There is news today that Newcastle are interested in 25 year-old Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, who was born in Lyon, France.
Yannick Bolasie – Newcastle interested?
And there seems to be number of clubs interested in the player who joined Palace in the summer of 2012 and has played 78 times for the London club, but with only three goals.
Yannick has previously played for Plymouth Argyle and Bristol City and has 3 caps for the Democratic Republic of Congo, and is said to be worth around £2M – and that’s the sort of low fee that Newcastle are willing to pay for their players these days.
Newcastle need to recruit some wingers this summer since it‘s likely that Jonas Gutierrez, Sylvain Marveaux, Gabby Obertan and Ben Arfa will all be leaving the club.
However, Bolasie is said to be a crowd favorite at Selhurst Park and new Palace manager Tony Pulis will want to keep his best players at the club this summer.
The reports are that Newcastle are considering a bid in the region of £2 – and yes – you guessed it – that figure will fall short of Palace’s own valuation of their player.
And so it goes on ……
