Crystal Palace have reportedly emerged as suitors for RB Leipzig midfielder Ilaix Moriba.

According to Foot Mercato, Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has personally contacted Moriba to convince him of a move to London.

After joining RB Leipzig in a €16 million switch from FC Barcelona last summer, Moriba featured just six times for ‘Die Roten Bullen’ before he headed out on loan to Valencia in January.

The 19-year-old central midfielder went on to play 18 matches for the Spanish La Liga side before returning to his parent club. In order to find regular playing time, Moriba could move out on loan again.
