​Southampton, Newcastle target Everton winger Bolasie

Southampton and Newcastle United are among clubs interested in services of Yannick Bolasie.

Everton bought the winger from Crystal Palace for £25 in 2016 but are now willing to sell him for at least £7m.

The DR Congo international had a tough start to his career at the Goodison Park as he suffered a knee injury that kept him sidelined for four months.

Bolasie spent the first half of 2018/19 season on loan in Aston Villa before moving to Anderlecht where he is close to his best – scoring five times in eight appearances, including Thursday goal against new champions Genk.

Former club Palace is rumoured to try and bring in the 29-year-old for a season-long loan but French side Lille and Turkish giants Besiktas and Galatasaray are also interested.
