Crystal Palace could only secure a point against Crystal Palace earlier on today, which won’t be frowned upon too much as they were trailing for most of the game.
The Eagles have certainly come on leaps and bounds in recent times as things appear to be heading in the right direction, with consistency being the main aim from here on in.
Indeed, the London club managed to secure the services of Michy Batshuayi on loan last month but it now looks as if they’re already eyeing a possible summer move for an attacker, as according to The Mirror, Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck could move to Crystal Palace providing he is fit.
It’s safe to say that the Englishman hasn’t enjoyed the best of seasons due to injury but he could still be a real asset at Selhurst Park, so here are the potential consequences of signing Danny Welbeck in the summer…
CHRISTIAN BENTEKE GETS SOLD
Christian Benteke has looked average to say the least in the current campaign as he’s yet to score, which can be put down to a mixture of poor finishing and spending time out due to injury.
Indeed, it’s safe to say that Palace can’t keep on relying on the Belgian with goals constantly going missing and he could still attract quite a big fee, despite his recent woes in the English capital.
So, Welbeck’s arrival may well signal the end of the road for Benteke as the Englishman would inevitably be Hodgson’s first choice at the pinnacle of the attack, so trading the Belgian in for cash would make sense.
NEW SELHURST PARK HERO
Welbeck would arguably be playing a big part in Arsenal’s quest for a top four spot if he wasn’t still spending time out on the sidelines due to injury, so there’s no doubt that he can become a hero at a lower ranked club like Palace.
Indeed, the England international has managed to win the Champions League and the Premier League title, as well as scoring goals against some of the world’s best defenders.
Therefore, the Eagles may just be making one of their best signings in recent years if Hodgson secures his services, as his experience, finishing ability and pace would take Palace’s attack to the next level.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
