Tottenham Hotpsur are considering a move to sign Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, according to Sky Sports.
The 26-year-old joined the Eagles from Bristol City in 2012 and has improved over the years, before having an impressive campaign during the 2014/15 season. He became the first Palace player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.
Alan Pardew left Newcastle United and joined Palace at the start of this calendar year. Bolasie is believed to be a key player for Palace and the manager is keen on keeping him at the club.
They have already signed Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain, while sealing a loan deal for Chelsea starlet Patrick Bamford. Pardew wants to build a team after last season's impressive run and is keen on Bolasie being part of the squad for the next term.
The former Magpies manager was aware of rumoured interest for his star winger. He slapped a £40m ($62m) price tag for Bolasie to ward off interest from any potential suitors.
"I'll sell Yannick, if someone wants to give me £40m to £60m, somewhere in there, that would be good. I'll take it and we'll build the team around that money. Every player has a price, of course," Pardew said earlier in April, as quoted by Sky Sports.
"So I'm going to address that. Anyone who rings me up will get a proper price. Therefore when I hear figures being talked about players, they are not even close to where I value these players."
"It's very easy to address: a manager has to ring me up and I will tell him the price, and that will be addressed," he added.
Any move from Mauricio Pochettino's side for Bolasie will see them face competition from their Premier League rivals. The DR Congo international is also attracting interest from West Ham United and Aston Villa, who are monitoring his situation at Selhurst Park.
Sky Sports claim at least two of these clubs are set to place their bids for Bolasie, who is valued to be around £40m ($62m) by Palace. It should be seen whether the Eagles will let their winger leave, if either of the clubs matches the price quoted by Pardew in April.
