9 goals, 4 assists.. This man would be perfect for Crystal Palace



Crystal Palace could always look in the Championship for a replacement if Wilfried Zaha leaves in the summer.

Zaha signed a five-year contract in the summer, but another disappointing season with Palace fighting relegation could have convinced him to take up one of the offers from the big Premier League teams who continue to be interested even though he is likely to cost a large amount.

He is a key threat in the final third for the Eagles, and without him they would probably be in a relegation spot. Therefore his departure would have a significant impact on the team with a strong replacement being key.

Kamil Grosicki joined Hull in January 2017 when they were in the Premier League, but decided to stay with them when they were relegated.

He was limited to three assist in the Premier League last season, but he appears to have fully settled in at Hull this season. His 9 goals and 4 assists have been key in helping them avoid a second-consecutive relegation, which is a real threat as Sunderland would attest to.

His goalscoring contributions are important, but he is also important creatively as well because he averages 1.1 key passes per game. Therefore, he is important in breaking through the opposition defence with his vision and intricate passing even though he is a winger.

He could replicate some of Zaha’s numbers in the final third, although they would have to bring someone else in to properly replace the Ivory Coast international due to the key role he plays. However, Grosicki would be a cheap option to bring in and help the transition.
