Everton news round-up: Bolasie bid, Dragovic alert and Mirallas future

All the latest news and gossip from Premier League side Everton.

Bolasie wanted

A bid has reportedly been tabled for Everton winger Yannick Bolasie. That is according to news in Turkey, where Fenerbahce have been linked with a move for the player. They have recently appointed Damien Comolli as their new sporting director and he has identified the Everton winger as a potential target – according to Milliyet.

Turkish Football however seem to disagree. They suggest Bolasie is simply another name on a long list of potential targets for Fenerbahce this summer as they attempt a squad overhaul.

Bolasie has struggled to rediscover his best form since recovering from a serious knee injury.

Dragovic a target?

Everton are reportedly considering a move for former Leicester City loanee Aleksandar Dragovic this summer. The Austrian spent last season on loan at the King Power Stadium, eventually coming good for the Foxes.

The Leicester Mercury state that Claude Puel’s side have a £15 million buyout clause in the loan deal, but are dawdling over a move.

That has alerted Everton to the situation – along with West Ham and Brighton. All three may now try and lure the 27-year-old away from Bayer Leverkusen themselves.

Mirallas future

Kevin Mirallas’ future at Everton will soon be known, as he will hold talks with the club management this week. The Belgian spent the second half of last season on loan at Olympiakos, where he struggled and failed to make the Belgium squad for this summer’s World Cup.

It is understood, as reported by the Liverpool Echo, that Mirallas will be told he can leave the club this summer.

Everton are trying to cut their squad size and wage bill, which getting rid of Mirallas would do on both counts.
