Here is a look at the latest news coming out of the club today....

New boys want target

Crystal Palace target Morgan Gibbs-White is reportedly wanted by top flight new boys Nottingham Forest.

The attacking midfielder, who is currently on the books at Wolves, is a man in-demand in this transfer window after impressing on loan in the Championship with Sheffield United last term.

As per a report by TEAMtalk, Forest are keen to ‘strike a deal’ to lure him to the City Ground as they seek to continue their impressive recruitment drive following their promotion from the second tier.

Bundesliga man on radar

Patrick Viera’s side could now turn their attentions elsewhere for reinforcements.

They are apparently interested in RB Leipzig and Guineamidfielder Ilaix Morina, who spent time on loan at Valencia in Spain last term.

According to FootMercato, the South London outfit are ‘interested’ in luring him to England.

Milivojevic on new signing

Crystal Palace have swooped to sign midfielder Cheick Doucoure from Lens this summer.

The 22-year-old will be looking to impress with his new club.

His teammate Luca Milivojevic has delivered his initial verdict on the signing, as per the club’s official website: “He is a little bit shy because maybe he is a little bit scared of his English. We as a group, we have an unbelievable group in the dressing room.

“I’m not worried for any new faces coming into the club, because there will be plenty of boys to help them adapt – I am one of them.

“It’s important to have that mix of experienced and young players – we help each other to be honest. We help those young boys adapt, and they push us until our limits.”
