Crystal Palace consider moves for Demarai Gray and Arnaut Danjuma

Crystal Palace are considering a move for Everton winger Demarai Gray and Tottenham Hotspur loanee Arnaut Danjuma, according to the Daily Mail.

The Eagles are planning to strengthen their squad this summer following last season’s sensational turnaround after Roy Hodgson rescued the club from relegation trouble and steered them to a mid-table finish.

There are also question marks lingering over the long-term future of Wilfried Zaha, who is expected to leave Selhurst Park when his contract runs out at the end of this month.

Palace are already lining up replacements, with Gray and Danjuma topping their wish list, but the Eagles will need to raise funds through player sales before making incoming transfers.

Gray could leave Everton this summer due to the club’s precarious financial situation despite playing a leading role in their relegation survival last season.

The 26-year-old rippled the net four times and provided one assist in 33 Premier League games as Sean Dyche’s side escaped relegation with a final-day victory over Bournemouth.

However, the Toffees are willing to consider offers for the newly capped Jamaica international, who is attracting interest from rival clubs, including Palace.

Gray has also been linked with a big money move to Saudi Arabia, who are on a quest to lure several Europe-based stars to the Middle East. 

Al-Hilal, who have already recruited Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves and Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly, are amongst the Saudi-based clubs looking to lure Gray to the Gulf nation.

Villarreal forward Danjuma, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Tottenham, is also on Palace’s radar.

The Netherlands international scored two goals in 12 appearances across all competitions but was unable to help Spurs qualify for Europe.

However, Palace’s budget will be limited without offloading players, while cash generated from sales will likely be reinvested into strengthening the squad.

They have already completed the signing of former Bournemouth midfielder Jefferson Lerma on a free transfer and are eyeing a move for highly-rated Torino defender Perr Schuurs.
