Report: Aston Villa, Tottenham and West Ham make enquiries over signing Yannick Bolasie

Crystal Palace Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie is reportedly a target for Aston Villa, Tottenham and West Ham.

According to Sky Sports, Aston Villa, Tottenham and West Ham have all lodged enquiries over signing Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie.

Bolasie, 26, enjoyed a superb season with Crystal Palace last season, contributing four goals, six assists and countless dominant displays down the Eagles' left wing.

With a devastating combination of pace and power, not many wingers in the Premier League can offer what Bolasie does - and that has unsurprisingly attracted interest.

Sky Sports believe that Aston Villa, Tottenham and West Ham have all made enquiries over signing the DR Congo international, and Palace expect at least two of those teams to lodge bids in the near future.

Villa have plenty of money at their disposal having sold Christian Benteke to Liverpool on Wednesday, and adding Bolasie would certainly make them more of a threat in the final third, even if he wouldn't be a direct replacement for Benteke.

Bolasie's blistering pace would complement Jack Grealish's creativity well for Villa, and with money to spend, they would be foolish not to target Bolasie, given his Premier League displays last season.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are looking for a pacey winger who can take some of the pressure off Harry Kane in attack - and Bolasie could be that man.

Fans may rather see West Brom's Saido Berahino arrive given that he can play as a striker as well as out wide, but Bolasie would provide direct running and a threat in behind, something that neither Nacer Chadli nor Erik Lamela, who prefer to cut inside, offer.

Finally, West Ham have spent heavily already this summer, but need to bring in a winger to play in Slaven Bilic's preferred 4-2-3-1 system, and Bolasie fits the bill. Providing regular service for Diafra Sakho has to be a priority for the Hammers, and Bolasie may well be seen as the man to take West Ham's attack to the next level.

Ultimately, Palace will not want to lose their star man, and having signed Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain, it seems that Alan Pardew's men won't have to sell Bolasie - but it may depend on whether the player wants to make a move this summer.
