Crystal Palace: Fans unimpressed by Jamal Lewis transfer links

Crystal Palace: Fans unimpressed by Jamal Lewis transfer links - Crystal Palace Transfer Rumours

Crystal Palace have signed Nathan Ferguson on a free transfer, but they are looking to add some more defenders to the squad and a recent report suggests that they are keen on Jamal Lewis.

According to Football Insider and as tweeted by Palace Xtra, Norwich City are holding out for a fee of around £20m for the 22 year-old, in whom Palace are now interested. Premier League champions Liverpool were in the frame for him but did not fancy paying that much for the Canaries left-back.

This does not seem like the most sensible move for the Eagles to make as they currently have Patrick van Aanholt as their starting left-back, as well as Tyrick Mitchell as cover.

Van Aanholt has been good in both defence and attack as he has managed 1.5 successful tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 1.1 key passes a game, per WhoScored. He has also contributed three goals and two assists, the joint-third and joint-second highest tallies among Roy Hodgson’s squad for those respective metrics in 2019/20.

Therefore, to spend £20m on a player who might not even start seems like a waste of money, especially when the south London side have only spent £17.51m in the last four transfer windows over the previous two years, per Transfermarkt.

Here is what these Palace fans said following the reported interest in Lewis:
