Newcastle United and Everton are both ready to bid £15 million for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
Bolasie has been one of the Premier League's standout players this season and Newcastle and Everton both feel he would enhance the attacking threat of their respective sides considerably.
As a result, they are reported to have already opened dialogue with the Eagles over the 25-year-old, with both expected to lodge formal bids in the summer.
The Mirror suggest that Palace will be persuaded to sell should they receive an offer of around £15 million, but recent quotes from Alan Pardew seem to dispute this.
Pardew has already expressed a desire to keep hold of Bolasie over the coming months, as he is key to his side, and has slapped a huge price tag on him.
“I’ll sell Yannick, if someone wants to give me £40m to £60m, somewhere in there, that would be good,” Pardew said to the Guardian last week. “I’ll take it and we’ll build the team around that money. Every player has a price, of course. All these players here are undervalued, in my opinion."
This valuation does seem hyperbolic, but it remains to be seen whether Palace will be convinced to sell for only £15 million.
The London club have made big strides forward since Pardew has taken over and it would be a huge blow for them to lose such an integral star, with positivity around Selhurst Park continuing to grow.
