Everton attacker Yannick Bolasie is being linked with a deadline day move to English Championship side Middlesbrough – and some Boro fans have reacted with massive excitement to the speculation.
According to Sky Sports, Boro are attempting to complete a move to sign the 31-year-old on loan before the EFL transfer window shuts at 5pm today and they previously missed out on his signature two years ago.
The report explains that the winger is keen to complete a move to the Riverside and that talks have already taken place.
Bolasie, 31, has had a frustrating time since he moved to Merseyside back in 2016 and he’s been unable to find any consistent form, which has meant he’s already had three spells out on loan from the Toffees.
The skilful wide player looks a shadow of the player he once was at Crystal Palace and current Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti hasn’t included him in a single matchday squad so far this season, so he needs to try secure a deadline day loan move if he can.
He played 25 games last season during a loan with Portuguese top-flight club Sporting CP, scoring two goals and supplying five assists in return.
A selection of Boro supporters on social media are convinced the winger would be a top signing for them this season, as they look to try mount a promotion bid in the Championship.
Here are some Boro fans discussing Bolasie:

I’m sorry but any #Boro fan who doesn’t wanna see Bolasie and Roberts behind Assombalonga, Fletcher and Akpom are mad. I won’t sleep easy until we bring in defenders, but we’ve been the lowest score for how many seasons now? I’d snap their hand off to have Yannick. #UTB
