Report: Crystal Palace interested in attacker with 17 goals last season

Crystal Palace are reportedly setting their sights on Bournemouth attacker Arnaut Danjuma as a potential transfer target.

Sky Sports claims Palace have the 24-year-old Dutch star on their radar and may be interested in him. In addition, they are also looking at Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson and RB Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman.

Palace, who are under new management this season with Patrick Vieira, are throwing down a real marker with some of their new signings. Reports seem to suggest they are not done yet.

Danjuma is currently playing in the English Championship with Bournemouth. His side missed out on promotion last season with a play-off semi-final defeat. 

The rapid left-winger finished last season with 17 goals, including two during the Championship play-offs. Also, he chalked up eight assists.

He previously had a brief taste of Premier League football in a Bournemouth shirt, but as it stands is preparing for a second season in the second tier. There is genuine Premier League interest in him though and not just from Palace. 

Spanish newspaper Marca claims Liverpool are weighing up a potential swoop for Danjuma. Additionally, The Sun names West Ham and Southampton as suitors for him.

Danjuma would be another great Palace signing

Palace clearly need a rebuild following Roy Hodgson’s exit, so they deserve credit for the way they’ve gone about things so far. 

Marc Guehi, Joachim Andersen, Michael Olise and Conor Gallagher (loan) are all exciting new faces added to the Vieira’s group.

Danjuma would be another new face to excite supporters. However, right now reports don’t indicate any kind of move yet for the £13.7million wide player. 

He’s such a huge goal threat with his runs from the left wing into the centre of the pitch. His pace, dribbling and clinical fishing makes him a standout.
