Crystal Palace: Eagles make contact for Sasa Lukic

Crystal Palace: Eagles make contact for Sasa Lukic -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace have made contact with Torino over a potential move for midfielder Sasa Lukic.

The Lowdown: Lukic profiled

Lukic has been with Torino since 2016 and is primarily a central midfielder who can also play in holding or attacking roles.

Valued at a Transfermarkt career-high £13.5m, the Torino captain has made 150 appearances for the club, contributing to 18 goals.

The Serbia international recently turned 26 and has previously been labelled as a player of the “highest quality” by World Football Scout, and it looks as if Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman are working on a possible Selhurst Park switch for the player.

The Latest: Palace linked with Lukic

Sport Witness relayed an update from Tuttosport regarding Lukic on Monday.

They claimed that Palace have made contact with Torino over a move for the Serbian, who is growing frustrated with the Serie A club over what he believes to be broken promises regarding an improved contract. The report adds that Torino value the midfielder at €20m (£16.85m).

The Verdict: Needed?

The Eagles have already spent big on one midfielder this summer in £21m man Cheick Doucoure, but there could be room for another in Lukic.

The 26-year-old appears to be a box-to-box central midfielder, with Patrick Vieira having just Will Hughes and James McArthur as out-and-out central midfield options.

Palace fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season?

Therefore, bringing in Lukic could be a shrewd move and possibly one to watch closely, with the player seemingly unhappy with his current employers.
