Liverpool, Spurs and West Ham set for summer standoff over Crystal Palace talisman

According to reports from the Brentwood Gazette, West Ham United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are battling it out to sign Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie during the summer transfer window.

The Congo international has bagged eight goals and eight assists in his last 55 league outings for the South London club and is seen as a key member of their starting Xi, featuring in all but one of their nine Premier League wins so far this season.

But the Eagles haven’t picked up three points in the Premier League since December, a winless run that has seen them plummet to 16th place, and that appears to have generated interest in the 26-year-old from some of Palace’s top-flight rivals.

Indeed, the Brentwood Gazette claim Alan Pardew’s side have received three enquiries regarding the powerful winger, believed to be from Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham. But with three years remaining on his Selhurst Park contract, Palace certainly won’t be letting their talismanic attacker leave on the cheap.
