Victor Moses & Oumar Niasse: Crystal Palace transfer updates

The Evening Standard have provided updates on Crystal Palace’s proposed moves for both Victor Moses and Oumar Niasse.

Palace eyeing additions

The Eagles have endured a somewhat-underwhelming season to this point, with Roy Hodgson’s men currently sitting in 14th in the Premier League table, having picked up just 22 points from 21 fixtures.

While the capital outfit have conceded just 26 goals, fewer than the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, they have managed to find the net on a paltry 19 occasions.

As such, rumours have been rampant of late that Palace are on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this month.

The Eagles were expected to secure a deal for now-former Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke, but pulled the plug on their interest due to the English youngster’s recent fitness issues. Solanke, as a result, went on to join Bournemouth last week:

As such, the board at Selhurst Park are now said to have switched their attentions to out-of-favour Everton hitman Oumar Niasse.

Senegalese international Niasse has failed to register a single Premier League start to this point in the season.

The likes of Richarlison and Cenk Tosun both sit ahead of the African in the Toffees’ centre-forward pecking order.

And, as per the aforementioned report from the Evening Standard, Palace, who attempted to sign Niasse last January, are therefore hopeful in their chances of sealing a loan deal for Niasse this month.

Moses to Cardiff?

Chelsea winger/wing-back Victor Moses, meanwhile, has also been hotly-tipped for a January move to Palace.

The Eagles were rumoured to have been closing on a £12 million deal for the Nigerian wide-man, but, as per a further update from the Evening Standard, Moses could instead be headed for Cardiff City.

The Bluebirds hope to take advantage of Palace switching their attentions to additions up-top by sealing a loan deal for the Chelsea man over the coming weeks.
