Crystal Palace interested in Ashley Barnes

  Crystal Palace interested in Ashley Barnes Crystal Palace are eyeing a move for Burnley striker Ashley Barnes, according to a report from ESPN FC. The 27-year-old has scored six goals in 27 games this season, including a brace against the Eagles, and it looks like Sam Allardyce is considering making a bid to bring him to Selhurst Park. The striker has two years left on his contract at Burnley and Sean Dyche is keen to keep him at Turf Moor but if Palace make a bid, there is every chance that the Clarets could cash in. Newly promoted Newcastle United are also looking at the striker as they plan for life back in the Premier League and their manager Rafa Benitez has already admitted that he wants to add players with top-flight experience to his squad. Logic Remy’s move to Palace has been a failure so the club will need to bring in another forward to ease the burden on Christian Benteke.

Newcastle considering move for Burnley striker Barnes

  Newcastle considering move for Burnley striker Barnes Newcastle United are reportedly considering making a £6 million offer to sign Burnley striker Ashley Barnes this summer. According to a report from the Mirror today, the Magpies are weighing up a move for the 27-year-old, who has been in good form so far this season for the Clarets. Newcastle may be looking to add proven Premier League quality to their squad this summer, along with added depth in their squad, and Barnes could very well be a plausible option if they choose to pursue their interest in him. However, there may be a reluctance for Burnley to sell one of their three first-team strikers, given that star man Andre Gray is being touted with a move away given the short time remaining on his deal at the club. Barnes has stepped up on a number of occasions for Sean Dyche’s side this season and at just £6m, would be a shrewd addition for Newcastle.

Crystal Palace eyeing up move for Celtic defender .
Crystal Palace are interested in making a move for Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic, according to a report in the Croydon Advertiser. Simunovic, 22, played a major role in Celtic’s domestic treble this season and it is understood that Palace will need to bid in the region of £10million for Celtic to consider to sell the defender. The Croatian International, who played in Celtic’s 2-1 victory over Aberdeen in the Cup final, scored one goal in the Scottish League this season. The young defender joined Celtic from Dinamo Zagreb in August 2015 and has been heavily involved in the first-team since his arrival, especially under Brendan Rodgers. His impressive form has led to interest from various European clubs who are monitoring the centre-back’s progress. Italian club Torino tried to sign him last summer, but Palace are thought to be the front-runners in this transfer window. The Daily Mail is also reporting that rival Premier League clubs Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion are considering a move for the defender, so Palace need to act quickly before another team submits a bid.
