Tottenham Hotspur have received a boost in their pursuit of Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, with the player being keen on making the move from south to north London if the opportunity presents itself, reports the Mirror.

The winger was one of Palace's best players last season and is believe to be open to a move, although it is believed he would not object to another season under Alan Pardew as it would boost his claims for a move to a club in the Champions League.

West Ham, Newcastle, Spurs and Aston Villa are also interested, but Spurs are the favourites for his signature, with manager Mauricio Pochettino looking to lead the side to a top four finish next season. The lure of staying in London, where he is currently settled, would also be a major factor for the DR Congo international.

The winger scored four goals and assisted six in 34 appearances for the club and is expected to get better next season. He would add some much needed width in the Tottenham line-up and take the pressure off Harry Kane, who has been single-handedly marshalling their attack.

Spurs are looking to make some major changes to their squad, with Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend expected to be on their way out of the club. The North London side are looking to secure a deal with Everton for Kevin Mirallas and James McCarthy, with the latter desperate to move out of the club owing to the club's failure to offer him an improved contract, as also reported by the Mirror.

Tottenham have also had a bid rejected for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, according to the Daily Telgraph, and are likely to come in with a renewed offer to test the waters. With the clubs above them, as well as Liverpool, investing in new signings, it is imperative that Spurs splash the cash, or they will find themselves struggling in the Europa League again next season.
