Crystal Palace are reportedly planning a major summer overhaul with manager Roy Hodgson set to be replaced by Sean Dyche.
The Eagles are also interested in signing two Burnley players – winger Dwight McNeil and central defender, James Tarkowski.
According to Mirror Football, Palace want Dyche at the helm this summer as they are worried that they may miss out on him if they put it off till 2021.
The report states that Palace may have to pay a compensation of around £10million to sign Dyche, who has been at Burnley since 2012.
Palace also want to sign 20-year-old English winger Dwight McNeil, who has been impressive for the Clarets over the last two seasons, as well as England international, James Tarkowski.
A good rebuild in the offing for Crystal Palace?
Crystal Palace have had a decent 2019-20 season, and are set to stay in the Premier League for yet another season, despite not making too many signings last summer.
The Eagles need to rebuild their ageing squad soon, which could also include a new manager as manager Roy Hodgson is not being seen as a long-term option.
Dyche could be a very good appointment as the Burnley manager has helped the Clarets to two promotions to the Premier League, and even helped them finish in a Europa League spot.
There has been some criticism about the kind of football that Dyche’s team play, but it has been effective and helped Burnley stay in the Premier League.
Palace under Hodgson also play conservative and pragmatic football, which makes the appointment of Dyche a perfect fit as it would mean a low transition time.
The two players linked with a move to Palace will also fit in well at the club. McNeil is an old-fashioned winger who likes to take on defences and put in crosses into the box, while also chipping with the odd goal. He is a player with a lot of potential and could be a replacement for Wilfred Zaha, who could finally leave Palace in the summer.
Tarkowski is a solid central defender, who likes to put in tackles – both in the air and on the ground – and dominate strikers. He is an experienced Premier League player, who could be a long-term replacement for Gary Cahill in the Palace defence.
The triple swoop from Burnley would be a good move and could perhaps give Palace some stability in the league, and maybe even challenge for a Europa League spot in the future.
