Who has been Palace's best permanent signing?
However, it looks as if he may leave Marseille on a free transfer ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. He has already held talks with Newcastle United and West Ham, with Palace the latest Premier League club to show an interest.
The Latest: Palace links with Kamara
According to reliable journalist Nixon, Palace backer John Textor is ready to splash the cash in the summer to back Patrick Vieira.
It is thought that the Eagles have now entered the race for Kamara’s services, and it doesn’t appear they are put off by the player’s substantial wage demands.
The Verdict: Smart target
Vieira appears to be building for the future at Selhurst Park with a number of exciting additions during his first season as manager, and Kamara could be an ideal signing ahead of the 45-year-old’s second year in charge, looking to take the Eagles to the next level.
With no transfer fee required, Palace could offer the player a lucrative salary, but they may need to pip some Premier League rivals in the race for the Frenchman’s services.
