Crystal Palace eye move for Hull City winger Jaden Philogene

Crystal Palace could be set for a major rebuilding in the summer transfer window under Oliver Glasner. 

The situation and Nottingham Forest and Everton puts the Eagles in a comfortable position. A few wins from here on will see them secure Premier League safety, although they should not have been in this position given the quality of players they have.

There are suggestions that Palace could be forced to sell some of their star players after a poor campaign. But if that happens, they need to replace them properly.

In recent weeks, the Eagles have been linked with players like Argentine winger Matias Soule and Nigerian defender Bright Osayi-Samuel, and now a new player has been linked with a move.

According to a report from London News Online, Crystal Palace are tracking Hull City’s exciting winger Jaden Philogene.

The 22-year-old joined the Tigers from Aston Villa in the summer for a reported £5m fee and signed a four-year deal with the Humberside-based outfit. He is being chased by other Premier League clubs as well, while Villa have first refusal to buy Philogene for a fixed fee of £15m should Hull City move to the Premier League.

Crystal Palace show commitment to sign young players

Philogene is an exciting young talent who has enjoyed an impressive debut campaign for Hull City, scoring eight and picking up six assists.

He scored a “stunning” Rabona against Rotherham in February, and became a “viral sensation”, as described by Claret Villans.

The exciting winger has managed over 70 appearances in the Championship already and can play on both flanks.

The interest doesn’t come as a big surprise as we all know Dougie Freedman, the sporting director of the club, has his fantastic ability for plucking the best young talent out of the Championship.

The likes of Eberechi Eze, Michael Olise and Adam Wharton have dazzled in the Premier League after moving from the Championship, and it seems they are trying to apply a similar strategy to sign Philogene as well.
