REPORT: Palace Have Made Seven-Figure Bid For Jeroen Zoet

2 Posted by - August 12, 2017 - News

Crystal Palace head into today’s home season opener against Huddersfield Town with just two first-team goalkeepers on their books but after Frank de Boer spoke yesterday about his desire to bring in a new stopper, rumours surrounding PSV’s Jeroen Zoet are beginning to gather real pace.

This piece gives details of a seven-figure bid for Zoet from Palace, whilst also disclosing who else wants him.

As things stand, no one is 100% sure who de Boer will opt for as the starting man against the Terriers, having used both Wayne Hennessey and Julian Speroni and different points during pre-season but after losing Steve Mandanda at the start of the summer, the Dutchman has made no secret of the fact that he’s keen to secure further competition for the current pair.

Given Zoet’s nationality, it’s easy for the press to link the Eagles with a move for him but in truth, he’s exactly the sort of man we’d need to bring in if we are intent on finding a new undisputed number to fill the goal in SE25. There will inevitably be a few who continue to pour scorn on a potential move for him but from a personal perspective, I’ll happily admit to being extremely excited by the prospect of seeing him in red and blue.

There are still three weeks of the transfer window left to go, meaning that de Boer and the Palace board have plenty of time to get a deal over the line but after a prolonged spell with little to no concrete talk over a new goalkeeper, it finally seems as though we’re set to see some visible movement in the coming days.

Are you happy at the thought of Zoet swapping the Netherlands for south Norwood, or would you rather we kept our search going for a little while longer?

    I’ve looked at every video and opinion on Zoet I can find over the last week and the big question with him is whats he like under pressure from corners and free kicks ? I could put a you tube video of Jules and Wayne that makes them look good as far as saves are concerned but its the mistakes and dealing with balls in to the box that is the big thing with a keeper in the Prem ! He looks like he has the physic for it but time will tell.

    Whats with all the talk of Andros leaving do you think we may let him go ?
