Palace to sign former Liverpool goalkeeper ahead of Spurs clash

Desperate times

Crystal Palace are set to sign a former Liverpool goalkeeper after it was revealed they have no fit first-team goalkeeper for the game against Tottenham.

The Eagles have had some very troubling luck in recent times and their injury problems are really building up.

No problems come much bigger than in the goalkeeping position as their two first-team options have been dealt injuries.

Julian Speroni was already on the sidelines with a long-term injury to his knee ligaments.

Then, out of the blue came a big problem with Wayne Hennessey on Tuesday morning.

The Wales goalkeeper was revealed to have suffered a big injury in training, as announced by TalkSport.

The rumours are suggesting that the player suffered potential Achilles tendon damage, possibly rupturing it.

While that is not entirely confirmed, it looks as though the side have made their move for a new goalkeeper.

New name

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri is the man that Crystal Palace are set to sign prior to the game at the weekend.

With no first team goalkeeper and no options ahead of a very important run until the end of the season, they have been forced into the free market.

The player is available on a free transfer and ESPN now report that the player is poised to join the side.

The 35-year-old cancelled his contract with Fluminense at the end of last year.

Roy Hodgson managed the player for a short time while at Liverpool and could be why

Rumour: Nightmare for Crystal Palace as they have no goalie vs Tottenham

Safe to say, the Wayne Hennessey news came as a surprise to everyone.

The Welshman was training as normal until a horror injury hit the side in the time which they needed him most.
