Yannick Bolasie has an uncertain future at Everton after struggling for form and playing time since his 2016-move from Crystal Palace. The 29-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Goodison Park and might have to find himself a new club over the summer as opportunities appear slim under Marco Silva.

Bolasie has made 32 appearances in all competitions for the Blues, scoring and creating six goals. He’s been loaned out twice this season, joining Anderlecht in January after failing at Aston Villa, but he’s been in better form in Belgium – four goals and two assists in ten games.

The DR Congo international has two years remaining on his deal with the Toffees, but it’s hard to see him staying past the summer. He won’t come cheap for other clubs, however. Everton reportedly wanted £20m for the wide-man who currently earns £3.9m-a-year/£75k-per-week. They paid close to £25m to sign Bolasie in 2016 and don’t want to take a financial hit.

He should have plenty of interest at the end of the season, but his asking price and salary demands might be a stumbling block. Championship clubs will be price out of a move, as will Premier League clubs with limited resources. The 29-year-old has been in better form at Anderlecht, but he has little resale value given his advancing age so clubs may not consider him worth the money.
