Despite having ridden on Wilfried Zaha’s brilliance for the past few seasons, Crystal Palace are finally ready (as per the Daily Mail) to let go of their prized possession this summer at the right price.
Indeed, there is seemingly too much interest mounting on him to ignore and even the Eagles cannot hold him back anymore. Well, providing they get £80m, of course.
While they seem to be prepared to let him go, Palace will definitely bring a huge amount for their star, if he were to depart. Not only because they want a big profit, but they’ll need to use those resources into signing a proper replacement or two. So it’s of little surprise that, according to further reports from the Daily Mail, they want Aston Villa star Jack Grealish to be the sizzling Zaha’s replacement.
Grealish has been the rising star from the Championship, lighting up Villa Park with some moments of utter brilliance this campaign. He’s scored 6 and assisted 6 so far (as per Transfermarkt), but it’s irresistible demeanour on the ball which has won over many plaudits. Grealish can weave through defences with the ball, is creative with his incisive balls and is capable of scoring some stunning goals.
Frankly, he’s absolutely magic at times.
If the Eagles want to retain Zaha’s ability on the ball to win them penalties (we joke), Grealish is the perfect man to keep the fans dazzled. If the 23-year-old’s influence in glowing up Villa’s attractive attacking game has proven anything, he can definitely spice up Palace’s attack with his diligent work.
The youngster’s swagger is something which will be loved at Selhurst Park. If the Eagles want to replace Zaha by making a statement on a player who can recreate the sparks the Ivorian brought to their attack, Grealish is the man to rely upon.
