Crystal Palace will be delighted with yesterday’s performance against Fulham as they managed to secure a 2-0 win in front of home support at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles managed to secure the signing of Michy Batshuayi on transfer deadline day, which will be sure to boost their chances of avoiding relegation in the current campaign.
And, it appears as if the London club are already thinking about the summer transfer window, as according to The Sun (via Tribal Football), Crystal Palace will go back in for Gary Cahill in the summer.
Sadly, things could go one of two ways if the experienced Englishman joins the club, as current players may fear for their place in the side, while it will also bring a lot of joy to Selhurst Park.
With that being said, here are the potential consequences of signing Gary Cahill in the summer…
Mamadou Sakho has been one of the standout performers for Crystal Palace in the current campaign, with a number of world-class performances to his name already.
However, he could soon become unsettled if Cahill ends up rocking up at Selhurst Park as they’ll both be fighting for a starting place in the same position, and the Englishman was always one of England’s first choice central defenders during Hodgson’s reign as England manager, so would inevitably be near the top of his ranking at Palace.
ROY HODGSON OVER THE MOON
Roy Hodgson and Gary Cahill built a very strong bond on the international stage with England as the Crystal Palace boss named him as captain, so it’s clear to see how highly he rates the defender.
Of course, the 71-year-old would love nothing more than to welcome the central defender to the club as he’d provide the Eagles with a big defensive boost, as well as becoming a leader on the field.
