Players from the relegated sides Crystal Palace could target The 2018/19 season is over and Crystal Palace can begin to plan for the new campaign later this year. Palace managed to secure a comfortable midtable finish in the Premier League, with Roy Hodgson doing a superb job in charge of the club. There is no doubt that Palace have a busy summer ahead of them, with plenty of players to come in and out of Selhurst Park over the next few months before the start of the 2019/20 season. Hodgson will be hoping to build a squad capable of kicking on from midtable and potentially pushing to become a top 10 side, competing with the likes of Watford, Leicester and Wolves.

Liverpool have made an enquiry to Cardiff City about the availability of their goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, according to a report from Wales Online.

With Simon Mignolet hoping to leave Anfield in the summer and Loris Karius likely to stay with Besiktas, the Reds have a vacancy for a back-up goalkeeper and it looks like Etheridge is one of the players they are looking at to come in as the deputy to Alisson.

The 29-year-old played all 38 league games for the Bluebirds last season, keeping ten clean sheets, but ultimately, that wasn’t enough to keep them in the Premier League.

Since Cardiff’s relegation, Etheridge has been linked to numerous clubs, with Aston Villa even having an £8m bid for him rejected by Neil Warnock’s side.

Whether Liverpool are willing to outbid that amount in order to sign a back up remains to be seen, but it does look like at least one new goalkeeper will arrive at Anfield this summer.

Liverpool make Matt Targett enquiry.
Liverpool have reportedly approached Southampton over the possibility of signing Matt Targett this summer, according to 90min. The Saints look set for a major summer shake-up under Ralph Hasenhuttl, with the Austrian willing to sell up to eight first-team players, including Targett. The Reds reportedly see the 23-year-old as an excellent back-up option to the impressive Andy Robertson, with Alberto Moreno set to leave the club in the coming weeks when his deal expires.
