According to Milliyet in Turkey, the Istanbul giants' sporting director, Damien Comolli, has identified the winger as a key target and that any reservations the winger may have had about moving to the Turkish league have been eased by the advice of Cenk Tosun.
Bolasie successfully recovered from a career-threatening knee injury last December but has generally struggled to justify the reported £28m fee it took to sign him from Crystal Palace in August 2016.

Bolasie on loan? Why? I'd aim to sell him, his resalevalue will decrease very fast now, with him approaching 30. A season out of loan, "with an option to buy" is insane. They will never buy, they never do unless they get him for peanuts, which they eventually will if we decide to loan him out. Rumours are that Newcastle are interested, I'd go for that instead... or any other team that want's to buy!

I my view, Yannick was signed to compliment Lukaku, both on and off the pitch, and as such, that axis no longer exists.
He is still a quality player at his best, but the game in England is perhaps just too fast and intense for his delicate skill set, I think the Bundersliga or Ligue 1 may be more suited, not sure about the Turkish league? I doubt Everton would realize more than £17 million in the current market, but the player would be off the wage bill.

At least if true, we are slowly shipping out the Mahogany priced dead wood.
We will lose a lot in transfer outlay, but gain by reducing the wage bill.
8 Posted 14/06/2018 at 08:23:59
If this is the best offer we can expect then go for it! Although I think a lower-half Premier League team might come in for him.
9 Posted 14/06/2018 at 08:46:16
He will be shipped out because he flatters to deceive and is just not good enough.
10 Posted 14/06/2018 at 08:57:17
Imagine if we got Zaha instead (he was available for about the same price 2 years ago).

Both will be playing week in week out rather than on the bench, playing euro football. They are gambling that we will get a buyer next summer for both of them if they put up a good showing.
A straight sale would be better,they should try every avenue, but the last resort loan deals are better than having high earners not playing and skulking around.

It appears to be a loan, which is obviously not so attractive for us, but it depends how it is structured. For example an option to buy at a given price isn't very attractive to EFC, but if there was a decent sized loan fee triggered if that clause was not implemented by Fenerbahce, that would sweeten the pill.
Whether Bolasie is worth his £4m or so in wages is moot, but if Fenerbahce do want him, they can and do pay that kind of money, especially net, given the low taxes in Turkey.

RK, SW, should never have bought him in the first place.
17 Posted 14/06/2018 at 18:20:26
We paid absolute top dollar for a number of clearly under achieving individuals, including Sandro who, despite a nominal transfer fee, is reported to be on a six figure annual salary. When it comes to try and move them on, it's nigh impossible.
Even Sevilla baulked at the chance to have him back. Somewhere along the line, the club will take a massive 'hit' on all those deals, either by having to sell on at massively reduced transfer fees, or by agreeing to pay a large chunk of their salaries over the course of their contract.
It will be a number of years before we get over the legacy left behind by Koeman and Walsh.
An expensive lesson for Moshiri, who has been badly advised and let down by senior members of the Everton management team.

Good luck Yannick whether you stay or go. I hope you recover after a good preseason and its the former.

Bolasie when we might have got Zaha.
Funes Mori when we might have got Van Dijk
Keane when we might have got Maguire.
Klaassen when we might have got Lemina.
Schneiderlin when we might have got Wanyama.
Sigurdsson when we could have had a crack at Salah...
Hopefully Brands will oversee a more productive recruitment era.

No end product to his game, Lookman should have had the chances to play instead of this headless chicken.

He's not the most gifted but makes things happen.
