Monday Palace Rumours
Quite a few links today in what has otherwise been a reasonably quiet month on the rumour mill.
First up is Costa Rica's Arsenal striker Joel Campbell. The player spent last season on loan at Olympiakos and was impressive in their World Cup opener against Uruguay on Saturday - scoring one and assisting one in their 3-1 win.
Apparently on Twitter, former striker Clinton Morrison contacted co-chairman Steve Parish to say that Campbell could well be worth a gamble on next season if Arsenal were prepared to loan him for Premiership experience, and Parish answered.
'Our Chief Scout Tim Coe been banging on about him for 3 months to be fair.'
Now, hardly confirmation that a deal is being done, but we are obviously looking at the player in some capacity.
It's suggested in the media though that the 21 year old will be given a chance with Arsenal this pre season, before any decision is taken on his immediate future.
We are also being linked with Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano.
The 29 year old spent last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, and was used at right midfield or even right back at some points, and he was quite impressive playing 28 times in the league, scoring four goals.
It's said he would be available for around £2.5million and we are apparently interested in signing him, along with Aston Villa and Sunderland.
As for outgoing news, it's being reported that Tom Ince is now in talks with Queens Park Rangers, with the 22 year old assessing all his options with him being out of contract at Blackpool this summer, having spent the end of last season with us on loan.
Having turned down Inter Milan and stated his intention to stay in England, it's looking increasing unlikely that he will return to Selhurst Park.
Right back Jack Hunt is being linked with a season long loan move to Blackburn Rovers this summer. The player is yet to make an appearance for us having signed last summer, and then unfortunately broken his ankle during training. He did spent the second half of the season out on loan with Barnsley though to get him some game time following his period out, and he made 11 appearances for them.
Finally, Southend United have confirmed that they would be very interested in taking striker Kwesi Appiah on loan for the season following his spell with Wimbledon last campaign.
Manager Phil Brown is quoted as saying.
'Kwesi really caught our eye with his pace when he played against us for Wimbledon last season and we would like to bring him in if we can.'
