USA starlet Haji Wright is ‘attracting interest from Crystal Palace and the Premier League side have been quoted $10.6m by Antalyaspor… with suitors from Italy also keen on January swoop’
USMNT striker Haji Wright could be the next striker for Selhurst Park to serenade with the Turkish-based forward linked to Crystal Palace.
According to a report in Turkey, the Premier League team are the ‘strongest candidate’ for Wright’s services, with multiple clubs rumored to be interested.
The Antalyaspor star scored at the World Cup, specifically during the USA’s 2-1 Round of 16 loss to Holland.
Crystal Palace could be in for USMNT striker, Haji Wright, who has been dominant in Turkey
While his intent to score the stupendous goal can be questioned, his record in Turkey is hard to gloss over.
As Wright readies for more action on the transcontinental country, he sits second the league goal-scoring charts with nine goals in 12 appearances.
He may not get to add to his impressive goal tally with the Eagles needing to put forward a figure within the range of $10.6million.

Though, they aren’t the only interested club. Serie A side Atalanta and four other teams.
Palace are reproted to have made contact with the Red-Whites, with official talks said to be imminent.
Wright’s scoring rate sits four below Fenerbache and Ecuador’s Enner Valencia but ahead of every other player in the league.

Wright has scored 24 times in 47 total appearances for Antalyaspor, since joining from Danish club SønderjyskE.
