£28m Everton winger Yannick Bolasie is set to bid farewell to the Premier League as a move to the Turkish Super Lig reportedly edges closer.
Two years after joining Everton for £28 million, Yannick Bolasie appears to be heading to Turkey on loan.
Fenerbahce have been linked with the former Crystal Palace winger throughout July and it seems that there has been a breakthrough in negotiations to take him to Istanbul.
It is reported that Fener’s sporting director Damien Comolli has been in talks with Bolasie, who Everton manager Marco Silva will allow to leave on a temporary deal. And Fanatik claims that Bolasie has now agreed terms with Fenerbahce as a move across Europe gets ever closer.
This will bring an end, at least temporarily, to a disappointing spell at Goodison Park for the 29-year-old speed-king.
Bolasie suffered a serious injury just a few weeks into his Everton career that would eventually keep him on the sidelines for over a year. He returned to action in January but failed to find his form again, scoring or assisting just one goal in 16 Premier League appearances in 2018.
And with Silva and director of football Marcel Brands working to trim the fat from Everton’s squad, £75,000-a-week Bolasie has been one of those most regularly linked with the exit.
It remains to be seen whether the Congo international still has a future on Merseyside or whether Everton have loaned him out in an attempt to increase his market value ahead of a potential sale 12 months on.
