Crystal Palace: Eagles in huge battle to sign Terem Moffi

Crystal Palace: Eagles in huge battle to sign Terem Moffi - Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are reportedly ready to battle a couple of Premier League rivals for the signing of in-form Lorient striker Terem Moffi in January.

The Lowdown: Moffi impressing in France

The Nigerian has enjoyed a superb start to the season in France, racking up ten goals in just 13 Ligue 1 starts, with the 2022 World Cup arguably arriving at a bad time for him.

Moffi’s overall record in the French top flight currently stands at 32 in 83 matches, further outlining his quality, and he has scored twice in seven caps for his country, too.

Now, it looks as though the 23-year-old, called “fantastic” by analyst Zach Lowy, could be about to trade France for England.

The Latest: Palace to battle PL rivals

According to Jeunes Footeux [via Sport Witness], Palace are among the suitors for Moffi’s signature, as are Aston Villa and Brighton.

A starting offer of €20million (£17.1m) may be required to get their man, with the influence of Patrick Vieira expected to be the key in enticing him to Selhurst Park.

The Verdict: Extra attacking brilliance

Palace have looked like a talented side this season, playing good football under Vieira and sitting 11th in the table, but a lack of firepower has arguably held them back.

The Eagles have only scored 15 goals in 14 league games to date in 2022/23 and Moffi is someone who could help eradicate that issue, barely even trailing that number by himself.

The Lorient star would be a long-term signing, making the potentially sizeable fee worth it, and he could be the next piece in the jigsaw, in terms of Palace reaching that next level.
