Would Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Garth Crooks has suggested on BBC Sport that Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Tottenham forward made the comments following Palace’s 1-0 victory over Southampton at Selhurst Park in London in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Bolasie, who has been on the books of Palace since 2012, played well against the Saints.

Crooks was impressed with the DR Congo international’s performance and has suggested that the Eagles will struggle to keep hold of him.

“If Bolasie keeps playing like this, it's going to present Alan Pardew with a real problem - keeping hold of him,” the Englishman has written on BBC Sport.

“A player like Bolasie would be the perfect partner for Harry Kane at Spurs. Now there is an exciting proposition.”

Bolasie is one of the better players in the Premier League and has been in good form for Palace so far this season.

The 26-year-old winger has scored four goals and created 10 chances in 15 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.

The former Bristol City man has a pass accuracy of 75% and a shot accuracy of 62%, and has won eight headers, 40 dribbles and 12 tackles.
