Championship Star Now On Crystal Palace’s Radar: Can He Ease Their Woes?

Crystal Palace are looking to turn the table in the Premier League by reviving their form, having lost all their seven matches so far this term. This has not only left them at the bottom of the pile in the top flight but has also been embarassing for the Eagles, for their inability to score a single goal so far.

However, the squad has not lost its hope of revival the season and they might be on their way to add a few new faces to the squad to provide them with the much-needed impetus to score goals and get themselves out of the dreaded relegation zone. Currently, they are eyeing one of the top strikers in the form of Gary Hooper, who is playing for the Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The 29-year-old centre-forward has been in good form of late and has become the subject of attention from a number of sides in the Premier League as well as Championship. The player has shown his mettle for his side in the second tier and might head into the top flight, given one of his potential suitors makes a good enough bid to bag him in January.

The Englishman has scored 20 goals so far in 43 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday and has been in prolific form in front of goal

His predatory instincts might be a big boost for the Eagles and they might be quite desperate to sign him to add some significant firepower, helping their side to claw their way back out of the disastrous position they are currently in.

The striker is known for his ability to score goals and laying assists for teammates, providing them with chances to score goals. His darting runs into the opposition box and the ability to finish from a variety of angles makes him the right candidate to for Crystal Palace, who are desperately seeking a genuine goal scorer to lift them out of the horrendous situation they are presently in.

It might not be a very easy task for the Eagles to land the player at Selhurst Park in the future, as Sheffield Wednesday might not be willing to let go of their prized possession. However, a substantial bid might do the job for the demeaned Premier League outfit and they might be successful in landing the man they want so dearly.

But can Hooper ease Palace’s troubles?
