Freedman looks forward to the “nightmare”; Palace ready to move




Crystal Palace chief Dougie Freedman watched Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo in action on Saturday, according to Alan Nixon.

The Lowdown: Semenyo Profile

The 22-year-old is primarily a centre-forward who can also play on the wing. A Robins academy graduate, Semenyo is now a full Ghana international and has scored 22 goals in his career.

Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson said Semenyo’s “power and pace” made him a “nightmare to play against”, and it looks like the striker is on Palace’s radar.

The Last: Palace Linked to Semenyo

Nixon shared a story for The Sun, saying Freedman watched Semenyo in action on Saturday in Bristol City’s 3-2 win at Blackburn, in which the 22-year-old came off the bench.

The reporter claims Palace are waiting for the striker to be fully fit after missing the first five league games of the campaign before making a move for him.

Happy with the Palace window?

Yes, well done!

No, it needed more!

The verdict: one to watch

It looks like the Eagles are ready to move for the Ghana striker, if he stays fully fit, so a January move could be one to watch.

Semenyo has enjoyed a fine league campaign in 2021/22, contributing 20 goals in 31 games. He actually recorded more assists than goals last season, so he could be a perfect addition for Palace in the New Year.

Patrick Vieira already has a number of fascinating attackers in Selhurst Park, but after losing the experienced Christian Benteke this summer, a new center center could be useful in January.
