Having helped his side make a relatively positive start to the current campaign in the Premier League, it will be intriguing to see whether Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira is able to bolster his squad next year.
One of the individuals who has recently been linked with a move to Selhurst Park is Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.
According to The Sun, Palace are reportedly weighing up the possibility of submitting a bid for the Fulham midfielder who is currently on loan at Napoli.
Here, we have decided to take a look at what we know so far about the Eagles’ interest and assess whether a transfer is likely to happen.
What do we know so far?
As reported by The Sun, Palace are believed to be looking into the possibility of challenging Napoli for Zambo Anguissa’s signature.
It is understood that the Premier League side could convince Fulham to part ways with the midfielder if they meet the Championship side’s valuation which is believed to be in the region of £20m.

Is a transfer likely to happen?
This particular move will depend on whether Napoli are indeed willing to splash the cash on Zambo Anguissa as Palace could find it difficult to convince the midfielder to make the move to Selhurst Park if the Italian side are looking to reach a permanent agreement with Fulham.
Currently a mainstay in Napoli’s side, the 25-year-old has helped the club win eight of their last 10 league games by starting in these particular fixtures.
If the Serie A leaders are able to qualify for the Champions League next year, Zambo Anguissa could be tempted to stay at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona as he will be handed the opportunity to test himself at the highest level.
Taking this into consideration, Vieira may find it beneficial to draft up a list of alternative options to the Cameroon international as there is no guarantee that he will be able to sign the midfielder.
