Crystal Palace are currently blessed with two fantastic wingers in the shape of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend but according to reports in Italy, the Eagles are already eyeing up a move for Kosovo international Milot Rashica to strengthen their hand this summer.
The 22-year-old is currently on the books at Werder Bremen having impressed during the two-and-a-half years he spent playing for Dutch side Vitesse and whilst his game is far from the finished product, there are definitely signs that he has what it takes to make the step up to the next level.
Primarily seen as a right-winger, Milot is also capable of playing on the left and in the hole just behind the striker, giving his game the sort of flexibility that Roy Hodgson will love. After managing just one goal in nine Bundesliga appearances last term, this season he’s been in far better form, with four goals and one assist to his name across just 513 minutes of football. Factor in another strike in the DFB-Pokal and Rashica is averaging a goal involvement for every 99 minutes across the current campaign.
Under contract at Bremen until 2022, a move for the winger won’t come cheap but given the time there still is to run between now and the summer window opening, it’s certainly an intriguing line to follow. He may not be a guaranteed first-team starter straightaway but all signs point towards the Kosovo man being the sort of rough diamond that Palace fans love from the moment they arrive.
