Crystal Palace managed to secure all three points against Fulham at Selhurst Park last time out, which helped them move up the table and away from the relegation zone.
The Eagles will be delighted that they managed to secure the services of Michy Batshuayi during the January transfer window as he has the ability to take them places this season.
However, it appears as if the London club may lose one of their star players in the summer transfer window, as according to The Sun, Pep Guardiola wants to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
So, with a key player potentially departing at the end of the season, it would make sense for Roy Hodgson to bring another exciting talent to the club to replace him.
According to reliable journalist Alan Nixon’s personal Twitter account, Crystal Palace had their top men watching Reece James. The youngster is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic from Premier League giants Chelsea.
Indeed, the Englishman has established himself as one of the best full-backs in the Championship this season at the age of 19. He has all the ingredients to become a future star in the Premier League, with pace, skill, crossing and tackling being his strongest attributes at this moment in time. Palace supporters love the pace and attacking qualities that Wan-Bissaka provides at Selhurst Park, so they’ll absolutely love Reece James.
Of course, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has developed into one of the best full-backs in the Premier League in recent times, but a potential £30 million offer for the Englishman may be too hard for Palace to turn down. And, with their top men already keeping an eye on James this season, perhaps they’re already planning ahead for his departure.
James has the potential to become a future hero at Selhurst Park as one of the most highly-rated full-backs in English football. He’s received rave reviews in the Championship and could easily slot into the Premier League already at this stage in his career, so James could well be the man to take Wan-Bissaka’s throne.
