardian the Hammers are “among the winger’s suitors” as the Toffees look to offload him.
The 29 year-old made just eleven Premier League starts last season, and found his only goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to Manchester City.
West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for Felipe Anderson, and one would have to think Bolasie is simply an alternative if the deal for the Brazilian falls through.
Either way, Everton fans are delighted with the reports they will dump several first team players this season, and they’re particularly enticed by the idea of shipping Bolasie to East London.
