The Lowdown: Doucoure profiled
How many signings do Palace need this summer?
The Latest: Palace interest
The BBC shared a story on Monday, name-checking Palace with an interest in former right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The report added that Doucoure is also a target, with Patrick Vieira keen to bolster his midfield options ahead of his second season in charge.
The Verdict: Shrewd move?
Midfield does seem to be an area of the pitch where Palace could do with strengthening despite a positive first year under Vieira.
The Eagles look set to lose Conor Gallagher when he returns to Chelsea following his season-long loan spell, while the likes of Cheikhou Kouyate, James McArthur and Jeffrey Schlupp are all out of contract in the summer.
Therefore, bringing in a young talent like Doucoure, who has been ‘destroying everyone’ this season, could prove to be a wise move bot in the short and long run.
