Report: Crystal Palace eye move for Mostafa Mohamed
According to a report from HaberTurk, Crystal Palace are weighing up a move for Galatasaray striker, Mostafa Mohamed, ahead of the summer window.
Mohamed has made a fine start to life in Turkey, and has scored three times in as many games for the Istanbul giants.
However, it is believed Galatasaray may be open to cashing in on Mohamed already, with the report claiming a £22m price tag has already been slapped on the head of the Egyptian striker.
Mohamed only moved to Turkey in January of this year, so the thought of Galatasaray selling him suggests they already know they have a gem on their hands.
The 23-year-old apparently came close to joining Rangers previously, but shunned interest from Glasgow to seal his move to the Turkish giants.
Palace, meanwhile, are desperate for a striker who can lead the line for them. The likes of Benteke and Batshuayi have both failed to get going, while an over-reliance on Wilf Zaha is, at times, killing the Eagles.
TBR View: Mohamed looks quite the talent but Palace must be wary and do due diligence
It’s been a blistering start to life with ‘Gala’ for Mohamed but there’s little point in Palace jumping the gun on this one.
As the report says, Palace are looking to scout Mohamed at first. And this is the right move, they need to be fully sure they are getting the right man, given the importance of the position.
But, if he can continue scoring the goals, then a Premier League could well beckon for the Egyptian ace.
