Don Hutchison suggests that Everton should sign Yannick Bolasie from Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.

Don Hutchison has taken to social networking site Twitter to suggest that Everton should sign Yannick Bolasie from Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.

The former Everton midfielder seems to be a huge fan of the Democratic Republic of Congo international, and has revealed that he has advised Toffees manager Roberto Martinez to recruit the 25-year-old.

Bolasie is one of the best players in the current Palace squad and has been in superb form in recent weeks.

In 33 Premier League appearances this season, the former Bristol City star has scored four goals and created 45 chances.

The former Plymouth Argyle winger has a pass accuracy of 71% and a shot accuracy of 41%, and he has won 38 headers, 89 dribbles and 41 tackles.

Bolasie is a very good player who has pace and tricks, and he would be a good addition to the Everton team.

The Merseyside outfit signed Aaron Lennon on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, and one suspects that Martinez will be looking to sign a wide-man on a permanent deal in the summer.

Much will depend on whether Palace are willing to sell Bolasie, who has been at Selhurst Park since 2012.
