The summer transfer window opens soon and Crystal Palace will be eyeing up some reinforcements to try and improve on their 12-place finish in the Premier League.
Patrick Vieira has already had to deal with the loan deal of Conor Gallagher concluding and a replacement for him will be a priority.
Club chairman Steve Parish will have been happy with Vieira’s maiden season in charge of the club and will want to bolster their chances of a top ten finish next year.
In light of this, here is the Eagles latest transfer news and rumours.
Palace contemplate Wan-Bissaka return
Crystal Palace are still trying to figure out whether they will attempt to bring Aaron Wan-Bissaka back from Manchester United.
The defender has been told that he is not part of new manager Erik ten Hag’s plans at Old Trafford, and this has led to the possibility of him returning to Selhurst Park.
Vieira is keen to add to his right-back choices, with Nathaniel Clyne and Joel Ward both over 30 years of age.
The fee to bring back Wan-Bissaka may be a sticking point for the Eagles, with United hoping to recoup some of their original £50m they spent on the player.
The MEN have reported that United are 'offering the defender to clubs'.
Fulham to battle with Palace for O’Brien
Fulham will join Palace in the battle for Lewis O’Brien’s signature this summer, as the player looks for a Premier League move.
Huddersfield seem determined to keep hold of the player, but this is unlikely with a release clause being added to the player's contract in January of £12m.
Palace will have to try and fend off interest from Marco Silva and Fulham to sign the midfielder. O’Brien would be a strong replacement for the outgoing Gallagher.
Palace target Aribo
Patrick Vieira is ready to make an approach for Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo who scored the club’s only goal in the Europa League final a few weeks ago.
The Athletic report that Vieira is looking to bring the 25-year-old to Selhurst park with the player only having one year left on his current deal at Ibrox.
Rangers will do everything they can to keep hold of their star man, but it will be an interesting story to follow.
