Opinion: Crystal Palace would bag perfect Wilfried Zaha replacement with swoop for Said Benrahma

Opinion: Crystal Palace would bag perfect Wilfried Zaha replacement with swoop for Said Benrahma - Crystal Palace

As well as up front, Crystal Palace could also probably do with strengthening their squad out wide. 

Away from Wilfried Zaha, who continues to be linked with a move away from Selhurst Park (Sky Sports), and Andros Townsend, the south London club do not have too many other options.

And according to TEAMtalk, they could look to do just that after watching Brentford’s Said Benrahma closely in recent weeks.

The 23-year-old has impressed for Thomas Frank’s side this season, scoring 10 goals in the Championship while setting up another 14 along the way (WhoScored).

Looking at Roy Hodgson’s current options, that sort of goal threat is exactly what the Crystal Palace boss needs heading into the next campaign, especially if he ends up losing Zaha.

With Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham also said to be interested in Benrahma’s services (also per TEAMtalk), it will not be an easy transfer to pull off.

But when looking at what the Algeria international can do on the flank with his pace and trickery, Crystal Palace would be crazy not to go all out for him or a player of a similar profile in the summer.

Whether Zaha remains at Selhurst Park or not, the Eagles need attacking reinforcements. And Benrahma could be the man to get the ball rolling.
