Patrick Vieira eyes Arsenal transfer raid for Eddie Nketiah with Crystal Palace also keen on Nice star Kasper Dolberg
10th July 2021

CRYSTAL PALACE boss Patrick Vieira is going back to old clubs Arsenal and Nice to sign Eddie Nketiah and Kasper Dolberg.

Vieira is keen to add extra firepower to his squad and would love Nketiah — and he is available for £20million.

The 22-year-old striker may be at the point where he has to move on after years of trying to be first choice for the Gunners and with just a few games to show for it.

Vieira is also checking out a potential deal for Denmark hitman Dolberg.

The new Eagles chief signed him from Ajax two seasons ago when he was boss at Nice.

The silky 23-year-old forward was the club’s top scorer in his first season but his form dipped and Vieira was sacked in 2020.

However, there were signs of his old magic as Denmark reached the Euro semi-finals.

Dolberg is up for sale but he could be more expensive than Nketiah at £25m — with Vieira only likely to take one of the pair.

Palace are still looking for a wide man and could revisit their interest in Watford’s Senegal winger Ismaila Sarr, 23.

They had an offer of £25m plus extras turned down at the start of last season.

The Eagles are also interested in Danish centre-half Victor Nelsson, 22.

Copenhagen want £10m for the defender who may be the answer if Gary Cahill does not sign a new deal.

Nelsson has clubs after him in Germany but wants to come to the Premier League and is waiting on a deal being agreed.
