Crystal Palace favourites to snap up Serie A’s latest striking star

| 04.04.2017

One of Italian football’s brightest attacking talents now looks set for a move to the Premier League. And the verdict on our trading floor is that Crystal Palace are favourites for the man in question – Diego Falcinelli.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan at Serie A outfit Crotone, and despite the Calabrian outfit enduring a difficult campaign, he’s caught the eye with nine goals in the top-flight.

Strong, pacy and with an eye for goal, it’s a surprise that parent club Sassuolo have been happy to loan out the talented forward.

But with game-time not forthcoming for I Neroverdi, a move to the Premier League would surely prove too tough to turn down.

Palace are currently 3/1 favourites for his signature. And it’s no surprise that Sam Allardyce wants a new addition up front, with Loic Remy unlikely to sign permanently following a dismal loan spell at Selhurst Park, while Fraizer Campbell – for all his hard work – has struggled for goals.

However, they face stiff competition from the likes of West Bromwich Albion (4/1), Newcastle United (5/1) and Stoke City (8/1).

Meanwhile, there’s an outside chance he could head for either one of the Merseyside giants, with 8s for a move to Everton and 10/1 for the Marsciano native to head to Anfield.
