Burke Emerges As Palace Target

Crystal Palace are reportedly set to enter the race to sign West Brom forward Oliver Burke this summer.

The Scotland international has struggled for game-time since joining the Baggies from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig for a reported £14million in 2017 and he is currently on loan at Scottish giants Celtic.

The 21-year-old has impressed during his time at Parkhead, scoring four goals in nine Scottish Premiership appearances, and his form appears to have caught the eye of Palace.

The Eagles are likely to be in the market for a new forward during the summer, particularly if they are unable to turn Michy Batshuayi’s loan move from Chelsea into a permanent deal and Burke could well fit the bill.

West Brom appear to be happy to cash in on the former Nottingham Forest youngster, who featured just three times in the Championship during the first half of the season.

However, there is still potential for Albion’s stance to change, as they are currently without a permanent manager following the departure of Darren Moore earlier this month and any new coach that comes in may opt to keep hold of Burke.
