Report: Everton tell Yannick Bolasie he is surplus to requirements

(EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE) Ademola Lookman and Yannick Bolasie of Everton depart for a pre-season training camp at John Lennon Airport on July 8, 2018 inLiverpool, England.

Bolasie has failed to show Everton boss Marco Silva his worth.

The Guardian have claimed that Everton have informed winger Yannick Bolasie that he is surplus to requirements at Goodison Park after failing to reignite his previous form last season.

Bolasie, 29, has endured a frustrating two-year spell on Merseyside, after beginning his Everton career in fine form following his £25million move (BBC Sport) to Goodison Park from Crystal Palace.

He began well, linking up with Romelu Lukaku, before suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in November 2016 - just three months after he signed - that would keep him sidelined until December 2017.

 

Since returning, Bolasie has 16 Premier League appearances but the DR Congo international scored just one goal under Sam Allardyce and failed to create any other strikes - his assists being a huge part of why Everton first signed him.

With Bolasie yet to show that he can return to his £25milion-rated self, it is believed that Silva has informed the winger that he is surplus to requirements at Goodison Park this summer.

That is after the club have completed a £50million move for Richarlison, while Silva has declared that Ademola Lookman will remain with The Toffees despite interest from his loan side RB Leipzig. Everton also have Theo Walcott and Nikola Vlasic.

Bolasie has three years remaining on his £75,000-a-week contract (Daily Star), but could be tempted with a return to Crystal Palace said to be on the cards.
