Crystal Palace should look to pip Leeds to the signing of this lethal finisher

Crystal Palace should look to pip Leeds to the signing of this lethal finisher

Crystal Palace will be hoping for an excellent season next time out as they seek to build on the success instilled within the team from Roy Hodgson.

The Eagles put together an excellent run of form following a miserable start to the campaign under Frank De Boer, and Hodgson will be confident he can bring some success to the club in the coming 10 months.

Of course, new signings are going to need to be made for the club if they are to continue to progress, and adding players in vital positions, such as up front, will be crucial.

One player we at the Tavern have been casting an eye over is Derby County striker Matej Vydra, who has been on the radar of Leeds United this summer.

The pacey forward has really found his feet this season after sealing a big money move last year to Pride Park, and ran out as the Championship’s top scorer last season.

Palace are going to need to add further goals to their squad, and with Christian Benteke not always firing on all cylinders, signing someone like Vydra would be a shrewd move indeed.

Quick, good in front of goal, and with a point to prove in the Premier League, the Derby striker would be an excellent signing if the Eagles could pull off a deal.

Palace fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
