Everton is not doing so well in the transfer market since the arrival of Marco Silva, but recent reports from Turkey suggests he could planning to sign a new winger as Yannick Bolasie is on the verge of joining Fenerbahce.
According to a recent report by Turkish publication Fanatik, it’s only a matter of time before Bolasie finalizes a season-long loan move to Fenerbahce this summer. The transfer will disappoint a lot of Everton fans as the player is highly regarded for his dribbling style and his ability to cut inside and run to the byline, but a big injury has stunted his career.
Bolasie signed for Everton from Crystal Palace in a deal took a whopping £26 million in August 2016, but the cruciate ligament injury he sustained midway through his debut season has completely interrupted his development.
And recent reports now suggest that Marco Silva will gladly send Bolasie out on loan next season in an effort to help the Congo international revive his withering career.
With that, Brendan Rodgers could do well to make a last minute move to sign Bolasie on loan for Celtic this summer as possesses a level of flair which would pose a threat to SPFL defenders next season.
There is, of course, the small problem that the Scottish manager used to sit in the hot-seat across Stanley Park at Liverpool, but the Toffees would surely be willing to overlook history to help Bolasie achieve the possible best for his future.
Whilst no deal is yet assured there is still every chance that Celtic could take out Fenerbahce and beat them to Bolasie’s signature, so the Hoops must do everything in their power to secure an audacious loan deal in the coming days.
