West Ham United are leading the chase to sign Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, according to the Mirror.
A number of Premier League sides are keeping tabs on the DR Congo international with Manchester United and Liverpool among those linked though the Hammers are keen to steal a march on their rivals.
Palace have already brought in reinforcements in Bolasie’s position in the shape of Andros Townsend, who moved to Selhurst Park from Newcastle United last month.
Bolasie, 27, signed for the Eagles from Bristol City in the summer of 2012 and has since racked up one hundred and forty-three appearances for the South London club in all competitions, scoring thirteen goals.
His last outing for Alan Pardew’s side came in the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United at Wembley back in May, while he has been capped twenty-seven times for his country, scoring on seven occasions.
