All the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Crystal Palace ahead of the return of Premier League football.

Crystal Palace are closing in on their return to Premier League action, taking on London rivals Fulham on Boxing Day.

Patrick Vieira’s men have made a solid start to the season, currently 11th in the table and goal difference behind Fulham in the top half. Palace have been keeping busy during the break, competing in a number of friendlies, and most recently they bounced back from a defeat to Napoli with a win over Valladolid.

They will be hoping to take that win into Monday’s clash with Fulham, but in the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Selhurst Park.

Wan-Bissaka interest

Palace are said to be pushing for a deal to re-sign full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United.

Wan-Bissaka has struggled at United since his 2019 move, and according to Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Seth, Palace are now pushing for a deal to take their former defender back to Selhurst Park.

“Remember United spent close to £50 million for Wan-Bissaka,” Sheth told GiveMeSport. “I think they’ll want some kind of guarantee over getting some of that money back, be that in a loan with an obligation to buy, or straight sale in January.

“The likes of West Ham United and in particular Crystal Palace will be two of quite a few interested parties in Wan-Bissaka this January.”

Zaha urged to leave

Palace star Wilfried Zaha has been urged to consider a move to either of Arsenal and Tottenham.

“There will be a lot of clubs in the mix for Zaha because he has done so well,” Paul Robinson told Football Insider. “He has to take the next step in his career now. I know it didn’t work out at Man United but he is a different player now. He has been brilliant for Crystal Palace.

“Champions League football is the next step up and the next challenge for him. If Spurs are in the mix for him, I think it might be with a view to him playing as a left wing-back. [Ryan] Sessegnon and Perisic have done well but Zaha would be another great option.

"I think that would be a clever move. There is also the possibility of Lucas Moura leaving so there is definitely room for Zaha at Spurs. He would provide serious competition for places.”
