It was being reported late yesterday – well it certainly gained more traction after I’d knocked off for the day at any rate – that Yannick Bolasie was a target for Turkish side Fenerbache.

Outlet Milliyet were reporting that the club had made a loan offer to Everton for the DR Congo international and with him failing to hit the ground running after returning from injury, we were happy to entertain such a deal.

Former Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has been recently appointed as the Super Lig side’s sporting director but 29-year-old Bolasie is said to not be keen on the move – however, and quite why they’d know this, they claim he wants to speak to Cenk Tosun first before making a final decision.

Everything I’ve found on this and read suggests it’s transfer window silly season in full flow and Fenerbache aren’t in the best of financial health so the loan would simply be a stop gap with little chance of a permanent move next summer – unless we’re prepared to take a significant hit on the £26 odd million we paid Crystal Palace for him.

Maybe we see our possible benefit being Bolasie getting a full season and plenty of games under his belt again so we can capitalise on that next summer with his stock rising slightly, instead of seeing his value fall further.

Either way, fans have certainly taken to the speculation, even if it feels a little cruel given his injury problems.

  • These pleyers of ours linked with loan moves need to be moved on but sold. We need to cut our losses on values, at least we will recoup some money on the saving of overly paid wages for average players.

    • I think Bolasie has been unlucky with us to be fair. His problem is he was never worth what we paid so everyone was on to a loser from the get go.
