Four players Crystal Palace should sign

Crystal Palace are in need of some transformation this summer in order to help them towards another stable season in the top-flight of English football. It is well known that Tony Pulis has asked for a larger transfer budget compared to previous transfer windows and that a number of players will be heading towards the exits but the big question lingers of what players should Crystal Palace add to their current success? Here are four targets that Crystal Palace could have a look at this summer: Aaron Cresswell The left-back has featured for Ipswich Town 43 times this season, accumulating two goals and the Championship's joint second highest amount of assists with 13. Crystal Palace have been short of consistent quality in this position throughout the past two seasons with two of the main players in this position with both Dean Moxey & Jonathan Parr out of contract this summer. It's fair to say that Cresswell could fit into the shape that Tony Pulis has built this season with counter-attacking football being the key to Crystal Palace's success this season along with strong defending. Connor Wickham Featuring for both Sheffield Wednesday & Sunderland this season, the 21-year-old has scored 16 goals this season over the two leagues with an average of a goal every 156 minutes and collecting ten assists on the way. Crystal Palace require a consistent striker and with more than ten goals scored in the past two seasons, Connor Wickham could be built into a striker with some deadly force with the help of Tony Pulis and his coaching staff. Bafetimbi Gomis Out of contract this summer, the French forward could be an unlikely target for Crystal Palace but the question remains to be answered of whether he would be happy to give up his term of European football to join the South London side. It was tipped in January that Iain Moody travelled to France to watch the forward but nothing has since emerged of it, he has been linked to a number of clubs and this rumour is set to continue with the dominant striker searching for a club. The 28-year old has scored 22 goals this season with three of those being in Lyon's Europa League campaign. Thomas Ince At Selhurst Park on loan at the back-end of the season making eight appearances and scoring a goal on his debut, Thomas Ince could be a gem that could develop into a great player under the management of Tony Pulis. The 22-year-old has featured in 161 games in his five-season career, scoring 41 goals and creating a further 39, it is also well worth noting that the young winger has scored a goal on average every 300 minutes throughout his career so far. Pulis' interest in the player has been absolute with the Welshman tipping Ince to becoming a "top Premier League player" in the future.
