English Premier League new entrants, Crystal Palace, is believed to have beamed its search light on Nigerian international and Hull City striker, Sone Aluko, in a bid for survival in the top flight league this season.
The move by Palace, according to reports, was as due to the player’s refusal to sign a new deal to stay at Hull City.
An English tabloid, The Daily Mirror, reckons Aluko has “snubbed” the Tigers’ offer and is on his way to Crystal Palace for £2.6 million (an equivalent of N676 million), as the club is upbeat he can shoot them to Premier League survival.
Meanwhile, Aluko appears to accept the offer of Hull City’s boss, Steve Bruce, which is understood to be a lucrative three-year deal, “a very good one”, and has confirmed talks are on as the club concentrates on getting Aluko fit.
The Nigerian is sidelined until February with a torn Achilles, but the Eagles have targeted him as the forward who can shoot them to Premier League survival.
