As per multiple sources in the English media, former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie could be set for a surprise return to the Premier League this summer.
The 33-year-old Dutchman, now plying his trade with Turkish giants Fenerbahce, is reportedly on the wishlist of recently-appointed Crystal Palace manager Frank De Boer.
The Dutch tactician sees his fellow countryman as the ideal addition to his Eagles squad ahead of next season, with Van Persie’s wealth of Premier League experience proving an in-demand trait at Selhurst Park.
Van Persie proved himself as one of the finest strikers in the modern Premier League era during his 11-year stint in the English top-flight, where, after, overcoming constant injury concerns early in his career, he went on to set the division alight with his famous left foot.
All told, the former Feyenoord star notched 144 goals in 280 Premier League appearances, while his goalscoring exploits for the Dutch national side (50 goals in 101 appearances) are none too shabby either.
Despite his age, Van Persie has more-or-less maintained his ratio of 1 strike every 2 games in the Turkish top-flight, where he has found the net 25 times in 54 appearances.
