Yannick Bolasie is expected to leave Everton after the Africa Cup of Nations this summer after falling out of favour at Goodison Park, but his lofty wages and asking price previously threatened to put the kibosh on a deal. However, Everton have lowered their demands for Bolasie which has led to interest coming from Turkey.

According to Nizaar Kinsella of Goal, Galatasaray, Besiktas and Trabzonspor are interested in the £75k-per-week winger and could sign him for £18m less than Everton paid in 2016. Bolasie has gone on to make 32 appearances in all competitions since joining from Crystal Palace, with injuries and poor form blighting his time on Merseyside.

The DR Congo international was loaned away from Everton last summer after falling down the pecking order while injured, but he underperformed at Aston Villa (August 25, 2018 – January 21, 2019) before impressing at RSC Anderlecht (January 31, 2019 – June 30, 2019). If a club is willing to pay £7m and match his £75k-per-week wages, they could land the Everton man this summer.

Goal stated that none of the three Super Lig sides have made an official approach to Everton for Bolasie, but he was expected to move to Turkey after the Africa Cup of Nations finishes in July.
