Liverpool have been told by Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew that they will need to bid in excess of £20m to sign in-form winger Yannick Bolasie this summer.

According to the Telegraph, Brendan Rodgers is an admirer of the DR Congo international and is planning a move in the summer.

The report claims that the Merseyside club are weighing up an offer of around £10m to bring the winger to Anfield.

Bolasie has been an integral part of the Palace team, since his arrival from Bristol City in 2012 and this season he has come to the fore with his impressive performances.

He has helped Pardew's team all but secure the Premier League season for the second consecutive season and the club will be reluctant to let him go at the end of the current campaign.

The Eagles boss has made it clear that he is not looking to sell any of his players and he has already started tying down his players after Joel Ward signed an extension to his current deal this week.

Liverpool boss Rodgers will be looking to strengthen his team during the summer as they face the prospect of missing out on a place in the Champions League.

But if Pardew gets his wish, the Reds will have to make an offer too tempting for the Selhurst Park outfit to turn down to land their man.

"It was good news for us this week (with Ward). We wanted to send a statement that our players will be very, very difficult to take away," Pardew said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"One, because they enjoy their football and two because we are going forward. Brede Hangeland said to me when he was at Fulham that he sensed that no one wanted to leave. (There was a report of a) £10m price on Bolasie. Blimey."

"It needs to be more than double that to get near him. We are in a great financial position. I am not getting carried away with where we are but we are doing very well in the Premier League," the Palace boss explained.

Palace are currently in 11<sup>th place, just one point behind West Ham United and Stoke City in ninth place and 10<sup>th place respectively. And the former Newcastle boss is confident that they can finish in the top ten in the Premier League.

"Top 10 is a realistic aim and then we want to build on that. The chairman has done a fantastic job. I will be banging his door down in the summer for some big signings," Pardew concluded.
