Crystal Palace transfers state of play with players linked and exits potentially on the cards

The latest Crystal Palace transfer news and rumours.

Crystal Palace kick-start the new Premier League season at home to Arsenal on Friday night.

The Eagles are preparing for Patrick Viera’s second full campaign at the helm.

He guided them to a respectable 12th place finish last term.

Here is a look at all the latest transfer news regarding the London club...

Crystal Palace are reportedly trying to sign Levi Colwill from Chelsea, as per the Evening Standard. The youngster spent last term on loan in the Championship at Huddersfield Town and helped the Terriers get to the Championship play-off final.

Young defender Jake O’Brien is wanted on loan by League One sides Bristol Rovers and Barnsley according to journalist Alan Nixon on his Patreon. The Irishman spent part of the last campaign with Swindon Town in League Two.

In terms of the midfield department, with it unlikely that Conor Gallagher will be returning, Palace have set their sights on Wolves playmaker Morgan Gibbs-White. According to a report by 90min, they were said to be ‘leading the race’ for him at the start of July but things have gone quiet since then.

Viera could now turn his attentions elsewhere as he hunts for reinforcements and The Sun report he wants to bring Ruben Loftus-Cheek in from Chelsea. The England international was a hit on loan at Selhurst Park a few years ago.

Youngsters like Jerusun Rak-Sakyi, Daniel Ozeh and Malachi Boateng are attracting interest from the Football League.

London News Online have reported that Charlton Athletic want Rak-Sakyi, whilst Nixon has claimed that the Addicks are also keen on Ozeh.

The same reporter has also said that Boateng is heading to Scotland on loan with Queen’s Park.

Crystal Palace may look to bolster their attacking options before the end of the window if speculation is anything to go by. Napoli and Mexico attacker Hirving Lozana is apparently on their radar according to Area Napoli.

Football Insider have also reported that they want striker Ludovic Ajorque from Strasbourg along with Newcastle United.
