The 31-year-old winger reportedly came very close to joining Middlesbrough in 2018 and was even given a tour of the club’s training ground, but the deal fell through and he ended up going to Aston Villa on loan instead. The Toffees initially signed Bolasie from Crystal Palace in 2016 in a deal worth around £25 million, but he soon suffered an ACL injury and was out of action for over a year. Apart from Aston Villa, he also had loan spells with RSC Anderlecht and Sporting Lisbon. He is now in the final year of his contract with Everton and is likely to leave as a free agent this summer, once the proposed loan to Middlesbrough comes to an end.
In the four years he’s been on the books at the Merseyside club, he has only played 32 times for them in all competitions, with no more than two goals and four assists to his name.
