Crystal Palace: Eagles keen on Guehi

Crystal Palace: Eagles keen on Guehi - Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are keen on signing Chelsea defender Marc Guehi, according to The Athletic.

The Lowdown: Guehi profiled

The 20-year-old centre-back has 18 months of senior football under his belt.

He joined Swansea City during the second half of the 2019/20 campaign and spent the whole of the 2020/21 season in Wales, making a total of 59 appearances during that time.

Guehi, an England Under-21 international, has over two years remaining on his Stamford Bridge deal, worth £4,900-a-week.

His Transfermarkt valuation has skyrocketed over the last 18 months to £9m, and it seems as if the Eagles are tracking his situation.

The Latest: Woosnam and Fifield’s claim

The Athletic’s Matt Woosnam and Dominic Fifield shared an inside story on Nuno Espirito Santo’s move to Selhurst Park falling through on Wednesday.

In that piece, they suggested Guehi is a target for Palace, though it is not clear whether Steve Parish and co are hoping for a loan or permanent move.

The Verdict: Two manager targets know him well

Frank Lampard and Steve Cooper have both re-emerged as candidates to take over at Selhurst Park, and the pair will know Guehi well.

Cooper described Guehi as ‘brilliant’ last month and he was the man who has handed the Blues ace his first taste of senior football.

Lampard was in charge of Chelsea at the time of Guehi sealing his loan moves to Swansea, so you’d expect he would have agreed to the temporary deals with a view towards utilising the youngster further down the line.

Both managers may well end up targeting the youngster, should they take over from Roy Hodgson, but fans will have to remain patient for transfer activity given the current managerial situation.
