As reported by France Football this week both Everton and West Ham are interested in signing Maxime Gonalons this summer.
The report claims that Sevilla will not be signing him permanently after an injury-plagued loan spell from AS Roma.
A loan move to England is now on the table, but should Crystal Palace also be moving into position?
Last summer, the Eagles were strongly linked with a move for the Frenchman.
As reported by the London Evening Standard, Palace sporting director Dougie Freedman identified Gonalons as a potential £10 million target. Sky eventually suggested an £8.9 million bid was made for the player by Palace at the end of July.
He was being eyed up as a potential replacement for Yohan Cabaye, who was on his way to the United Arab Emirates.
However, he eventually agreed on a deal with Sevilla to join on loan. So Palace missed out last summer but this year Gonalons would be an easier get.
After an injury beset season at Sevilla, Roma could hardly ask for more money this time around and Crystal Palace’s will still appreciate the 30-year-old’s talents.
With those injury troubles behind him, Crystal Palace should consider making another approach for Gonalons.
