Wolves must sell Ivan Cavaleiro to fund a move for Yannick Bolasie

Everton winger Yannick Bolasie is attracting interest from Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Fenerbahce, according to the Liverpool Echo.

What’s the story?

This summer, new Everton boss Marco Silva has made clear that Ademola Lookman will be a part of his plans going forward after the youngster’s impressive loan spell in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig during the second half of last season.

The Toffees have also spent £40m on Watford man Richarlison and, as Bolasie has yet to hit top form after his year on the sidlines following a knee injury suffered in December 2016, the DR Congo international will have slipped down the pecking order at Goodison Park.

Now 29-years-old, Bolasie may feel this summer that the time is right to move on in an attempt to get the game time he needs to resurrect his career. With Leicester and Palace interested, another Premier League club who should target Bolasie are new boys Wolves.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has already made nine transfers this summer, but perhaps one position he could improve is on one of the wings in his favoured 3-4-3 formation. Earlier this summer, Wolves rejected a £12m bid for their Portuguese right-winger Ivan Cavaleiro, according to The Express and Star.

If Bolasie could find the form he was in at Crystal Palace then he would be an upgrade on Cavaleiro and as he is valued at just £16.2m by Transfermarkt it may not require a huge amount of investment. With him on one wing and Diogo Jota on the other the West Midlands side would be an attacking force to be reckoned with.

As well as blistering pace and skill, Bolasie would also bring some much-needed Premier League experience to the Molineux dressing room as Santo has brought together these signings from top clubs all around Europe.
