Crystal Palace set to land West Ham winger

West Ham favourite Michail Antonio is set to move across London this summer to sign for Crystal Palace.

The Mirror have reported that West Ham are willing to listen to offers for 28-year-old winger Michail Antonio who has apparently been told that he is not in the long-term plans for the East London side.

Antonio has been heavily linked with a summer move and several Premier League clubs, including Bournemouth and Newcastle, are interested in him. However, Crystal Palace are favourites to land his signature.

The England player has been unlucky with injuries and only made 21 appearances last season, scoring three times and creating one assist. He has been called up to the senior England squad but is yet to make an appearance.

When he is fit, Antonio is a huge asset for West Ham and he was voted Hammer of the Year in 2017.

One of Antonio’s main strengths is his versatility. During his time, Antonio has played as a winger, a forward and even in defence as a right-back.

Since signing from Nottingham Forest in 2015, Antonio has made 90 appearances in all competitions for West Ham, contributing 21 goals and 11 assists in the process.

Antonio signed a new contract last May and is contracted to the Hammers until June 2021.
