Crystal Palace are considering a move for Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill during the transfer window.
According to Team Talk, the Eagles will be joined by Burnley and Leicester City in the race for his signature.
Brownhill signed for the Robins from Preston North End in 2016 following the end of his Deepdale contract.
The 24-year-old has come of age at Ashton Gate. He has played 160 games for the club, scoring 17 goals and registering 12 assists.
Brownhill has taken on the captain’s armband in the absence of Marlon Pack who joined Cardiff City in the summer.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson is looking to bolster his ranks during the window.
He has already added Cenk Tosun from Everton and is now looking for some midfield reinforcements.
Brownhill typically plays as a central midfielder but this season he has shown the versatility to play on the right side of midfield or as a number 10.
The report claims that around £3 million will be required to prise the ex-Lilywhites performer away from Bristol City.
TBR View – Brownhill could be a smart move by Hodgson
The Championship performer perhaps isn’t the big name that supporters crave but he can play.
Hodgson is a masterful coach and he could be just the manager to unearth the potential within Brownhill.
The player has learnt his trade in the Football League and has shown promising signs that he can adapt to the Premier League.
Palace could get themselves a player who wouldn’t break the bank and one who could become a really solid top-flight player.
