Crystal Palace ended the season in style last Sunday with a 5-3 win over Bournemouth at Selhurst Park.
Roy Hodgson led the club to a comfortable midtable finish in the Premier League, securing their place in the top-flight for another year.
Two of the goals in the crazy game against Bournemouth came from on-loan Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
The Belgian international scored an impressive acrobatic effort and turned in Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross from close-range in the first-half, as he took his tally to five goals in 11 Premier League games for the club.
However, he has now returned to Chelsea and Palace will need to weigh up their options heading into the summer transfer window as they look to strengthen their squad.
Palace will need to bring in a new number nine to lead their line next year, but who should they target? Here are some players they could look at…
The French forward was brilliant for Brentford throughout the season and deserves a chance to show what he can do in the Premier League. He would be a terrific addition to Palace’s attacking trio.
After an impressive spell on loan, Palace could look to bring Batshuayi back for another year at Selhurst Park. The Chelsea forward is a proven goalscorer and would come with a degree of certainty over his ability.
After Leeds failed to secure promotion to the Premier League, Palace could look to take advantage and snap up Roofe. He’s a keen runner and clinical in front of goal, just what Palace need.
If Villa fail to secure promotion, Palace could look to see if they can sign Abraham on loan from Chelsea next season. If they are unable to take Batshuayi from Chelsea, Abraham could be an ideal alternative.
The 17-year-old made his Premier League debut for Manchester United last weekend and clearly has a big future in the game. Palace could look to play a part in his development and take him for a season.
The Italian forward has impressed in the Serie A this season and could be ready to prove himself in the Premier League. Palace need a goalscorer, and he certainly is one.
