Gary Cahill set to join Crystal Palace
Having failed to command regular place in Maurizio Sarri’s team, it is expected that experienced defender Gary Cahill will be on the lookout for a new suitor and that has been the case since the start of the January transfer market.
Transfer media reported two weeks back that Thierry Henry was hopeful of bringing him to Monaco this month, however, the move won’t materialize as the Frenchman was sacked by his employers during the week.
Cahill is also said to be drawing Claudio Ranieri’s attention. The Fulham manager hopes to lift his team out of relegation zone and he believes the experienced defender will have positive influence on the rest of the team as the season draws closer to its end.
The latest report concerning the former Three Lions captain suggested Crystal Palace are keen on his services. The Premier League team are not doing too well at the moment but they want to correct it by signing quality and experience players.
The Sun revealed that Roy Hodgson is interested in the former Aston Villa man and a bid has been submitted to Maurizio Sarri.
Cahill, 32, is a reliable defender who can help the Eagles achieve their mission to avoid the drop by the end of the season.
Should Palace eventually lure the defender to Selhurst Park this week, Hodgson may decide to sanction Dann’s proposed move to Craven Cottage.
The Eagles centre-back has been linked with a switch to Fulham but Palace are reluctant to let him go because there is no capable replacement for him.
