According to The Express, Crystal Palace are considering a move for Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic as they look to move away from the relegation zone this season.
Our Eagles fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been seriously worried about their plight this year that has seen them go from being well in the top half to hovering precariously above the drop zone thanks to a six-game losing streak.
That, thankfully for them, came to and end at the weekend as the Selhurst Park club finally found some luck in a 3-0 win over Southampton.
Summer signing Christian Benteke got himself on the score-sheet in that game and now the hope will be they can get themselves up the standings.
Indeed, they’ll be likely looking for reinforcements to help them do so in January and it looks as though Ivanovic could be a prime target.
The Premier League winning defender has seen playing time limited at Chelsea in recent weeks thanks to Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 system and if Palace can offer him more minutes for the second half of the season a deal could be on.
Our landlord thinks it would be a decent signing for the Eagles, too, as they look to shore things up at the back.
