English Premier League (EPL) side Crystal Palace are showing keen interest in signing Nigerian midfielder Raphael Onyedika this summer.

The Super Eagles’ midfield enforcer has been with Belgian giants Club Brugge since 2022, following his move from Danish side FC Midtjylland.

Onyedika was instrumental in Club Brugge’s Jupiler League title-winning campaign, contributing four goals and the same number of assists in the recently concluded season.

His impressive performances have caught the attention of Crystal Palace, who are looking to bolster their midfield for the upcoming season. Negotiations with Club Brugge may begin soon.
