After a rather interesting first season at Crystal Palace, Patrick Vieira hopes to strengthen considerably this summer to try to be even more competitive in the Premier League next season. The former Nice coach had also targeted the profile of young Lensois midfielder Cheick Doucouré (22), who had even reached an agreement with Crystal Palace on a possible contract.
But this Sunday The Sun tells us that Crystal Palace is currently facing the demands of RC Lens in this case. Indeed, the northern club is asking around 30 million euros to let their player go to the Premier League. A fairly substantial sum that the Eagles do not wish to pay. Patrick Vieira could turn to another track if Lens does not lower its price.
