Crystal Palace linked with Claudio Gomes

Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Manchester City midfielder Claudio Gomes as Patrick Vieira begins to make his mark in south London.

What’s the story?

According to, the 20-year-old has attracted the attention of the Eagles, who could be tempted to pursue a loan move for the Frenchman over the coming months.

The report claimed that Palace may decide to fill up their Premier League loan quota with a handful of Arsenal or City players this summer, and Gomes is a prime candidate.

Should Palace sign Gomes?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

Parish must sanction Palace swoop for Gomes

It’s set to be an intriguing summer at Selhurst Park as Vieira oversees a major overhaul of the first team squad.

Several key figures have departed the capital club following the expiration of their contracts last month, leaving Palace threadbare in multiple positions.

The former Nice manager will have to bolster his ranks on a shoestring budget due to the financial impact of the ongoing pandemic, which means that astute loan signings could be vitally important.

Therefore, chairman Steve Parish must sanction a swoop for Gomes over the coming months in order to provide Vieira with the tools he requires to succeed at Selhurst Park.

Although he lack experience in senior football, the youngster comes with an enviable pedigree and was lauded by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola back in 2018.

When asked about Gomes’ contribution in training, the Spaniard said: “He has been so good, so good,”

When questioned on whether the youngster would be a part of City’s first team squad the following season, Guardiola added: “My opinion is that at that age you have to play. You need minutes, if not with us, then with the second team.

“But it could be like what happened with Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz – he could stay with us because from what we have seen in these days, the impression is good, so good.”

Gomes has found opportunities hard to come by in the Manchester City first team, making just three appearances in the domestic cups, two of those coming in the 2018/19 campaign.

However, he could be a valuable addition to Palace’s ranks, replacing the likes of James McCarthy while allowing Vieira to focus his resources on other positions.
