Crystal Palace linked with a move for PSG wunderkind: A good option for Hodgson

Crystal Palace have been linked with Paris Saint-Germain youngster Timothy Weah, it has been claimed.

According to the French outlet RMC Sport, Timothy Weah who turned 19 in February, has garnered interest from the likes of Crystal Palace, Rennes and a third club whose identity is yet to be known.

The United States International made the jump from PSG-B to the senior side at the start of the season, but due to a lack of playing time, he was loaned out to Scottish side Celtic in the winter transfer window.

The 19-year-old managed only two appearances in the first half of the season where he scored one goal for the French giants. His loan spell at Celtic seems to have been a bit of success, with the PSG forward managing 11 appearances for the club, scoring thrice and assisting once in the process.

Timothy Weah: A good option for Hodgson 

Weah has shown good signs in his early days as a professional footballer. The right-footed forward is a fine dribbler who, with his acceleration, can give any defender a tough time. The teenager’s vision has improved, and at such a young age, sky is the limit for the PSG wonder-kid.

Roy Hodgson generally plays a 4-4-2 formation in the Premier League, with Zaha deployed on the wings or up top. Weah, thanks to his versatility, is another such player who can fit into Hodgson’s plans pretty well. The young forward is also versatile, and can be deployed as a striker or as a wide player.

An area of worry for the youngster is his off the ball movement, which has raised doubts over the teenager’s potential. Apart from this particular concern, everything seems to be working in favour of the United States International.

From his trickery to his knack to create a pass out of nothing to his calmness in front of the goal, not many managers would say no to such a bright young talent.

All in all, Weah would be a good signing for the Eagles, seeing the talent the 19-year-old possesses. If he can realise his potential, he could well become one of the best footballers in the world.
