Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie has 'favourited' a tweet linking him with a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The 26-year-old's social media activity, spotted by the Evening Standard, prompted a wave of speculation among Spurs fans on Twitter as excitement continues to grow over the possibility of Mauricio Pochettino landing the DR Congo international.

Bolasie scored four Premier League goals last season - including a hat-trick as Palace won 4-1 away at Sunderland in April - and shone under Alan Pardew as the south London club pulled away from the drop zone in the second half of last season.

The winger showcased his flair at White Hart Lane and helped Palace to an impressive comeback win over Tottenham at Selhurst Park but Pardew has slapped a massive price tag on the sought after Palace star.

The Eagles boss said in April: "I'll sell Yannick, if someone wants to give me £40m to £60m, somewhere in there, that would be good," Pardew said.

"I'll take it and we'll build the team around that money. Every player has a price, of course."
