According to HITC Sport, Yannick Bolasie is heading to Merseyside today to complete a medical as his move to Everton nears its conclusion.

The Blues have been busy in the transfer market this week, with John Stones heading to Manchester City in a big money move.

They quickly replaced him with Swansea City’s Ashley Williams, while also making a move for Sunderland’s Lamine Kone.

Bolasie is another one who has been targeted, with the Guardian reporting they were closing in on a £28 million move for the Crystal Palace winger.

They failed to get a deal concluded before the start of the Premier League season yesterday, with Bolasie featuring for the Eagles in their defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

However, it appears they are now keen to get it over the line as HITC Sport reports that he is travelling to Merseyside today to complete a medical ahead of the move.

He will be the Blues first big money move of the summer transfer window, with their moves for Williams, Idrissa Gueye and Maarten Stekelenburg having been very low key to say the least.
