Crystal Palace are reportedly ‘shut’ to agreeing phrases with Sao Paulo over an preliminary mortgage deal for Brazilian goalkeeper Lucas Perri.
The Eagles are presently available in the market for a gloveman following accidents to each their first-team goalkeepers in Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita, though it seems a swift alternative in Perri is poised to be drafted in.
Based on Sky Sports, the 21-year-old is about to affix on an preliminary six-month mortgage take care of the Eagles having the choice to make the switch everlasting in the summertime for a price across the £3m mark.
Palace have been left naked within the goalkeeping division following accidents to Hennessey and Guaita who’re anticipated to be sidelined for ‘roughly 4 weeks’ every after they each suffered accidents towards Watford. That leaves 39-year-old Julian Speroni as the one recognised keeper on the membership, with the Argentine anticipated to start out towards Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.
Perri is simply 21-years-old however is very rated in Brazil having progressed via their youth sides – though he’s but to interrupt into his membership’s first-team and is presently third alternative at Sao Paulo. Nevertheless, that does not seem to have deterred Palace boss Roy Hodgson as he seems to be set so as to add the Brazilian to his ranks.
Crystal Palace might be getting an excellent younger goalkeeper if this switch is accomplished. He has large potential. I consider he’ll do very effectively in England. https://t.co/h9ruQABrT2
