Bolasie in the frame?

 Comments (11)  jump
The first of the usual dubious Sunday tabloid transfer stories suggests that Everton are after Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie.

The pacey winger is entering the last year of his contract and could be available for £3m this summer.

Had a blinder against us but apparently he's crap mostly.

The only winger I want us to be after is Ivan Perisic of Croatia on a permanent, and if we can get Cristian Tello on a loan for a year too!

Honest question:

How many times have you seen Perisic play!

I'm guessing no more than twice.

It's embarrassing. Clubs scout players for 6 months, but a decent 90 minutes in a World Cup and all of a sudden they're the latest 'hot property'.

I’ve watched Bolasie in parts last season an he looked quite lively!

He took us to the cleaners an looked equally dangerous v the Shite. He’s quick and strong so who knows!

Again like I’ve said with most other players linked with us, let Bobby choose our targets and hope they turn out to do well.

Honest answer Phil is twice, but without proclaiming to be any sort of expert, do believe with his style of play he could fit in well with Everton!

I suppose with every signing there is a risk, after all said and done, even loan players who have played a blinder, can fail after signing. Remember Terry Curran?

Only time will tell, and obviously price too, but I do trust Roberto to make the right choices. In the meantime, we are all entitled to an opinion, and an aspiration to make our beloved club better!

Fair play, Derek.

No world beater but decent value if the £3m price tag is true which it almost certainly is not. Someone like bolasie is probably better suited to a team like the RS who mainly counter attack whereas we seem to prioritise posession.

He’s decent, Bolasie – quick and tricky... but I think we should just keep an eye on him another season and see how he gets on second time round, see if he does just as well and if he is or isn’t a flash in the pan at Prem level.

I’d love us to sign Perisic but I can’t see us spending £20m+ on Rom possibly and then £8m on him as well as bringing in 4 or 5 other players, even if 3 or 4 of them could possibly be loan deals, as they still cost as well?!?

I work with a Palace season ticket holder who said he's tricky but flatters to deceive most of the time. I think he got 0 goals and 0 assists last year and he wouldn't be that bothered if he left!

Sounds like I'll be having the same conversation with him about Bily if Palace sign him!

Bolasie is shite. He shows flashes of pace and guile, but for the most part he's just that, a bit of occasional pace & guile. The rest of the time he's just another player who can run fast and have a good game once in a while.

It's typical for a player who has one good game against us to be linked and people jump on the bandwagon.

As for Perisic – he's another one who nobody knew anything about (see Enner Valencia) and just because the papers talk him up, all of a sudden he'd really fit in well at Everton. Why? He looks alright, and scored a good goal, but apart from that what does anyone know about him? I don't even know who he plays for without looking him up, and I know everything about football! (that's a joke).

If these players are so good, why are we only suddenly linked with them when there's a World Cup on? Errr......cos they're on the telly!

I don’t think he’s any better than what we have, personally.
