Premier League side Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville following the departure of Eagles’ forward Wilfried Zaha this week.
That is according to The Daily Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, who claims that Summerville could act as a replacement for the former Palace man.
Summerville enjoyed something of a breakout season in West Yorkshire last term, scoring 5 and assisting 6 from 33 appearances across all competitions. Despite these efforts – as well as those of fellow winger and young prospect Wilfried Gnonto – the Whites suffered relegation to the Championship after a campaign in which they struggled overall.
Summerville’s impressive displays for Leeds, naturally, drew the attention of other clubs – with former club Feyenoord already being linked with the 21-year-old during this year’s summer transfer window.
Now, top-flight outfit Palace appear to have joined the list of Summerville’s potential suitors, as per a tweet from McGrath.
“Crystal Palace have been assessing midfielders during the window. They’ve looked at Ruben Vargas at FC Augsburg as a possible loan,” McGrath wrote.
“Leeds’ Crysencio Summerville is admired but would need to determine #LUFC plans for him next season.”
Considering the reputation that the South London club have made for themselves in developing young talent in recent years, Summerville could certainly choose a worse club to move to in this window.
Yet there is no doubt that the Elland Road faithful will be keen to see the young Dutchman stay and hopefully sparkle in the English second-tier, as Whites boss Daniel Farke attempts to construct a squad capable of an immediate Premier League return.
