Swap deal for Ademola Lookman might be too good to turn down

Swap deal for Ademola Lookman might be too good to turn down

Crystal Palace slumped to yet another defeat at the weekend as Roy Hodgson’s side lost out to a Chelsea team that just had too much quality in the end. 

The south London side have now lost seven games in the league and but not for the terrible form of Newcastle, Southampton and Burnley, they would be further down the table.

Wilfried Zaha once again failed to score at the weekend and it’s becoming incredibly clear that if he isn’t at his best, Palace just simply don’t have a chance of winning. In what could be an interesting development, The Sun is reporting that Everton are interested in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and could include Ademola Lookman in a deal that would see the former Charlton man join Crystal Palace.

The Breakdown

Wan-Bissaka has been a star for Palace this season and has arguably been the club’s best player behind Zaha. Therefore, it may seem absurd that the club would let him leave but if they can lure Lookman south, they would have a player who could turn out to be a star for the club and one that could keep them in the league.

Lookman has found it hard to get into the Everton side even though he looked superb while playing for German side, RB Leipzig last season. The former Charlton man scored five goals in 11 games while also grabbing four assists.

He might not be the striker that the club needs but he could certainly lighten the load of Zaha and furthermore, Palace would be able to offer him guaranteed minutes.
