Celtic are reportedly interested in signing Yannick Bolasie from Everton. According to a report by Goal, Everton are hoping to offload Bolasie soon with three clubs chasing the winger.
Bolasie turned down the chance to move to CSKA Moscow recently but he has other options on the table. Everton failed to move Bolasie on during the English transfer window so he has to move to another league before September 2.
Three clubs want Bolasie
Celtic are one of the three clubs trying to snap the DR Congo international up. The Bhoys face competition from French club Rennes and Turkish heavyweights Besiktas in this transfer tussle.
Bolasie is out of favour at Everton and will be allowed to leave. The 30-year-old spent last season on loan at Aston Villa and Anderlecht as Marco Silva brought in other options at Everton.
Currently, Bolasie is behind Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bernard, Theo Walcott and new signing Alex Iwobi in the pecking order. This makes a move likely with Celtic hoping to sign him.
Celtic have won both of their league games this season and are in the process of Champions League qualification. Bolasie could bolster their title and European credentials. Here are some fans who are excited by this rumour.
Get to Celtic mate! Take us into champ league! 💚
