Crystal Palace supporters in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating the 2018/19 Premier League campaign, what with their team seeking to improve upon their solid 11th place finish last time round.
The Eagles were in disarray at the start of the season in losing each of their opening seven league matches, with Frank de Boer sacked as manager after just the first four. And while Roy Hodgson failed to win any of his opening three games, the ex-England boss then led the club to 44 points from their final 31 Premier League matches of the campaign, eventually finishing 11th in the division and 11 points clear of the bottom three.
Thus, there are many excited and indeed expectant Palace fans up and down the country, several of whom are likely to be interested by reports linking their side with a move for Liverpool’s Marko Grujic.
The midfielder spent the second half of last season on loan at Championship club Cardiff City and played a part in helping Neil Warnock’s side earn promotion to the top-flight, scoring once in 14 games for the South Wales outfit.
And the 22-year-old could well be set for his first proper stint at Premier League level given the interest from Hodgson’s Palace, but with the Eagles somewhat struggling in the middle of the park, it would be a big risk to land Grujic given he has just eight top tier appearances to his name.
In fact, Palace should forget about the midfielder, and instead seek to land one of these TWO Liverpool stars this summer…
