Crystal Palace target being ‘monitored’ by other clubs and future of young winger

Crystal Palace will face competition for one of their key transfer targets in January - plus, the future of a young winger hangs in the balance.

Crystal Palace suffered a heavy 3-0 home defeat against fellow London club Fulham in their first Premier League game since the start of the 2022 World Cup. Who are Palace looking at to try and strengthen their squad in January?

The Eagles have been monitoring a right back at Manchester United for some time now. However, they could be beaten to the punch by Wolves, who have also registered their interest in the defender.

Meanwhile, one of Palace’s academy products has attracted the attention of several clubs in the EFL. Currently out on loan, he could be recalled and sent elsewhere in January.

Wolves interested in signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a key target for Crystal Palace in January, according to reports. The 25-year-old is out of favour at Manchester United, with rumours of his departure growing ever louder. Palace aren’t the only club in the race though, as Wolves also want to sign him, according to The Athletic.

Losing out on Wan-Bissaka would be a blow - however, with the right-back having previous links to the Eagles, the player himself could be more keen on returning to a familiar environment. Wan-Bissaka made 42 Premier League appearances for Palace between 2016 and 2019.

Palace starlet targeted by numerous EFL clubs

Jesurun Rak-Sakyi has turned the heads of multiple clubs in the Football League, according to the Evening Standard. Among them are Sheffield Wednesday, Millwall and Hull City - although Hull boss Liam Rosenior rubbished claims that the Tigers are lining up a move (per Hull Live).

The 20-year-old is currently on loan at Charlton Athletic. Although his loan contract does not expire until the end of the season, it’s been suggested that he may be recalled and sent out to another club in a better position to aid his development. Charlton have had a poor season so far - they are 17th in League One, with Rak-Sakyi being their top scorer.
