Crystal Palace make Lens midfielder Cheick Doucoure priority transfer target


Lens midfielder Cheick Doucoure is a priority summer target for Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira.

The Telegraph says Vieira has known Doucoure for some time owing to his time at Nice and believes the player would take to English football positively.

Doucoure has impressed for Lens since their promotion in the season of 2019/20. His two years in Ligue 1 have seen the 22-year-old develop into a fine young talent.

Such is the talent, that Palace signing him would represent a major coup for the club. However, reports suggest other clubs, that can offer European football, are also in the market for the player.

Doucoure has two years left on his current Lens deal and as such would command a relatively small fee of around £15m, it has been claimed. It is believed that this would not represent a stumbling block for Palace.
