Crystal Palace have been linked with a potential summer swoop for Spezia centre-back Martin Erlic.

Palace could look to strengthen their squad in the summer in order to push on in the next campaign and one area in which they could boost is centre-back. All of Palace’s current centre-backs are 30 or older, so signing a younger defender could be a good move by the club.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, as transcribed by Sport Witness, one player Palace have been keeping tabs on is Spezia defender Martin Erlic.

The report claims that Palace see “Premier League quality” in Erlic. This suggests that he could be performing to a high level in the Serie B this season and ready to make the step up to top-flight football next term.

But, who is he? We have compiled a factfile on the defender to help you get to know him more.
