talkSPORT journalist and transfer insider Alex Crook has revealed that Crystal Palace are now ‘pushing hard’ to sign Morgan Gibbs-White.
The Lowdown: Other interest
It has been reported that both Everton and Nottingham Forest are also interested in signing Gibbs-White, but Wolves value him at £25m.
Hailed as ‘unreal’ last season by European football expert and journalist Alex Barker, the midfield dynamo enjoyed a great loan spell at Sheffield United, scoring an impressive 12 goals and 10 assists in all competitions for the Blades (Transfermarkt), subsequently being named as their Player of the Year (POTY).
The Latest: Palace pushing
Taking to Twitter, Crook has revealed that the Selhurst Park outfit are now ‘pushing hard’ to beat the Toffees and Forest to the signing of Gibbs-White:
“Race for #Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White heating up. #CPFC pushing hard to beat #EFC and #NFFC.”
The Verdict: Get it done
After Player of the Season (POTS) Conor Gallagher returned to Chelsea following his loan spell with the Eagles, Patrick Vieira is in need of another big midfield reinforcement, and Gibbs-White could be the perfect addition to his squad given his 22 goal contributions last term.
Should Crystal Palace sign Gibbs-White?
Yes, the Premier League is a different level to the Championship, but the Englishman already has experience of playing in the top flight, and this could be the campaign where he really kicks on.
Nonetheless, he is still only 22 years of age, and so has the potential to flourish under the management of midfield legend Vieira, making this one to watch in the coming days.
