One thing is for sure – Crystal Palace have a tidy squad.
Premier League quality players are all over the pitch, but if there’s one thing likely to be on the mind of Roy Hodgson, it has to be depth.
The midfield of Luka Milivojevic, James McArthur, Cheikhou Kouyate, and Max Meyer has been impressive, but fans will be eager to see some new blood arrive in the summer.
Here are five potential candidates:
1) Ruben Rochina - Levante
The Spaniard has been a pivotal part of Levante’s side in La Liga this season, with his astonishing creativity and physical defensive contributions (exhibited here, thumping Ousmane Dembele). Strong at set pieces and calm in front of goal, the 27-year-old could make an immediate impact in the Premier League.
2) Marko Grujic - Liverpool (currently on loan at Hertha Berlin)
Grujic has been impressing whilst at Hertha Berlin, and Palace may want to enquire as to Liverpool’s plans for the midfielder’s future. It has been typical of Liverpool to allow young players with a good reputation to leave for the right price, and Grujic could join another ex Red in Mamadou Sakho in South London.
3) Michel Vlap - SC Heerenveen
The 21-year-old could be a good option for Palace if they wanted to add a youngster with some experience of first team football to their squad. Vlap has made 27 appearances in all competitions this season, and has scored an astonishing 15 goals from his central midfield spot.
4) Ibrahim Sangare - Toulouse
The Cote D’Ivoire international is another good option should Hodgson want to get younger at the central midfield position, with the 21-year-old catching the attention of numerous European outfits on the back of his Ligue 1 performances this year. A superb defensive presence, he could be a handy partner for the meeker Meyer.
5) Victor Wanyama - Spurs
If Spurs decide they want to participate in the transfer window this year, the Kenyan could quickly fall down the pecking order in the north of the capital. Palace could be well poised to strike, and add another Premier League quality man to their side.
