Bolasie is attracting interest from Everton, Newcastle, and Stoke who have made enquiries about the player's availability, according to the Daily Mail.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew said he valued the midfielder around 45 million, which would reflect an effort to scare off any potential buyers. Bolasie signed for Crystal Palace in 2012, scoring seven goals in 108 appearances.

Bolasie netted an 11-minute hat-trick in Saturday's 4-1 win at Sunderland.

Bolasie slid home Glenn Murray's flick-on in the 51st minute before outpacing centre back John O'Shea and lifting an audacious lob over Costel Pantilimon two minutes later. He completed his hat trick in the 62nd minute after bundling home another Murray pass. He also added an assist after crossing for Palace's first goal, which was headed in by Murray. Bolasie, along with Murray, Wilfried Zaha and Jason Puncheon, are proving an irresistible combination for fantasy players right now.

Bolasie registered an assist in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Newcastle.

Bolasie's pin point cross found Fraizer Campbell who slotted home from six yards out to give Palace a point. Bolasie, who was a second half substitute, was playing for the first time since early January due to his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Bolasie could be away for up to a month while playing for Congo in the Africa Cup of Nations, Sky Sports reports.

Bolasie has started every game for Palace this season and will be a big hole to fill, as will teammate Mile Jedinak, who could be gone for the same period while playing for Australia in the Asian Cup.

Bolasie is doubtful for Sunday's visit to QPR as his partner is due to give birth, according to the BBC.

Bolasie and his partner are expecting a new arrival and if he cannot play then Wilfried Zaha will come into the team. The DR Congo winger will also miss much of January due to the African Cup of Nations, which means his last game will be Jan. 10 against Tottenham. Bolasie has five assists so far this season and will be sorely missed once the tournament gets underway for DR Congo on Jan. 18.

Bolasie assisted the home side's only goal in Saturdays 1-1 draw against Stoke City.

Bolasie's pin point cross was expertly headed home by James McArthur to give Palace an 11th minute lead. The DR Congo winger was a threat throughout the game as the home side looked the more likely side to snatch all three points. Bolasie now leads the side with five assists, more than the entire 2014/14 campaign.

Bolasie registered two assists in Sunday's 3-1 win against Liverpool.

Bolasie's 17th minute shot cannoned back off the post for Dwight Gayle to equalise before Joe Ledley slotted Bolasie's 78th minute cross into the net to make it 2-1. The winger now has four assists on the campaign to lead the team and is Palace's most potent threat going forward.
