Both clubs are crying out for a quality winger and Bolasie will be a superb addition.
Steve Bruce recently mentioned that his side are light in the wide areas and therefore it is no surprise that he is trying to bring in the Everton player.
As for Pulis, he has worked with the player before at Crystal Palace and he wants the 29-year-old to replace Adama Traore. The Spaniard joined Wolves this summer.
It seems that Bolasie will have to make a decision now. Both Villa and Boro are capable of challenging for promotion and he is likely to play often for both of them.
It will be interesting to see who the 29-year-old picks now.
