Crystal Palace target Simon Mignolet keen on Liverpool summer exit

Crystal Palace target Simon Mignolet keen on Liverpool summer exit Crystal Palace have been handed a potential boost as Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, a reported summer target for the Eagles, is still hoping to leave the club this summer, according to a report from the Evening Standard. The Belgian has found himself demoted to the role of the backup goalkeeper at Anfield following the arrival of Alisson Becker last summer and after a season of sitting on the bench, the 31-year-old is looking for a move away. Mignolet has reportedly attracted some interest from Palace, who are said to be prepared to pay around £8 million for the former Sunderland star.

Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Kemar Roofe from Leeds United.

According to claims from Sky Sports, the Eagles have set their sights on a deal for the forward, who caught the eye in the Championship under Marcelo Bielsa last season.

Roofe was a key part of the Leeds side that came close to securing promotion, finishing third and proceeding to bow out of the play-offs in the semi-finals against Derby County.

The 26-year-old’s future at Elland Road is currently uncertain. Although contract talks have taken place, no agreement has yet been reached, with the ex-Oxford United man’s current deal expiring next year.

Roofe led the line well for Leeds, notching up 14 goals in the league for his side last term, and has evidently attracted interest from clubs in the Premier League.

Sky Sports reports that both Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in recruiting the dynamic front-man, with other Championship clubs also keen to bring him in this summer.

Crystal Palace make bid for Timothy Castagne.
Crystal Palace have made a €20 million bid for Timothy Castagne, according to Sportitalia, via Tribal Football. The Eagles are looking to sign a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who recently joined Manchester United. Former Crystal Palace man Nathaniel Clyne has been linked with filling the void at right-back, but strong interest in Castagne has also emerged. The Atalanta defender is reportedly allowed to leave the Serie A club, but they want an extra €5 million for his services. Castagne is also believed to be slightly reluctant about leaving, however, due to Atalanta qualifying for this season’s Champions League.
