Crystal Palace should snap up this forgotten man

Crystal Palace fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting more frustrated by the day.

Their side have secured two signings so far this summer –  a loan deal for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and a permanent deal for Ajax defender Jairo Riedewald.

It’s been underwhelming to say the least for new boss Frank de Boer, who is perhaps more concerned in keeping his star striker Christian Benteke.

The Belgian has been recently a reported target of Everton as the Merseysiders continue to splash the cash this summer.

One player who is certain to be on the move in the coming weeks is Arsenal’s forgotten man, Mattieu Debuchy.

The 31-year-old has been in the Emirates shadows since Hector Bellerin came to prominence in 2014 and the suggestions are that a proposed move to Nice has fallen through.

De Boer should capitalise on the collapse by tempting the Frenchman with a move to South London.

Despite his disappointing spell at Arsenal, Debuchy is a dependable right-back.

He excelled during his time at Newcastle and was a consistent member of the France national side..

The Eagles could swoop in and save Debuchy from his North London nightmare.

Palace fans, we want to hear from you! Think Debuchy is a solid fit? Rather keep Joel Ward? Or is there someone else you fancy? Let us know in the comments!
