Having previously attracted interest from Newcastle and Nottingham Forest, now it appears as though the Eagles are also eyeing Ramos ahead of a potential swoop. As per 90min, Crystal Palace, Everton, Leeds, West Ham and Wolves are all believed to be ‘monitoring’ the 18-cap Under 21 starlet, whilst Paris Saint-Germain are also ‘keen’. It’s claimed that Newcastle and Nottingham Forest have both ‘held talks’ regarding Ramos as Benfica look for offers in the region of £30million in order to sell their prodigy.

PALACE FAVOURITES TO RE-SIGN WAN-BISSAKA

South London team Crystal Palace are in pole position to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka according to the report from media portal 90Min. It was stated that Crystal Palace want the Englishman to return to Selhurst Park three years after he left the club to sign for Manchester United in a big-money transfer. The Red Devils paid around £50m to sign the right-back from Palace in the summer of 2019. Wan-Bissaka made a bright start to his Manchester United career following his move from the Eagles, but he was unable to build on it. He was a regular in the Manchester United XI in his first two seasons before he lost his place to Portuguese star Diogo Dalot during the just concluded season.


The aforementioned media outlet said Crystal Palace are in pole position to re-sign Wan-Bissaka with the player nearing an exit from the Old Trafford outfit.

Ahead of their trip to face Palace at Selhurst Park, Southampton have a lot of injury worries and they could be without seven first team players. Two of those seven first team players are their top two goalkeepers namely Alex McCarthy and Fraser Foster. The Saints signed 40-year-old goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a short-term deal until January in the bid to cover up for the injuries to the two goalkeepers.
