Middlesbrough will try to sign Yannick Bolasie on loan, according to The Northern Echo.
Bolasie failed to complete a move away from Everton on deadline day and now that Crystal Palace and Burnley have missed out, it paves the way for Boro to attempt a loan deal.
The 29-year-old has been with Everton for two years, playing 32 games and scoring twice, although last season was hampered by injury.
The DR Congo international spent four years with Crystal Palace prior to that, winning promotion to the Premier League and scoring 13 goals in nearly 150 games from the wing.
Bolasie is not the only Everton player that Middlesbrough will target on loan.
Tony Pulis is also keen on Muhamed Besic, whose £6m deadline day deal fell through due to agent fees, but Boro remain confident of re-signing their former midfield star on another loan arrangement.
If Boro could pull off this signing, it would be a real statement of intent and you have to class them as promotion contenders.
Bolasie is a bag of tricks, offering skill, pace, the ability to shoot and create chances for his team-mates.
At Championship level, he would be heads and shoulders above the rest if he can recapture the form he showed before his serious injury.
