Report: Crystal Palace and Newcastle eye Angelo Fulgini
Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are amongst the group of sides keen on signing Angers midfielder Angelo Fulgini, according to the Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail reports that Fulgini is set to be sold this summer as the Ligue 1 side look to raise funds.
The 24-year-old scored 10 goals in all competitions last term. Meanwhile, he also provided four assists across the top flight and the cup.
Unsurprisingly, his form is attracting attention. And according to the Daily Mail, Palace and the Magpies are keen to bring him to the Premier League.
The report notes that he is set to cost £12 million. Meanwhile, Monaco are also interested in the former France under-21 international.
Palace target Fulgini could be ideal for Newcastle amid £12m asking price
Steve Bruce is set to be handed a modest budget this summer. According to a recent report, it could be less than £20 million.
So a move for Fulgini may make a lot of sense. He is a creative, goalscoring midfielder heading into the peak years of his career. And he may only cost £12 million.
The Magpies have enjoyed some success when signing players from France in recent years.
But Palace have been one of the sides to really impress in the transfer window so far.
So if the Eagles are indeed keen on Fulgini, they are unlikely to make it easy for any of their rivals to beat them in the race for his signature.
