Crystal Palace: Eagles monitoring Matt O’Riley

Crystal Palace: Eagles monitoring Matt O’Riley -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are thought to be monitoring Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley ahead of a potential move.

The Lowdown: O’Riley profiled

O’Riley, dubbed a ‘silent hero’ and ‘immense’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, made the move to Celtic Park at the beginning of the year from MK Dons and has quickly established himself as a regular under Ange Postecoglou.

The 21-year-old, capable of playing in a variety of midfield roles, has made 32 appearances for the Scottish giants, contributing to 11 goals.

A Denmark international, O’Riley shares the same agent as Palace star Wilfried Zaha, and it looks as if the Eagles are keen on potentially securing his services.

The Latest: Palace links

As per The Sun, the Eagles are monitoring O’Riley after losing hope of signing Conor Gallagher from Chelsea.

The report even adds that Palace chief Dougie Freedman watched the midfielder in Champions League action for the Hoops on Wednesday against RB Leipzig.

The Verdict: Freedman left unimpressed?

O’Riley didn’t exactly have a performance that would have left Freedman excited, with the player being subbed after 75 minutes.

As per SofaScore, the midfielder was Celtic’s worst-rated outfield start along with Daizen Maeda, ending with a 6.4/10 match rating. He picked up a yellow card, lost seven of his 11 duels, gave possession away on nine occasions and had just 35 touches of the ball.

O’Riley has been Celtic’s fourth best-performing player in the Scottish Premiership this season, though, as per WhoScored, so it would make sense for Palace to continue to monitor his development ahead of a potential 2023 move.
