Middlesbrough, Millwall and Blackburn are battling each other to sign Yannick Bolasie from Everton.
The transfer deadline day 2.0 has seen Everton get with another set of arrivals and exits. Joshua King has been the most popular player linked with arrival at Goodison but there is also focus on last minute exits. Yannick Bolasie is one fringe player who is attracting interest from Championship clubs and could be headed out of Everton. Middlesbrough and Blackburn Rovers are circling around the Congolese.
Sky Sports reported that Middlesbrough are attempting to sign Bolasie on loan from Everton. The Championship team has already held initial talks with the parties involved and Bolasie is also keen to move to Boro. The 31 year old has previously worked with Neil Warnock at Crystal Palace and now it seems that the 71 year old wants a reunification.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie has stated that in order to offload Bolasie, Everton will have to subsidize a large part of his wages. The Congolese earns £75,000 a week at Merseyside and Boro will simply not be in the position to cover the entire wages.
However, Middlesbrough aren’t the only Championship clubs in the running. Millwall and Blackburn Rovers also want to sign the 31 year old, as per Pete O’Rourke. Though, Bolasie’s preference is to join Neil Warnock at Boro.
Bolasie last made an appearance for Everton in 2018 and since then has largely spent time out on loan. When he arrived back from Sporting, Bolasie was excited to work under Ancelotti and try his best to fight for a place in the team.

The Italian has already communicated to Bolasie that he doesn’t feature in his plans. The 31 year old, who has remained positive despite the recent injuries that plagued his progress could finally bring his career back on track and get game time elsewhere.
Bolasie is a wonderful person who often receives undeserved hate on social media but is always graceful. It would be in his best interests to move out on loan and show the world that talent still flows through his veins.
