What a turnaround in fortune it’s been. In the quarter-final of the FA Cup and looking upwards in the Premier League, Crystal Palace after a poor start, could soon have a very memorable season indeed.
With talent all over the pitch in every position, the right signings over the summer could lead to Crystal Palace really pushing the rest of the league, showing what they’re capable of.
One signing who may not steal the headlines but would make a strong addition at least is ADO Den Haag centre-back Wilfried Kanon.
Kanon, (who is valued at £2.2 million on Transfermarkt) would only add to the quality of the Eagles back-line, as back-up to the likes of James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho.
Wilfried Kanon, an international team-mate of Wilfried Zaha, was considered a target (as per the Sun) for Crystal Palace in the January transfer window and although a move never came to fruition, he should still be an option for the Eagles.
Roy Hodgson could certainly do with recruiting another tough centre-back, which Wilfried Kanon fills the criteria for.
The 25-year-old has done a stellar job for his Eredivisie side this season, helping to preserve five clean-sheets in 23 outings this season. Indeed, Crystal Palace right now don’t have a great deal of back-up in their ranks and could be found out with a long injury to one of their centre-backs.
Alongside Sakho, the two could form one of the best defensive partnerships the club have ever seen and ensure the relegation battles of the past are no more. A powerful enforcer, there’s no doubt he’d fit in well in South London and prove to be a wonderful addition.
Wilfried Kanon has shown he looks to be ready for a bigger challenge and that’s exactly what he would get with a move to Selhurst Park.
