Crystal Palace to beat Premier League rivals to starlet

Nabil Bahoui (AIK Stockholm)Crystal Palace are planning a £2.5m January move for AIK Stockholm winger Nabil Bahoui, according to reports from The Express.

The former Swedish U-19 international has been earning rave reviews for his recent performances, and has been linked with the likes of Sunderland, Everton and Cardiff.

But, the Eagles are ready to beat their domestic rivals to the 22-year-old’s signature with a serious offer in the New Year.

Palace’s new sporting director Iain Moody was monitoring the youngster while in his former post at Cardiff, and is still thought to be a big fan of his abilities.

The Selhurst Park based side are thought o be ready to spend in January in a bid to avoid an immediate return to the Championship, and see adding some attacking flair to their sides as a necessary move.

Tony Pulis has recently been confirmed as their new manager, and the former Stoke manager is thought to be concerned by the team’s lack of inventiveness in the final third.

Bahoui has been impressive in Swedish football for some time, and has long been tipped to move abroad to further his development.

He only joined AIK earlier this year, but is believed to be open to a switch to one of Europe’s top leagues.

Could Nabil Bahoui add some flair to Crystal palace’s attacking set-up?
