Crystal Palace: Six players Eagles fans want the club to sign this summer

IT WAS an incredible first season back in the Premier League, but Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is sure to want to strengthen his squad this summer. We asked you, the Palace fans, via Twitter which players you'd like to see sign for the club over the summer…
Jordan Rhodes A popular choice, put forward by fans including Curtis Myring and Paul Romain. A natural born, prolific goalscorer, this Scottish international has netted 124 times in 213 games for Huddersfield and Blackburn over the past five years. Aged 24, he should be entering his prime but there are two concerns; 1) he's never played in the Premier League; and 2) it'll probably take at least £10m to prise him away from Ewood Park. A gamble, but potentially one worth taking?Nathan Redmond Cherry picking the best players from the relegated teams is a tried and tested formula and, arguably, this tricky Norwich winger is the pick of the bunch. Only 20 and with a Premier League season under his belt, this former Birmingham wide man could be a sound investment for the present and future, providing exciting back-up for Jason Puncheon and Yannick Bolasie. Already showed the Selhurst Park faithful his worth with an outstanding display in Birimingham's 4-0 win in SE25 last Easter.Aaron Cresswell With Joel Ward having been preferred, out of position, over the likes of Dean Moxey and Jonny Parr during the run-in, left-back would seem to be a priority for Tony Pulis. This Ipswich Town full-back has long been linked with a move to Palace, dating back to the Dougie Freedman era. The 24-year-old Scouser is unproven at the top level, having piled his trade exclusively in the lower divisions so far, but he could probably be snapped up on a lower fee. Was named in this year's PFA Championship team of the season.Steven N'Zonzi The French midfielder handed in a transfer request at the weekend and worked previously with Tony Pulis at Stoke City – so it's easy to see why some people are putting two and two together. Tall and athletic but also skilful and capable of chipping in with a goal, he could be an upgrade on KG Dikgacoi at the heart of the Eagles midfield. Also has five years of Premier League experience and, at 25, is in the prime of his career. This is a deal that could happen.Alfreð Finnbogason One from the left-field, but suggested by a couple of fans, including @henrykerrg on Twitter. An Icelandic international striker currently playing his club football in Holland, he has been linked with a move to Celtic. Scored 29 goals for Heerenveen and clearly knows where the net is. Could be a cheaper option than buying a homegrown centre forward.Julian Speroni In the eyes of many Palace fans, this would be the best signing of all. Unless you've been living in a cave, you'll know this club legend is out of contract and has yet to agree a new deal. The club's player of the year yet again this campaign, surely he won't be allowed to leave SE25?
