Everton edging towards £30m deal for Crystal Palace winger Bolasie

Everton are closing in on Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie, according to reports.

Sky Sports is of the belief that the Toffees will spend £30million on the DR Congo international who will become the Merseyside club's most expensive player in their history.

Everton and Palace have agreed a deal for the 27-year-old winger whose arrival at Goodison Park will surpass the £28m spent on Romelu Lukaku two years ago.

Bolasie has reluctantly been granted permission to leave Selhurst Park having first arrived in South London from Bristol City in 2012.

Alan Pardew is a fan of the attacking ace but reportedly cannot turn down the money Ronald Foeman's Everton have offered.
