Crystal Palace can repeat masterclass with Tommy Conway deal

Crystal Palace are reportedly considering a move for Bristol City striker Tommy Conway in the January transfer window and it could see Steve Parish repeat some previous transfer masterclasses.

According to Football League World, the Eagles are keen on signing both Conway and Antoine Semenyo from the Robins in January, with the report claiming that Conway could be sent back on loan to the Ashton Gate outfit in order to continue his development.

The 20-year-old has burst onto the scene this season with the Championship outfit, contributing seven goals and three assists in 16 appearances for Bristol City, having only managed one goal and one assist in 11 previous appearances.

Would Conway be a good signing?





Conway mainly features as a centre-forward and would likely challenge Odsonne Edouard and Jean Philippe-Mateta for a starting spot in Patrick Vieira’s side in the future, with his goalscoring record so far this season suggesting that he could be a more clinical option than the two Frenchman currently in Palace’s attack.

Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson was full of praise for Conway after he scored a brace in their 4-1 win over Coventry City earlier in the season, saying:

“He will probably be disappointed he didn’t get a hat-trick. But that’s what you want, you want ambitious players.

“He is a youngster, very hungry for success and he works exceptionally hard at his game and on a physical and psychological level he has made great strides over the last 12 months.”

Palace chairman Parish has seen his side have a lot of success in bringing in players after impressing in the Championship in recent seasons, with Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise both starring in Vieira’s side after arriving from QPR and Reading respectively.

The Eagles also took a gamble on Marc Guehi after he flourished in the second tier on loan with Swansea City and he has established himself as a full England international since his switch to Selhurst Park, so there is clearly a lot of talent to be found in the Championship.

Crystal Palace beat Sheffield United in their first game of 2021, but what was the score?

If Conway can continue his impressive start to the season and earn a move to Palace in January, there seems little reason why he can’t go on to be similarly successful for the Eagles in the Premier League, so it could prove to be another masterclass by looking to England’s lower divisions for new signings.
