Everton agree £25m deal on Crystal Palace winger with just four assists last season

Everton have struck a £25 million deal with Crystal Palace for their star winger Yannick Bolasie according to The Sun.

The daily tabloid states that Everton previously had an £18 million offer turned down but came back with an improved offer.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is putting the money earned from John Stones £47.5 million move to Chelsea to use as he also agreed a fee to sign Swansea City’s captain Ashley Williams.

Bolasie looks set to be on the move after spending four years at the London based club. Per-the-source, the 27-year-old will be part of Everton’s squad in time for their Premier league opener against Tottenham this weekend.

Palace boss Alan Pardew has already signed a replacement for Bolasie in Andros Townsend who joined from Newcastle.

Bolasie’s output may however cause some Everton fans concern. The DR Congo international winger provided just four assists and five goals in 26 Premier League appearances.
