Crystal Palace interested in Reece James

Crystal Palace managed to make a big statement at the Emirates earlier on today as they came away with a valuable three points, with James McArthur grabbing the winning goal. 

The Eagles could still do with summer transfer window as things have been far from perfect at the pinnacle of the attack, with other areas requiring strengthening too.

What’s the News?

According to The Sun, Crystal Palace pencilled Chelsea’s Reece James in as a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Although, it looks as if the London club will need to pay a large fee if they are to secure the services of the Englishman, as Brighton had a £10 million bid rejected by the Blues.

He’s been in terrific form at the DW Stadium in recent times and he even managed to run Leeds United ragged last time out at Elland Road, so he looks to be the real deal.

The Verdict:

Reece James, who is valued at £900k (by Transfermarkt), has established himself as one of the stars in the Championship this season having produced three goals and three assists.

He’s arguably one of the most promising players in the whole of English football and he’s already turning into a star, so it would be huge if Crystal Palace manage to land him in the summer.

Although, Chelsea’s transfer ban may force them into using a number of their youth players next season, with Reece James no doubt being one of the first names on Maurizio Sarri’s list.

Crystal Palace fans, surely it will be extremely difficult to land Reece James this summer? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
