Report: Crystal Palace join Arsenal & Everton in race to sign £5,000-a-week Championship gem
According to the Express, Crystal Palace will scout Arsenal and Everton target Levi Colwill in the Championship play-off final tomorrow.
What’s the story?
Well, the Eagles already pulled Chelsea’s pants down by taking Marc Guéhi from them last summer, and they could now do it again.
The Express believe Crystal Palace will scout the on-loan defender when Huddersfield take on Nottingham Forest at Wembley on Sunday.
Scouts from Leicester City, Brighton and Southampton are also set to visit Wembley tomorrow to take a look at the teenager.
Interestingly, Colwill was born in Southampton – presumably, he may fancy a loan move to St Mary’s next season as a result.

Crystal Palace, Arsenal & Everton surely have no chance
In our view, there is no way Thomas Tuchel makes the same mistake he made last summer with Guéhi.
Guéhi is arguably now worth at least £50m, and looks set to become a regular for the Three Lions and Gareth Southgate.
As a result, Chelsea will surely decide against selling Colwill, especially as they have already lost Antonio Rudiger, although we believe they’d be open to another season-long loan deal.
Patrick Vieira, Mikel Arteta and Lampard will hope that Huddersfield do not achieve promotion tomorrow, however, as the Terriers would then be favourites to keep the £5,000-a-week man on loan – in our view at least.
Above all, though, Colwill must perform at Wembley tomorrow, or those scouting him may lose interest.
