From France: Palace have held talks with one of Europe’s hottest prospects

Crystal Palace are keen on strengthening this summer and their fans in the Transfer Tavern will be hoping to see a couple of new additions, as well as keeping hold of their star men.

Roy Hodgson managed to guide the Eagles to what looked like an unlikely stay of execution in the Premier League last season, which has seen him be offered a new deal to remain at Selhurst Park.

The former England manager will be desperate for his side to start the new campaign in a completely different way to last and it is believed that a goalkeeper could still be on his list this summer.

Despite having signed Vicente Guaita after a long-drawn-out process, reports in France are starting to suggest that the Eagles have been holding talks with Toulouse about the prospect of signing Alban Lafont.

L’Equipe are claiming that their hopes of signing one of Europe’s hottest prospects in between the sticks have been given a boost as the Ligue One side have completed a deal for another goalkeeper, which could allow for Lafont to head to the Premier League.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Palace fans in the Tavern will be delighted that the club is being active in the transfer window and is looking at rebuilding a position that has needed doing for some time.

Lafont is regarded as one of the best young goalkeepers in the game currently and has been linked with some of Europe’s biggest clubs in the past, however, Palace seems to be the obvious destination for him at the moment and the locals will be over the moon if they get him.
