According to reports from Mirror Football, Everton’s new Director of Football Marcel Brands is aiming to offload up to twelve players, fearing manager Marco Silva has inherited too large a squad from Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.
And while it’s unclear who will definitely be heading out of Goodison Park this summer, former Crystal Palace man Yannick Bolasie is one of the names speculated by Mirror Football’s David Maddock.
Bolasie – who Transfermarkt value at £16.2million – and Wilfried Zaha provided the potent attack that helped keep the Eagles in the top flight after their promotion in summer 2013 and secure a tenth-placed finish during the 2014/15 season.
After leaving in a big-money deal two summers ago, the Congo international’s Everton spell has been thwarted with injury problems, limiting him to just 29 Premier League appearances during the last two seasons.
In that time, Palace have managed to replace Bolasie’s influence with the similar services of Andros Townsend, a tricky and dynamic winger of likewise unpredictability.
But, Eagles fans, should Roy Hodgson attempt to bring the 29-year-old forward back to Selhurst Park this summer? Let us know by voting below…
