Crystal Palace kick-started their run of pre-season friendlies with a 1-1 draw against Accrington Stanley last Saturday.

The game against the League One side was mainly to help the players get back up to speed and the Eagles have more games coming up against Millwall, Liverpool, Manchester United, Leeds United, QPR and Montpellier.

They then start the new season at home to Patrick Viera’s former club Arsenal.

Palace finished in a respectable 12th position in the Premier League in their first campaign under the Frenchman and will be eager to build on that next term.

They have so far signed young attacker Malcolm Ebiowie from Derby County and goalkeeper Sam Johnstone from West Bromwich Albion to bolster their ranks.

More arrivals are expected through the door over the coming weeks too with various players linked right now.

Here is a look at all the latest Crystal Palace news today...

Boost in pursuit of Aribo

Rangers ace Joe Aribo has refused to sign a new deal with the Scottish Premiership side in a boost to clubs after him.

Crystal Palace are admirers of the midfielder, as detailed in a report by The Sun, with other clubs like Southampton, Fulham and Nottingham Forest in the frame too.

TalkSPORT claim he has ‘refused’ to commit his future to his current club now.

Delay in Doucoure deal

It has been no secret that the Eagles are trying to seal a deal to sign Lens midfielder Cheick Doucoure.

The Mali international, 22, has been a key player for the Ligue 1 side since 2018.

Journalist Alan Nixon says the delay in him joining is due to permit issues.

Olise linked with move away

Michael Olise has been a hit at Selhurst Park since signing last year.

The youngster made the switch from Reading and enjoyed plenty of game time during his first year at the club.

NUFC Blog have reported that Newcastle United have been keeping tabs on his progress, but it remains to be seen whether there is anything concrete behind this one.
