Crystal Palace have made contact with Eddie Howe ahead of him possibly becoming Roy Hodgson’s replacement at Selhurst Park.
That’s according to an exclusive report from Football Insider, who have been informed by a Palace source that the club have spoken to the former Bournemouth manager.
Should Palace get rid of Hodgson this summer?
Transfer Tavern take
This summer could well be vital for Palace both on and off the pitch, so bringing in a young manager like Howe could be a shrewd move.
The average age of the Palace squad is 28.8, which is the highest in the Premier League. Twelve players are reportedly out of contract over the coming months as well, so a summer rebuild appears to be on the cards.
Howe has enjoyed previous success of rebuilding a squad when he took Bournemouth from League Two to the Premier League in the space of six seasons, so he could be the ideal man to take over from Hodgson.
It also seems as if he could be given a handy transfer kitty ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, so that may tempt him to south London over a move to Glasgow.
