Yannick Bolasie is keen to leave Everton after being frozen out by Marco Silva. According to The Sun, Besiktas and Trabzonspor are both chasing Bolasie and the player is seriously considering a move to Turkey.
The European transfer window is still open so Bolasie can move abroad before September 2. Besiktas and Trabzonspor are both trying to lure him to the Turkish Super Lig – a move which appeals to the winger.
Bolasie has no future at Everton and Silva has made it clear that he is free to leave. Last season, the DR Congo international was farmed out on loan twice – firstly to Aston Villa in the Championship and then to Anderlecht in the Belgian top-flight.
The 30-year-old has a £10m release clause but there have been no takers so far. It remains unclear whether the Turkish duo are planning to sign Bolasie permanently or on loan again.
Bolasie is now at a crucial stage in his career and he needs to find a new home. He should be looking for a club that he sees himself at for the foreseeable future – not just another loan stint.
Besiktas and Trabzonspor offer interesting projects. Both clubs will take part in the Europa League this season and will be hoping to push Galatasaray for the league title. Bolasie could play a major role in these battles if he moves to Turkey.
