Liverpool want Crystal Palace starlet

Liverpool are keeping close tabs on Crystal Palace starlet, Yannick Bolasie. The young winger caused Brendan Rodgers side all kinds of trouble when the sides met at Selhurst Park last weekend.

Rodgers sees Bolasie as a player who could adapt to the way of the Reds and prove a valuable asset to his team one day. However, Palace boss, Neil Warnock has delivered a stern message – he is not for sale.

Speaking to the Express, Warnock said, ““He won’t be going anywhere in January, no chance. He’s a great lad and the top clubs don’t know what he can and can’t do so how can they come in for him.”

Bolasie’s man of the match performance in the victory over Liverpool last Sunday confirmed the winger’s growing reputation. The DR Congo international joined the Eagles in a £500,000 switch from Bristol City two years ago.

Warnock added, “I think he is made to measure for Palace. It is that kind of the club with the stage and the fans. He needs to find more consistency but now we have three games in a week and so we need him to perform as he did against Liverpool.”

Despite his performance, the former QPR manager insists he needs to remain consistent in his performances.

Should Bolasie stay at Crystal Palace?

    Young??? He’s 25 years old! I would be happy if we signed him, can really stretch a defence down the wing! Sterling is quick but struggles to get away from players at first couple of yards.

    Going nowhere as he has just signed a new contract with Palace and we have no need to sell our best players
