Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has rubbished a suggestion that the club have made a bid – formal or otherwise – for Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster. Hodgson insisted last week that another striker was the club’s current priority in the transfer window, and that a move for Benrahma was not in an advanced position by any means.
Steve Parish said “At the moment [a move for Benrahma] is not something we’ve discussed at great length. The interest we would have would be totally dependent on the price because it’s not really the priority area. It is not our priority. We’re still looking to get another striker in, that is the priority. Maybe a wide midfielder, but how much funds we have I couldn’t possibly tell you. We know that he’s a good player, but not only we know he’s a good player, a lot of other people know that he’s a good player because he’s shown it during the last two seasons. I have no intention to get involved with discussing his qualities. We’ll see what happens, he’s a player whose name has been mentioned, obviously a player that we do know, but there’s going to have to be a lot happening before a concrete move can be possible.”
Roy Hodgson is hopeful of securing more players to add to the squad depth at Selhurst Park, with Michy Batshuayi, Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson joining the club this summer.
