Yannick Bolasie: Currently on the sidelines with a cruciate injury

Leicester City are in the hunt to land Everton winger Yannick Bolasie, according to various reports.

The DR Congo winger is seen by Leicester as someone who could help fill the void left by Riyad Mahrez.

The 29-year-old, who joined Everton for £25million from Crystal Palace in 2016, is back to full fitness after returning from a serious knee injury – but new Everton boss Marco Silva is looking to move him out.

Everton have tied up a deal for Richarlison and they want Bolasie’s £70,000-a-week wages off the wage bill and Leicester will take them on – but only if Everton do a cut-price deal and they are understood to be willing to take less than half what they paid.

Bolasie’s former club Crystal Palace have been linked, but West Ham’s Michail Antonio is understood to be their preferred option.
