Yannick Bolasie looking to learn from Crystal Palace newcomer Emmanuel Adebayor

The striker joined Crystal Palace in the January transfer window.

Yannick Bolasie has told BBC Sport he is looking to learn from January transfer window signing Emmanuel Adebayor.

The striker signed on with the Eagles last month on a deal until the end of the season, having left Tottenham Hotspur by mutual consent last September.

Alan Pardew is hoping he can add some much needed goalscoring power to his side, with them having struggled in that department this season, registering just 26 goals in 25 games this season.

And Bolasie says he is keen to learn from the striker, believing he will teach Palace’s stars how to get into better goalscoring positions.

"I am looking forward to learning from Adebayor, I believe he will guide myself and our other players into goal scoring positions," he told BBC Sport.

"When you have a proven striker like him who knows the league very well and with a remarkable scoring record then you have a dangerous asset who can hurt your opponents and grab the goals.

"Players like him are the ones I've got to look at and if I can add more goals to my game then it will only improve me and the team.”

There is no denying that Palace could do with a regular goalscorer in their side, with Connor Wickham the only striker to have registered in the Premier League so far.

However, they could also do with the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie improving their goal tallies, with those two only having managed six between them this season.

If Adebayor can help them to develop in that department, and add some goals himself, there is no denying that he will have proved a smart signing for the side.
