Crystal Palace, Everton make offers to sign Jaden Philogene

Crystal Palace and Everton have reportedly lodged formal offers to sign Hull City winger Jaden Philogene, who prefers a move to Barcelona.

According to Spanish journalist Carlos Monfort on Jijantes FC, Jaden Philogene has been the subject of interest from Barcelona. However, the Catalan giants have not stepped up their efforts to sign the English winger, who prefers a move to the club. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace and Everton have submitted formal offers to sign the Hull City attacker in the summer transfer window.

Jaden Philogene: Finding stability at Hull City

Jaden Philogene has come leaps and bounds since joining Hull City from Aston Villa last summer. The Englishman is a native of London and spent half a decade at the West Midlands club but could not establish a foothold in the first-team squad at Villa Park.

The 22-year-old was excellent in his debut season with Hull City, contributed to 18 goals in 32 EFL Championship outings by finding the back of the net 12 times and providing six assists. The youngster’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several well-known clubs, including Barcelona, Crystal Palace, and Everton.

A man in demand

Recent reports have claimed that Barcelona made a loan-to-buy bid to secure Jaden Philogene’s services in the summer transfer window. The Catalan giants have been scouring the market for a wide attacker heading into the summer transfer window, with Nico Williams their top target. However, they are keeping their options open, with Philogene being a cost-effective alternative.

But the latest update has revealed that Barcelona’s interest in Jaden Philogene has cooled, with the Blaugrana not pursuing the 22-year-old Englishman. That creates a window of opportunity for Crystal Palace and Everton, with the two Premier League clubs submitting formal offers to sign the Hull City winger.

Crystal Palace will lose Michael Olise when he joins Bayern Munich this summer. So, Philogene is a viable target to replace the Frenchman. As for Everton, Sean Dyche wants to raise his team’s ceiling and is targeting a top-quality attacker, bringing the young English winger into the picture.

In addition, Philogene is the subject of a formal offer from Ipswich Town. So, with three top-flight clubs vying for his signature, the Hull City winger might leave the Tigers after one season and join a Premier League outfit in the summer transfer window, especially with Barcelona’s interest cooling.
