Crystal Palace plot move for West Ham winger Michail Antonio, feel they can get him after failed 2018 attempt

Aiden Cusick

The West Ham United winger was reportedly the subject of Crystal Palace interest a year ago.

Crystal Palace are 'plotting a move' for the West Ham United winger, Michail Antonio, according to the Daily Mirror.

The newspaper reports that Palace tried to sign Antonio a year ago, but claims 'there is now a feeling' that the Eagles can convince West Ham to sell.

The Hammers have strengthened their attack through the signings of Pablo Fornals and Sebastien Haller, whose arrivals, it is suggested, could see Antonio's opportunities limited this forthcoming campaign.

And Crystal Palace's need for the 29-year-old could increase if Wilfried Zaha is prised away from Selhurst Park, amid reports of interest from Arsenal and Everton, among others.

The Daily Telegraph reported this time last year that Palace were weighing up a £15 million offer for Antonio.

But how much the Eagles would be willing to pay now, not to mention how much West Ham would be willing to accept, remains to be seen.

The former non-league player still has two years left on what is, according to the Guardian, a £70,000-a-week contract at the London Stadium.


EXCLUSIVE: West Ham enquire about loan deal for Lyon hitman

West Ham have asked Lyon about Bertrand Traore, but having spent their summer budget already – they could only sanction a loan deal with a view to a permanent deal, we can reveal.

The 23-year-old former Chelsea youngster has been in brilliant form for Lyon, claiming 20-goals in two seasons and the Hammers are keen to add him to bring him alongside their new club-record signing Sebastian Haller.

However, Haller’s deal has meant West Ham’s finances are limited so they are now looking at Traore – but Lyon appear unlikely to sanction a loan move.

Sources close to Lyon believe that both Tottenham and Arsenal are considering a move for Traore – who can play out wide as well as up-front.

...and some old tosh from The Express saying West Ham are reportedly lining up a shock move for Emanuel Adebayor (35).

Thanks Alan,

Antonio is worth keeping, even if not a regular starter next season. Can't see the appeal of Palace, except maybe paying him more money.
