Crystal Palace: Eagles eyeing Chuba Akpom -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are monitoring Middlesborough forward Chuba Akpom ahead of a potential move, according to The Daily Mail.

The Lowdown: Fine form

Akpom, sponsored by Nike, has been on the books at the Riverside Stadium since 2020 and has made 60 appearances for the Championship side.

He has been enjoying one of his best seasons in front of goal in the second tier, netting 13 times in 19 appearances – more than any other player in the league.

The former Arsenal forward now has 59 senior career goals to his name and is out of contract in the summer, and it looks as if Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman could be interested in a move.

The Latest: Palace interest

The Daily Mail shared a story on Monday regarding Akpom and a possible January transfer, with the player now in-demand.

They said that Palace, along with Premier League rivals Everton and Southampton, are monitoring the 27-year-old following his impressive displays under Michael Carrick.

The Verdict: New forward needed?

Palace are currently the lowest scorers in the top 15 sides in the Premier League, scoring just 17 times in 16 games. Wilfried Zaha is the only player to score more than five goals, however, his future is up in the air with his Selhurst Park contract set to expire in the summer.

Therefore, bringing in a new forward for Patrick Vieira this month could be a wise idea, and someone like Akpom could be a name to watch.
