Crystal Palace interested in trio of forwards including Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard


Some insight into the potential changes to Crystal Palace’s attack this summer has emerged online on Monday.

Zaha & Benteke out

First up, despite the 2020/21 Premier League campaign getting underway over the weekend, Roy Hodgson could still yet part with two of his attackers.

These players come in the form of Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke.

According to The Times, Palace want to sell Christian Benteke and Zaha would like to leave.

The former has been a major flop since his arrival from Liverpool in 2016 and with less than 12 months remaining on his contract, the Eagles would no doubt prefer to cash in on him this summer – rather than lose him for free next year.

Belgian outfit Club Brugge are believed to be interested in the 29-year-old.

As for Zaha, the Ivorian has made it quite clear in the past that he wishes to depart Palace, though the club are understood to want £50m for the forward – a fee it is hard to see anyone paying at this moment in time.

Edouard, Sarr & Benrahma in

However, given the names Crystal Palace are believed to want to bring in should Zaha and Benteke depart, they probably do need to recoup around £50m from Zaha’s sale.

As per the above-linked report from The Times, Palace are prepared for the departures of Benteke and Zaha and hold an interest in all of Brentford’s Said Benrahma, Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard and Watford’s Ismaila Sarr.

Whilst all three would no doubt make fine additions to Roy Hodgson’s squad, you would imagine they would cost a fair chunk of change.

It has previously been claimed that Edouard has a £40m price-tag, with a similar fee believed to be on Sarr’s head.

Benrahma looks to be the cheapest of the trio, with recent reports stating the winger is valued at £20m.
