Safety is all but secure for Crystal Palace once again this season but the disappointment of the team not being able to push on has been obvious from the fans perspective. Boring, isn’t it? Enduring life in the Premier League rather than enjoying it.
Roy Hodgson has failed to push his talented squad further up the Premier League table as results have been inconsistent all season long.
That was largely down to the fact that Crystal Palace lacked a reliable striker at the beginning of the season and that cannot be an issue once again next campaign. We’ve been talking about this for far too long now.
Indeed, it’s obvious to say that Jordan Ayew, Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham just aren’t consistent enough, meaning the Eagles must assess other options. After trying (as per the Daily Mirror) in January, Crystal Palace should again explore the possibility of signing Tammy Abraham.
Abraham, (who is valued at £13.5 million on Transfermarkt) is currently the third top goalscorer in the Championship and hence has a number of clubs looking at him.
The Chelsea loanee moved to Aston Villa after spending a year with Swansea, where he scored eight times. Skip forward almost a year, and Tammy Abraham has 21 Championship goals to his name, proving once more, that he is a trusty source of goals, too good to sit on the bench at Stamford Bridge.
After reportedly registering their interest in him during the January transfer window, Crystal Palace were rebuffed in their attempts and therefore settled with another Chelsea loanee – Michy Batshuayi.
With it surely being more than likely the Belgian forward will move on at the end of the season, the need for a striker is again urgent for the Eagles.
Tammy Abraham is still only 21-years-old, has a history of scoring goals whatever club he finds himself at and could be the man for Crystal Palace going forward.
