Celtic are among the clubs reportedly interested in making a move for Everton winger Yannick Bolasie in the next few weeks.
The 30-year-old has struggled with injuries since joining the Merseyside club in 2016, making just 32 appearances and finishing last season on loan at Anderlecht.
Despite scoring six goals in 17 appearances for the Belgian side, showing some of the form that made him such a popular signing three years ago, the arrival of Alex Iwobi from Arsenal on deadline day is believed to have made the winger surplus to requirements at Goodison Park.
A loan-to-buy deal was agreed that would see the former Crystal Palace star move to CSKA Moscow, but the player turned it down, possibly because of the racism faced by recent Zenit St Petersburg signing Malcom.
The DR Congo international's £80,000-a-week wage at Everton could prove significant in negotiations, with the Toffees believed to be interested in starting a bidding war as a means of recouping as much of the £25m they paid for the winger as possible.body check tags ::
