Crystal Palace suffered a heavy home defeat on Wednesday evening at Selhurst Park as they were swept aside by Tottenham Hotspur. The game ended 4-0 - however, with the January transfer window now open, the Eagles have an opportunity to strengthen their squad for the rest of the Premier League season.
One of Crystal Palace’s star attacking players is a target for PSG in the transfer window, according to reports. Palace signed the player for £8.4 million back in 2021 from Reading - could Paris be his next destination?
Elsewhere, a Palace goalkeeper is set to depart the club imminently. According to reports, he is undergoing a medical at Manchester United, with a deal already agreed.
Michael Olise is reportedly a PSG target
Michael Olise, one of Crystal Palace’s premier attacking players, has allegedly attracted the interest of PSG (per the Daily Mail Online). The 21-year-old has experience in France, having represented Les Bleus internationally at under-18 and under-21 level.
While no move has been made as of yet, it is understood that PSG are ‘monitoring’ the Hammersmith-born starlet. Olise has made 16 Premier League appearances so far this season for Palace, scoring a single goal and notching up four assists.
Manchester United to sign Jack Butland
Jack Butland is set to undergo a medical at Manchester United today after a transfer was agreed, according to BBC Sport. The move is expected to be a loan deal, with an option to buy upon its conclusion. Details regarding the potential loan cost are currently unknown.
Butland has been at Palace since 2020, when he signed from Stoke City for an undisclosed fee. Tipped for success when his career was in its infancy, he has yet to reach the heights that pundits thought he would achieve.
At United, Butland is expected to play second fiddle to their first choice ‘keeper, David De Gea. The 29-year-old has been capped by England on nine occasions, but has not been called up to the squad since 2018. This season, he has made no appearances for Palace - however, this is in part due to a finger injury that has kept him out of action for the majority of the campaign.
