Cook hopeful of CPFC Wan-Bissaka and Gallagher summer interest


HLTCO presenter Dan Cook believes that Crystal Palace will hope to sign Conor Gallagher and Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer.

What’s the word?

In the January transfer window, it’s clear that both players were viewed as possible targets by the Premier League club. Indeed, there was talk of a deadline-day loan move for the former Eagles loanee.

On top of that, Wan-Bissaka was linked with a move away from Manchester United throughout the previous month, with his former club touted as a possible destination.

And while these deals never came to pass, that doesn’t mean that the Eagles won’t push to get them done in the summer. Indeed, while talking on the HLTCO podcast, Cook claimed that Palace may feel as though a deal for either or both players could be achievable later this year.

He explained: “There were other players that we were seemingly interested in. I think the two most high-profile of those were undeniably Conor Gallagher and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

“Neither of those moves materialised, but I do think there is probably a degree of hope within the Crystal Palace hierarchy that potentially, once again, coming towards the summer, we can look to re-evaluate and potentially go in for both or one of those two players.”

Is Marc Guehi worth £65m?





Good deals?

Palace ended January with both Naouirou Ahamada and Albert Sambi Lokonga arriving. However, the latter is only on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season.

With that in mind, the club could look to bring in a new midfielder next summer when Lokonga departs, and Gallagher could make a great fit – after all, he spent a season on loan last term and impressed at Selhurst Park with 11 goal contributions in 34 league outings.

Back in defence, there may be more need for a new right-back to come in, with Nathaniel Clyne and Joel Ward the obvious options right now – though both are out of contract in the summer.

Of course, Wan-Bissaka is a former Palace player himself, and there has been plenty of talk about how he could be keen on a return. While he’s played more games of late, he still only has eight league appearances this term, so he could well be on the market this summer.

Therefore, we don’t believe that any hope behind the scenes at Palace for either of these two players would be displaced.
