Competition for target

Crystal Palace will have to see off plenty of competition if they are to win the race to sign Gambian youngster Adama Bojang this summer. The Evening Standard claim league rivals Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all ‘monitoring’ the 19-year-old progress at the moment. He currently plays for Steve Biko FC but they are facing a real battle to keep hold of him.

Defender on radar

The Eagles are apparently keen on signing Torino defender Perr Schuurs and will ‘step up’ their ‘interest’ in the Serie A ace, as per a report by the Daily Mail, with Newcastle United and Napoli also mentioned as potential suitors. The 23-year-old, who is a former Holland youth international, moved to Italy last year from Ajax and has adapted well to life in Serie A over the past 12 months. He made 36 appearances in all competitions in the last campaign, 30 of which came in the league.

Departed attacker eyed

BirminghamLive claim Birmingham City are weighing up a move for Junior Dixon following his departure from Crystal Palace. The 18-year-old is available on a free transfer after leaving South London and has a big decision to make on where to go next. He spent time on trial with the Blues last term and they are now believed to be interested in snapping him up on a permanent basis as they look to bolster their youth ranks.
