C/Palace Ahead Of Wolves, Leeds In Race For Osayi-Samuel

Crystal Palace are ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United in the race for Super Eagles and Fenerbahce right-back Bright Osayi-Samuel.

He raised eyebrows when he left England in January 2021, to join Fenerbahce and has picked up great experience while in Turkey.

During his time in Turkey, he has represented the club in Champions League qualifying, as well as the Europa League and Europa Conference League.

Osayi-Samuel’s best moment in a Fenerbahce shirt came when they won the Turkish cup last season, beating Istanbul Basaksehir 2-0 in the final.

However, his adventure in Turkey could soon come to an end as TEAMtalk can exclusively reveal that Palace are strongly considering bringing the defender back to England.

Palace recruitment chiefs have been impressed by Osayi-Samuel’s solid performances this season, which have helped Fenerbahce go top of the league table.

Also they have advanced from their Europa Conference League group in first place.

Palace have been attracted to the possible signing due to the fact that Osayi-Samuel’s contract expires in June 2025.

The Eagles are hoping this will help them land him for a reduced price next year.

However, Palace are not the only Premier League club keeping tabs on the Nigeria international. Wolves, as well as Championship side Leeds, have also expressed an interest in capturing him over the past few weeks.

He began his professional career at Blackpool and went on to make 79 appearances for them before landing at Queens Park Rangers in August 2017.

He spent three and a half years at Loftus Road, playing 115 games scoring 13 goals and providing 13 assists.
