Crystal Palace are monitoring Perr Schuurs as a potential replacement for Marc Guehi, with Newcastle United also interested in the Torino man.

According to Daily Mail, Crystal Palace are chasing Perr Schuurs as they seek to ramp up their defence for the upcoming season. The 23-year-old Serie A defender is also interested in Newcastle United, as Palace could see him as a viable replacement for Marc Guehi.

Perr Schuurs has had a good season under his belt with Torino. He has caught the attention of many top clubs, particularly from the Premier League. Real Madrid were also linked momentarily, but the general direction seems like England.

Schuurs might open the doors to a move to England if he lands a concrete offer from one of the suitors. Liverpool’s name got mentioned several times, but Jurgen Klopp may have switched his attention elsewhere, with Benjamin Pavard reportedly linked with a move.

Newcastle United are also keeping tabs for some time now, with the 23-year-old Serie A defender considered a serious option by Eddie Howe. However, there are plenty of things to consider for Schuurs before deciding on a big-name club, as he would want regular playing time.

Does he get that at Newcastle, considering the dynamism of current starting dup Fabian Schar and Sven Botman? There are doubts, and hence he could open his doors for a move to one of the mid-table sides, namely Crystal Palace. Profile-wise, he suits them perfectly, although much will depend on what Torino ask in return.

Palace may see an immediate need to bring a new centre-back, considering Marc Guehi continues to attract plenty of interest. The England international could become their full-time captain next season and is a key player for the London club.

However, he might move on if one of the top six sides makes a move for him this summer. In that scenario, Palace might view Schuurs as the ideal replacement option, as they might look to get him on the cheap. Even without Guehi departing, they could still bring the 23-year-old Serie A defender to London to reinforce their backline.

For now, Crystal Palace are only monitoring his situation, but there might be an intent to make a formal approach soon. They must act fast before one of the bigger sides, including Newcastle, make their presence felt in this window, which may result in the Eagles losing out on the centre-back.

Vranckx: “I am very happy for the team, I have been training a lot and learning a lot, I just have to keep going” | Rossoneri Blog - AC Milan News

Following an unsuccessful loan spell at AC Milan, Aster Vranckx is expected to return to Wolfsburg in Germany, where he isn’t going to stick around for long.

That’s according to Sacha Tavolieri, who took to Twitter to reveal that an avenue to the Premier League is being tried, with Crystal Palace and Fulham targeted.

He explains that the ‘preferred solution’ for Vranckx is a move to the Premier League, and while he probably knows the top clubs won’t want him just yet, the prospect of a transfer a bit further down the table can appeal.

That’s why his profile ‘has been presented’ to both Crystal Palace and Fulham ahead of July, with both seemingly seen as ideal landing spots for the young Belgian.

There’s no denying how well the Craven Cottage side did under Marco Silva this season following their return to the Premier League, as they finished the campaign in 10th with 15 wins from 38 games.

Crystal Palace, down their end, struggled a bit more, but turned everything around after re-appointing Roy Hodgson, finishing 11 points clear of the relegation zone in 11th.

Therefore, a move to a mid-table side, which is exactly what the Eagles and Fulham are at this moment in time, is being targeted for Vranckx.
