Three signings Crystal Palace should make in January
As the January transfer window is fast approaching, Crystal Palace must be targeting reinforcements for their squad in order to push for a top-ten finish in May.
Here are three signings the Eagles should make in the winter transfer window.
The Chelsea loanee is currently sparkling on loan at Aston Villa, with Abraham’s goal tally already in double digits in the Championship.
Abraham is desperate for a move back to the Premier League, and Palace would be an ideal destination due to their hunger for goals and lack of striking depth.
Adding the lethal young Englishman to the Eagles’ ranks on loan would be an excellent move, granting Roy Hodgson more firepower up front in 2019.
The former Crystal Palace player has been frozen out of the first team set-up at Stamford Bridge and is eager to gain regular playing time in the Premier League.
Moses is a powerful, versatile, and experienced option that can play either right wing or right back, a combination that affords Hodgson considerable flexibility.
A hard-working presence on the wing, the Eagles would do well to bring Victor Moses back to Selhurst Park in January.
Crystal Palace’s normally solid defence has appeared shaky at times this season, conceding an unusual amount off of set-piece goals in a soft manner.
Palace should move to sign Liverpool centre-half Joel Matip, a towering presence at the back who has found first-team appearances hard to come by at Anfield this year.
Another central defender to challenge the partnership of James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho would add welcome competition to the Eagles squad, and Matip is an accomplished centre-back with vast experience at the highest level.
