Last time out, Crystal Palace defeated Wolves 3-2 to enter the international break on a winning note. With seven points from their first four league games, they are currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League table.

This weekend, Roy Hodgson’s team will play again, traveling to Aston Villa. Here are some of the most recent rumors and transfer news coming out of the club in the meantime.
According to a report by Football Insider, Crystal Palace is in the ‘race’ to acquire Colchester United striker Bradley Ihionvien. Burnley, a Premier League rival, and the Championship’s Watford, Leicester City, and Norwich City are all said to be interested.

Ihionvien, a 19-year-old player, spent last season on loan with Maldon & Tiptree in the non-league to gain some experience. Since his return, he has made six appearances for the U’s and scored twice, and it appears that they may have a serious fight on their hands to keep him given interest from teams higher up the football food chain.

Winger was noticed.
This past summer, Crystal Palace reportedly considered a bold deal to bring Eden Hazard, a former Chelsea winger, back to London. The 32-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Real Madrid at the end of the previous season. He has scored 167 goals throughout his club career.

Dean Jones, a journalist, stated: “I wouldn’t be surprised if Hazard decided to stop playing football right now. He has received several excellent offers, including one from Crystal Palace to play in the Premier League once more, but he does not appear to be motivated to make a comeback.

It’s been a while since he played, so it might take him some time to play at the highest level. He would have to work very hard to get back in shape.

“Since he is a free agent, clubs that have expressed interest in him have not been shut out, but this player is very self-assured, is not influenced by outside noise or behaviors, and will make the decision entirely on his own terms,” a source said.
