Everton, Newcastle and Stoke have indicated they are ready to meet Yannick Bolasie’s £15million asking price.
The explosive Crystal Palace winger is looking to leave Selhurst Park after two-and-a-half years at the club, and will net the Eagles a tidy profit on the player they bought for £300,000.
Bolasie is a popular figure in south London, but with his 26th birthday coming up he has been advised by those closest to him to seek a big-money move away from the Eagles.
This has seen him consult friends in football, including the likes of Chelsea’s Didier Drogba, over his future plans.
Liverpool and Tottenham are two other clubs monitoring developments but Newcastle and Everton have both made initial contact with the player’s entourage and would be happy to stump up a fee of £10million plus add-ons that could take the value of the transfer in excess of £15million
