Fenerbahce are interested in taking Everton winger Yannick Bolasie on loan for the season, according to Turkish newspaper outlet Milliyet.

Former Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has recently been appointed the sporting director at the Super Lig side and has made the Toffees an offer for the Congo international.

The Frenchman is believed to have spoken to Bolasie’s representatives too but the 29-year-old doesn’t appear keen on a move to Turkey and wants to speak to Everton teammate Cenk Tosun, who previously played in the Turkish top-flight with Besiktas, before deciding.

Fenerbahce are on the lookout for a new winger this summer but financial troubles at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium mean they will have to rely on loans and free transfers.

Bolasie joined Everton for £26million from Crystal Palace in August 2016 but a cruciate knee ligament injury in December kept him out of action for nearly a year.

Brought to Goodison Park by Ronald Koeman, the Dutchman was sacked in October last year and replaced by Sam Allardyce with the Toffees struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table.

Bolasie returned to action in December and featured 16 times under Allardyce, scoring once in the defeat to Manchester City, as the former England manager led the Merseyside club to an eighth-place finish.

Despite this, Allardyce was replaced by former Watford boss Marco Silva last month and it remains to be seen whether the winger has plans for him next season.

Bolasie, who has three years to run on his current contract at Everton, has scored twice in 32 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Meanwhile, it appears Wayne Rooney will be leaving Goodison Park for a second time with a move to MLS side DC United.

Norwich City’s James Maddison has been identified as his possible replacement and it seems England’s record goalscorer has no place in Silva’s plans.
