He becomes Everton’s fourth major summer signing following the arrivals of Maarten Stekelenburg, Idrissa Gueye and Ashley Williams to Ronald Koeman’s new-look squad.
Bolasie was on the substitute’s bench for Palace’s 1-0 defeat against West Brom on Saturday but came on in the 66th minute to a standing ovation from the Selhurst Park support.
The 27-year-old has ended a four-year stay at Palace, how he joined in 2012 after moving from Bristol City for £250,000.
In total, Bolasie played in 31 encounters for the Eagles last season in all competitions, scoring six goals and providing six assists.
