Crystal Palace are considering a monumental move for Manchester City star – The Top Flight

Crystal Palace need a new star in their team. After losing Wilfried Zaha as a free agent, Roy Hodgson needs a player to come in and grab the youngsters by the scruff of the neck to lead them to victory. To do this, the England boss is looking to a team full of winners, Manchester City.

Crystal Palace are considering signing Aymeric Laporte

That’s right, according to Star Sunday, Crystal Palace are considering a move for troubled Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte. A move for a player as great as Laporte would be a true statement of intent from Hodgson and one that tells the top half of the table that Palace is ready to compete with such players.

Given the dominance of players like Nathan Ake, Ruben Dias and John Stones in centre-back, there isn’t much room for Laporte to fight for his space. At 29 years old, playing time is of the utmost importance for the Spanish international defender. Therefore, signing for Crystal Palace can appeal to him.

Palace fans are tired of mid-table mediocrity. For many years they have had a team capable of pushing the top half of the table, but they lacked the winning mentality and confidence to achieve these goals.

At Manchester City, this winning philosophy is essentially ingrained in every player. Therefore, Laporte could bring some valuable lessons to the young players at Selhurst Park.

Laporte had a very successful pre-season game today. He got an assist and looked sharp throughout the match, leaving City fans wondering why he’s been transfer-listed in the first place. Long story short, Palace must act quickly before the champions change their minds.

Do you think Crystal Palace will sign Aymeric Laporte?
