Crystal Palace started their season with a poor showing against West Bromwich Albion at home which resulted in a 0-1 defeat for the Eagles. The South Londoners have been further hit by the departure of star winger Yannick Bolasie as the Congolese international joined Everton for a fee around £28m. Even though Alan Pardew brought in Andros Townsend from Newcastle United earlier this summer, the former Newcastle boss should still look for a direct replacement for Bolasie.
In this article, we will be pointing out three players the Eagles should look for.
The 24-year-old was destined for big things from a very young age but could never really reach the heights he was expected to. With age as his biggest friend, Ince still has time on his hand and can showcase his talent on a bigger stage. The former Football League Young Player of the Year had a short loan spell with Eagles in 2014 and then moved to the Premier League permanently with Hull City from Blackpool. The move did not go well for the young winger as he ended up in Derby County eventually. He was one of the standout performers at Pride Park last season and would be a great addition to Crystal Palace.
The Serbian made his move to Liverpool two years back from Benfica and in his first season at the club, he saw his talent getting wasted being played out of position by Brendan Rodgers time and time again. The young winger was then shipped out on loan to Fenerbahce for the last season and due to his struggle with injuries, the loan spell was termed as a flop. Now on the fringes of the Liverpool squad, Markovic needs a move badly. The fleet-footed winger’s quality is undisputed and Crystal Palace should pounce on the opportunity.
The 31-year-old has been at Manchester United for five years now and he could never establish himself as a first-team regular. Boasting plenty of Premier League experience while playing for sides like Watford, Aston Villa and Manchester United over the years, Young can be a huge addition to Crystal Palace. Capable of playing on either flank, brilliant eye for crosses, and versatility- Young has every ingredient to succeed at Selhurst Park. Not rated by new manager Jose Mourinho, the Englishman could be on his move and Crystal Palace should use this to their advantage.
